First of all, sorry for the faint overall watermark on this one, I put way to much into this image and want to keep it safe for a while.

Finally I have finished this large piece! I poured a good 80 hours into it I'm sure. Samus Aran has got to be one of the most bad ass characters out there. Brave and diligent, she puts her life on the line to protect space from threats that would be other wise unstoppable if left to another. I put a lot of love and skill into this, more so then many of my other pieces, and am quite happy with it. I wanted to put a lot of elements into this, and although I did not branch out into some areas I was planning, it made itself by the end. Enjoy fellow fans :)

20x14in prints of this image Were available for a limited time.
11x17in prints are now available to buy! [link]
Prints will not have watermarks or print on the font.

EDIT - I uploaded a larger image with a few chances made to area that were really bothering me after the fact, and I dropped the watermark down a notch too so that it should be just even less obvious :3 Prints are ordered and on their way!

Don't apologize for the watermark. This is an amazing piece and with all the thieves out there, it needed it. :faint:

This reminds me of those big vertical shafts you found in Brinstar in the original Metroid,especially with the blue coloring,and the crawling enemies on the wall

I searched Samus and this was one of the only non-provocative pictures I saw (not necessarily a good or bad thing), nice job, you're a true hipster

Incredible picture. Nice perspective and I like the watercolor look of the brush. Samus just has a few space pirates and metroids to take off before she gets to Ridley. A typical Monday for her, Samus can handle it.
