Samus Aran

Super Metroid is easily one of the best games on the Super NES video game console. Most of the character designs are pretty rad, including the game’s main heroine, Samus Aran.

Sometimes you’ve just gotta draw characters you like, y’know?

While Samus herself is 100% my drawing, the background is part of a NASA stock photo. I added a ton of stars, and changed the colors to make it feel more otherworldly, and similar to the surface of the planet Zebes.

Finally, I threw the “Sector Z” galaxy into this as a reference to Nintendo’s shared universe.
