Sorry to say this but, this looks like a photoshopped supermodel version of Samus. Which is antithetical to her character. You may as well do fan art of Ellen Ripley as recast by Meghan Fox or something. She's just not that kind of character. The entire thing thus comes as shallow.
What I'm saying here is, and I'm trying to be constructive about this, but you've made Samus look weak and OOC. Its artists not understanding the character such as yourself that's responsible for the massive failure that is Other M.
So I encourage you do this: Please, rewatch Alien, Aliens, Terminator, and Terminator 2. For if you recall, these movies are the original source material for the character that is Samus. Then, draw another edition.
This is awesome - though Samus is traditionally a blonde so I would have liked to see her hair a bit lighter. Other than that small nitpick, this could almost be another Hunter? A whole other storyline about a second Hunter would be so cool...
A very detailed and realistic version of Samus. Works like this should be seen more oftenly, there are too many drawings of pictures of her involving nudity or abnormal anatomy proportions. Thanks for the dedication this work must have taken. Very beautiful.
I like it very much, Samus looks very naturally (did he say about a woman in a high end tech battle suit xD ) And in contrast to allmost all pictures of her you did not use her only to have a excuse to show a grotesquely bustey woman. You show a very strong person, that's what I like
This is astounding. I think the insignia, home planet, and name give her a very militaristic feel as if they are a soldiers dog tags. Which fits because she was a solider before becoming a bounty hunter. At first glance, it actually thought she was a female Commander Shepard. Samus is way cooler than Shepard though.
Samus Aran: Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still But he told us where we stand And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear Claude Raines was the invisible man Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong They got caught in a celluloid jam Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space And this is how the message ran:
Science Fiction - Double Feature Dr. X will build a creature See androids fighting Brad and Janet Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.
I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel When Tarantula took to the hills And I really got hot when I saw Janet Scott Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes And passing them used lots of skills But when worlds collide, said George Pal to his bride I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a:
Science Fiction - Double Feature Dr. X will build a creature See androids fighting Brad and Janet Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show. I wanna go, oh-oh, to the late night double feature picture show. By RKO, oh-oh, at the late night double feature picture show. In the back row at the late night double feature picture show
The detail and realism on her face is stupendous! I love the reflections on her armor, and how she's holding her helmet under one arm. The planet in the background also adds to the 'surreal' factor of this image.
A small, ludicrous thing for one to notice in comparison with the REST of how amazing this is? Her visor on her helmet, holy god...
The detail on that ALONE is incredible, seriously, it looks like there is actually some structure behind it, it looks like it has been polished but still is pitted from debris impacts, has that look of colored glass to it and just LOOKS AMAZING! I freaking LOVE Those little details like the decals on the helmet and shoulder/upper arm gear, and her expression has this look like she has seen more fighting and destruction than most people EVER see.

This is some wonderful portrait work. Your concept is Samus is inspired. Unlike so many other 'reveal' shots where she's confident and alive, you've tried to do something very different here - beneath that helmet is someone who is clearly very fragile and delicate, who has seen perhaps too much whilst she's travelled the galaxy alone. It's soulful and pained and insightful, but also gives Samus a heroic stoicism and strength to endure. It's a really lovely character piece which is helped along a lot by your careful attention to details. Your logo work shows some very delicate craft and I love the overall look you've given the suit of being rusted and worn out with use. It's a nice reminder that the suit does take a real kicking against Ridley and the Space Pirates! The background tops things off with a nice touch, too Thank you for sharing this with us all!!
