This must be similar to the image that all players have in their mind when they play by first time to first metroid games (inside the armour must be a boy) but the original game have a surprise at the end :P

Nice work!

MontyDrake (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 4/17/2016 09:16

Great job! Really diggin' the anatomy and blue colors.

I figured a male version would named Shamus. Nice work.

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/9/2014 21:28

You know, I never pictured what was under the helmet when I first played metroid, but it's a cool gender-swap and a nice sprite regardless.

My blind love for the metroid series compells me to tell you that this is just awsome :D
Wonderful colors. :)

Pok3' (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/13/2008 10:00
I agree with GamerTai. Great job!!!

Bacteriophage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/9/2008 21:14
It's like it breaks the rules AND follows them.

Nice work.

GamerTai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/18/2007 04:08
We need more pictures of Sam Aran!

devan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2007 07:41

i have one thing to say cool

Haze01 (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/16/2007 03:38
Glad you got an award!  I felt this was better than the others.

D-Hixxle (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/13/2007 19:21
Everything is so detailed and easy to point out. O: I'm definitely putting this in my favourites.

GamerTai (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2007 14:57

Thats pretty good.

Excalibur (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/12/2007 13:06

This is very cool. I did a boy Samus a while ago and it didn't look good at all. Yours is sweet.

beatleux (Level 1 Private) @ 7/12/2007 10:00
I loved this game, lol. Had it for GBA.

Nice job!

Orkimides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2007 09:26
May be this is the main reason, yes :P

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/12/2007 05:57
Haha, lol, because of the long hair or what?

Orkimides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2007 04:33
Curiously, your selfportrait without beard could be a portrait of a girl.

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/11/2007 18:23
I have nothing against manga in general, but featureless androgynous people done to the nth degree are just not exciting anymore. No character in the face. All look same. Also, the ear in the big portrait is seriously messed up.

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/11/2007 12:49
I really hate the manga style, like, with a burning passion, but this is in exception, it's great, once again. 

Orkimides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2007 12:02

I supose that you don't like the manga style so don't like the piece.

 by the other hand i wanted the same style of the draws that appear in the game, nothing realistic or something like that, but i think that you can't really see a girl looking the sprite.

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/11/2007 11:42
How I would picture him has nothing to do with being provable or not. You can have a young boy who does not look like a girl with a bob. That was my point. Just personal preference.

Orkimides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2007 11:03

Devan: like your life... ()

Ptoing: you can't say something that you can't proove, i'm sure that solid snake kind would be horrible for this. and it's based on the first adventure of metroid games so naturally the character must be younger than his latest jorneys.

Adarias: I recommend you see more official art of Samus Aran design to understand better the piece.

Thx for comments!

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/11/2007 10:33
If Samus was a guy, I sure would not picture him as a milkface like that.

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/11/2007 10:04
Devan, tell me, how can this possibly be "sucky"?  It rocks in color and style. 

devan (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2007 08:01
talk aboat sucky

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/11/2007 05:49
really sweet, the portrait looks kinda girlish, but the full body is excellent.

Zhou9 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/10/2007 10:30
I. Love. This. Piece.

VenomousNinja (Level 1 Private) @ 7/10/2007 09:26

JayCain (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/8/2007 18:15
Awesome work. I love the shading.

Darion (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/8/2007 15:22

Woah, awsome!

You've got my vote

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 7/7/2007 12:37

feet are slightly large and it's overly segmented in parts, also i don't really get the sense of broad shoulders or round dness from the portrait which takes up an awkward amount fo the screen (either too much, or too little, depending on what you want ti to do).  Also, the brightness of it steals a bit from the character drawing, i'd set it back quite a bit

....but still great :P

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/7/2007 02:29
awesome!! Never have seen anything of this game but the PA is great!

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 7/6/2007 23:29
Samus is a girl!?

I love it. Great colours as always.

Emanresu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2007 20:37
