You know when you play Metroid and you see the vast expansive map and you say "Yeah! I'm a silent powerful badass and this is my playground. Adventure!!!" That's what I wanted to convey with this one. I'm very happy with Samus herself, the Chozo statues (for the most part) and the star-scape. There are few bits that could have been better but I've worked on it for so long that I had to just finish it and move on. I did manage to learn a thing or two while working on this one so I'd consider it a success. I hope everyone likes it.

P.S. Big thank you to Jaxxy for giving me some help with the coloring techniques.

As a long time fan of Metroid, this really hits the spot for me. The color palette is in tune with the motif of ambiguity that surrounds Samus.

Detail is exquisite as well. Well done, good sir. I'm glad to have worked with you.

Outstanding! I love you use of colour in your pieces, and this one more than delivers! And don't even get me started on the fine details you put into it! I agree with Sabtastic, this is definitely on its way to the front page.
