The drawing is very realistic and your interpretation of the metroid's biofunctions is very interesting, but I don't remember any metroids eating flesh in the games or them saying that they do. I think they just eat bio lightning or something.
Maytroid's Anatomy, first edition
It totally looks like an anatomy drawing for medical students.
However, I think you should have it properly scanned, some parts are a little bit blurry, as if the piece of paper was not totally flat during the scan. Plus a little adjustment on levels/contrasts (ctrl+L in Photoshop, for example), because all pencil drawings lack true blacks after being scanned. And man, THIS drawing deserves the best digitizing ever.
(+1 to all "corpses are not eaten by metroids" thing)
It's really quite amazing.
It really is... IT REALLY IS!
It's like in the back of my brain that's how I always imagined they'd look except I never realized it.
Your research and dedication to the metroid really pay off! Thank you so much for all the hard work. This image will stick in my mind prominently for years and years to come.
Wait a second.
Yes, I understand what you're trying to say, but if the Metroid attempted to inflict pain, and then intercepted the electronic signal produced throughout your nervous system, you would in effect not feel anything because the pain itself is being absorbed, so there wouldn't be any pain.
