Metroid Fan Art- Ridley!!!!!

Here is my interpretation of Ridley's First Encounter in Super Metroid. It's the moments when he first arrives upon Ceres Station and takes the baby Metroid back to Mother Brain. There were no survivors and Samus herself barely made it out. Ridley commands an army and is extremely powerful and intelligent. For this illustration my main goal was to show his triumphant win over the space colony as he truly is a terror to all who appose. Not to mention one of my favorite bosses of all time. So this one I tried to pull off seamlessly, hope you all enjoy the outcome!

As for whats next, that is a good question. All these characters have been making me want to do an environment. So I may take a break of just stop the series here. If I continue then Mother Brain would be next. I do have some fun ideas for her first form, we'll see!

Thanks for looking!

Also here was a scrapped sketch.

Metroid Fan Art- Spore Spawn!!!!

I finished up this one in just a few hours, lotta good planning does. And while I did get a lot of my original ideas in the final piece there were also a few happy accidents :)

So without further ado, Spore Spawn!

There are few Super Metroid bosses left, actually I'm not sure if I will continue this series or go onto another. I've gotten some other ideas I want to, so we'll see.

For those keeping track there are only a few bosses I could do, those are Ridley, Mother Brain, Chozo Statue, and Botwoon.

Metroid Fan Art- Phantoon!!!

Tried to be a bit different on this one, and had fun playing with composition and light while doing so. I'm really digging this lower camera view. I might keep it for the next few bosses, or maybe just keep on making em different. Who knows?

But this is definitely one of my favorites so far, I don't hate it :D

Cheers for looking, hope you enjoyed my interpretation of Phantoon.

Metroid Fan Art- Draygon!!

The next installment in my Metroid boss collection. This one I had a pivotal idea. "Maybe they should have more of a story." So now I'm considering going back and redoing the last two. But I also have a couple more I'd love to do. So stay tuned! See what comes next :D

Metroid Fan Art- Kraid

As never before seen! The redesign took place during some conceptual story boards for Metroid Prime 3, the sketches were loose, so I thought I'd take it upon myself to make a nice detailed version! Enjoy!

More Metroid art coming! Kraid!

So while I was doing some research on Mother Brain for that recent illustration I stumbled upon these concepts for a kraid like figure to be in Metroid Prime 3.

I loved the way they changed him from a fat dragon to more of an insect, it was really different from any other Kraid's before but equally if not more intimidating. SO, I'm starting this piece based off of that version of him.

Zelda Battle Quest Poster

Finally finished this one. I spent 3 weeks doing the values back in december, then after finishing last weeks Mother Brain piece I figured it was time to finally finish the thing. And thus we get this.

Some what steps, but not really. Loose sketch, cleaned up lines, value, color.
