This is a fan art by Tom Waterhouse of the fictional character Samus Aran from the Metroid action game series by Nintendo


Tom`s own description of his work:

“This is Samus Aran, from the Metroid series. I must admit I haven’t played a single Metroid game, they don’t really appeal to me – but I do like Samus as a character. Mostly because of the original game’s reveal that Samus is female only at the very end of the game.

I guess I know Samus best from the Super Smash Bros series. I think it shows here, as it’s a combination of Power-suit Samus and Zero-suit (no armour) Samus. I wanted to do something that showed the best of both worlds, so the armour is breaking/disintergrating away to reveal her true self.

I hope it’s to the Metroid fan’s tastes, it’s certainly not my usual thing to draw robot-like figures, so that’s why I kept it to a minimum”
