Metroid Snowglobe by fallout161 Metroid Snowglobe by fallout161
"You've been a part of me for so long, I can't remember anything else." -Ripley, Alien 3

I see a lot of similarities between Alien series and Metroid series. Strong female lead, fearsome, speechless alien menace. Sparse dialoague. Quality sci-fi. Well, sometimes.

Pencil sketch and ~20 to 30 hrs in photoshop CS5. I could spend even more time on it, but it would be polishing a turd at this point.

I wanted to upload something I was actually satisfied with. Still not quite sure I succeeded.

This is sweet. I wish I could have a real one of these. Metroid was inspired by the Alien series. Ridley's name is even a reference to Ripley.

This is a brilliant concept.  I'm not even a fan of the zero suit but the contrast is so perfect here.  I really hope you are proud of this because you should be.

I have to say, even if you (the artist) don't like the execution, that the concept is almost 100% objectively very interesting. Turning a metroid into a snow globe with Samus inside. I really like it.

That is absolutely beautiful. If you actually feel like polishing it up, that would be incredible.
I really love this picture. It's just a shame that I haven't seen it until now.
