Entering the Wrecked Ship - Super Metroid (Nintendo R&D1/Intelligent Systems,1994)



The Wrecked Ship was by far my favorite part of Super Metroid. Metroid games are supposed to be lonely and atmospheric, but this one section melded into honest-to-goodness horror, and it was brilliant. Metroid Fusion basically took that section and made a whole game out of it, which is one of the reasons I loved that game so much.

Samus // By: Rob Duenas

this is a really interesting depiction
it’s a lovely illustration; vibrant colours and hard edges and so on
it also employs the hypertrophied musculature generally used to depict male comic-book characters by some illustrators
the proportions are very similar to versions of Batman, Lobo, and Cable I’ve seen elsewhere
curious

^Very interesting. Most of that bulk is probably her suit though, seeing as most people don’t draw Samus as extremely muscular when not suited up (which is totally unrealistic considering she spends a lot of time in space). They also tend to draw her with enormous boobs and in extremely sexualized positions which is not really canon and is really annoying and angering because that’s not what she’s characterized as etc. I just hate inaccurate portrayals of her in fanart because…yeah. Just search “Samus” on dA if you’re curious.
I also really love this image. It’s pretty excellent fanart as fanart goes.

reblogging myself to continue this dialogue
I twigged to the exaggerated “musculature” of this version of her armour because it’s so exaggerated; the wasp-waist and tiny head, paired with the massive, massive shoulders (even by Varia Suit standards) and equally huge arms and thighs are all heavily male-coded
obviously this isn’t a natural human shape, especially for a normal woman
the blending of these visual codes is what’s really interesting about this image to me
re: sexualized depictions of Samus, I’d be lying if I said I’d never seen anything of that sort, and you’re right, it’s totally non-canonical
but fandoms do that
the critical thing, to my mind, is that Nintendo never has
even the kinda weird father/daughter thing in Fusion wasn’t sexualized overtly
I can’t speak to Other M, never having played it, but that’s Team Ninja and they do what they want, etc

Hadn’t uploaded any of these on Tumblr, so here is a photoset of fan art that I did for the Metroid Database Bestiary. You can also find some of it on my deviantart account. I can’t wait to have time again to do MORE this year. :)

Edit: WHOOPS. I screwed up the links in the original post, but they are fixed now. Also, be sure to check out the other artists who did work for this project! They are all linked in the Bestiary.

oh baby woah

holy shit these are beautiful
