Metroid- Samus Redesign by DeityofShadows Metroid- Samus Redesign by DeityofShadows
Samus Aran redesign 1.0
REDESIGN 2.0 here! :D [link]

The redesign is pretty drastic and I'm not sure how recognizable it is to the original. I tried keeping certain characteristics familiar. That said, I had fun drawing this anyways.

Some ideas:

-Slimmed down more feminine armor.
-Chozo styled armor: notice the bird-like helmet. I tried to retain that idea throughout.
-Hair streaming from the back of the helmet. I toyed with this idea and the potential of the hair transforming to a pair of "bird" wings. It may or may not be Samus's real hair underneath.

Much of this stems from my recent enthusiasm for all things Metroid: Metroid Other M updates sound pretty sweet, and I finally beat Metroid Prime I (o_0).


Samus Aran, Metroid Nintendo

Well, I have played and enjoyed the Mega Man ZX series so there might be similarities.

Well, fucknuggets! This looks pretty damn awesome! This would be incredible to see as an alternate costume for a next-gen Metroid game. Kinda reminds me of Megaman X for some reason. Wonderful concept!

I've gotten the MMX comments a lot. Considering I'm a big fan of that series as well, those influences probably spread to here. Thanks for the comment!
