Samus: A Girl and Her Gun by bratchny Samus: A Girl and Her Gun by bratchny
Here's another painting of Samus Aran from Nintendo's Metroid. She's got her gun that she uses in Metroid: Zero Mission, and in Super Smash Brothers Brawl (can't wait for that to come out here).

There's some things I'm not happy with in this, like the gun and her hands. They're hard to draw, of course, but I tried. Her gun-holding-hand is kinda crap too, but I used a stock photo reference to check, but the handle of the gun in the photo wasn't a thick one, so I had to guess what the hand would look like holding a thicker handle. Ah well :|
Pretty happy with the rest of it, though. Did more crazy colouring, it's fun, but I need to learn more about shadows and highlights. Guess it's more fun to be creative with that, though =p

Drawn in Open Canvas, coloured in Photoshop.
I hope you like this, thanks for checking it out. :D

Uhg. Samus is such an awesome female character. @__@ Great job on the pose and definately that gun. I can't draw weapons for diddly squat.

Lovely painting! that's a really pretty samus!!
If I had saw this before, I would include it in my Metroid Journal Feature!

Thank you soooo much for commenting and adding my Samus to your Metroid collection! I'm very happy that you like it! Your Samus costumes are very inspiring to me as an artist, you have put so much effort into making them, it's very encouraging to see someone who loves Metroid games use their creativity like you do :D
If you make another Metroid Journal Feature, I would really be thankful if you included my Samus picture in there. I am going to draw her again soon, and I'd love to use your photographs as references and inspiration! :D

Samus is awesomeness incarnate. I'm starting to develop schoolboy like excitement for Brawl :D

Me too, but I've never played a Smash Brothers game, but I'm told it's lots of fun, and a feast of button mashing with sweet attacks and stuff. So I think I'll really like it :D
Have you played Prime 3? And any other Primes? I loooove Prime 3. I beat it the other day, and I think I'll replay the end boss battle just for fun, it was grouse :D And I got the last missile expansion so now I have 100%, so I'll replay it for the special ending as well.

I dig Smash Bros even though it's not really my cup of tea. The 4 player mayhem is undeniably awesome.

I gots Prime 3 and have finished the first two. Only about half way through 3 at the moment... kinda got a little sidetracked and stalled. I think it was sidelined by Galaxy and now Zack and Wiki :D I'll get back to it some time.
