Hey man, I dig the realistic approach to this. Pretty unique stuff, but like its already been mentioned - the suit's dark lines clash a bit with the face.

Other than that, it's really fantastic!

I'm glad you like what I did with her face! And yeah, you're right, the lines and plasticness of her suit do clash, but I was having trouble with making it look right, so I just gave up and opted for this way, haha. Thanks a lot for faving this too :D

Love what you did with her hair. It looks much better than her normal style |D

Thank you! I thought I'd just give her a regular fringe/bangs style, to see if it suited her. And cos I did it in a realistic style, I thought maybe having shorter strands on the sides of her face would look a little more normal, hehe

There ya go! Nice :D

I think the dark lines in the suit are a little incompatible with the head though. And where's the emo fringe? :D

Thanks man :) Yeah, this one I wish I could fix up, but I tried to make ths suit match the tones of her face, but gave up and then a few weeks later thought, "screw it', and submitted it anyway, lol. I'm never good with colouring shiny things like her suit, and it looks so different cos I used Photoshop on it and Open Canvas on her face, and their brushes are pretty different, ah well.
Her emo fringe is gone in this one cos Samus ain't emo =p (but in actuality the picture I referenced had a girl with that straight fringe and I wanted to try and paint that kind of fringe.) I'm full of excuses for this pic, eh =p The only thing I like about it is her face.

Thank you mate :D I do too, I used a model's face as a reference, and changed bits of it, to give her a certain look that's pretty =p

Ack. Seperately, they would look great, but unfortunately you've done something that makes the head look as though you just stuck it onto the picture of a body.

I'm pretty sure it's the thickness of the lines. Did you draw these at different times (perhaps you only added the body now when you chose to put it up?)

Anyway, other than that, this is a nice piece. I like Samus' face, although I'm pretty sure she normally has a much sterner expression ;). Great job of the shading on the body part too.

I know what you mean, the suit I'm unhappy with, because I painted it with photoshop and the face with open canvas, and it looks false. I painted the face first and then the body second, after I couldn't find the right way to texture the suit to go with the face. :(
Yeah, she'd be more sterner, but I wanted to try a diffrent facial angle by using a picture of a girl, and the photo I used, the girl was smiling. It was pretty much an experiment with painting, the subject of Samus wasn't really the main idea, she was just in my mind for the subject =p
Thanks for commenting :)

I think it's kind of interesting to see how soft the work is on her face, and her body seems really harsh and hard.

Guess that's what it's like when you're... a... bot? :P

it's cos I suck and can't paint a suit, she's not a robot, she's human but I can't paint a suit properly with the brushes I used :( I did her face with open canvas, and her suit with photoshop airbrushes, that's why it looks different. I didn't wanna submit this til now, in the end I thought, what the hell, might as well lol
Thanks for commenting babybum :)

Why not just use the simple hard round brush in Photoshop? :)

bratchny Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2008
Cos it didn't look right. Even lowering the opacity doesn't make it look similar to the open canva's pen brush. Ah well.

*bap* Samus isn't a bot, she just wears a suit! XD. Good observation on the shading though, maybe that's what I don't like...
