Samus wasn't always blonde wearing her Zero Suit, she had green hair and pink skin! Back in 1986, she was first thought of as a robotic dude, but when you beat the game, she was unveiled as a human woman. Best deception ever in a video game.
So, I thought I'd draw her in her original design. It was a lot of fun to draw her in a different way, with long, flowing green hair, the pink skin, and the hot pink 'Justin Bailey' body suit. I also added a little Metroid, as she's in Tourian (portrayed with the shitty job of using the 8-bit tiles, haha).
I didn't want to add the arm cannon, as it made her look weird, so I opted for a pistol thing. It can still shoot Metroids, and let's just say she also has missiles in there too.
I used this stock photo as a pose reference, from

Thanks a lot for looking.
