The lighting is most certainly the best part of this, and makes it truly stand out from the rest of your work. I'd love to see more moments like this :)

Awww, it's cute till the metroid suddenly latches onto her, sucking, "schlorp schlorp sscchhhllorrrp".

I was listening to "Eighty-Five Dead" from the Battlestar Galactica soundtrack when I saw this. It just seemed to fit so perfectly. Try it yourself.

To me it seems like Samus is trying to tell the infant metroid that she's sorry for killing it's mother, and for almost becoming like Ridley, the same monster that did the same thing to Samus's Home planet, K-2L, and is taking responsibility for it's care and well being, even though she epicly FAILS at it in Super Metroid

Still I like the Pic because it shows that she isn't a heartless killing machine(then again she never was)

There is a lot of emotion in this, even though it's very limited on colors. I am very impressed. :)

What was the hardest thing about this one, would you say?

polarityplus Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012
For this it was working using light on dark. Usually it's the other way round for me ie: adding tones to a white page :)

dude I have to say. your style is really starting to changed. in a good way :D simple yet catchy with the choice of colors. also the way the picture uses the emotion gotta say man after the last few months seeing you paint faces I can see a lot of changes dude.

keep bossing over stuff man. peace!!!

Change is always good, though it means I'll be stressing on and off about not having a style lol:)

Zantetsuken15 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012  Student General Artist
likewise dude. whether a style is there or not putting the time to make art and participation is always fun. just not doing it just means hindered in anything that someone does.

after all stressing isn't all that bad right?
