Oh god no don’t link to my dA account, all of those drawings (and many many more) can be found under the Mushi Cure Magika tag on my blog. My dA hasn’t been updated since I was in highschool, it’s good as dead.
Nintendo gave Samus neon urine yellow high heel jet boots and supermodel make-up and a boob job, so I decided to try my hand at taking my own Samus design and adapting it for something a little Smash Bros-friendly.
I wanted to play with the idea of “exposure,” a gameplay concept introduced at the tail end of Zero Mission, where Samus invades a Space Pirate ship sans Power Suit, and has since been used as a means of sexualizing the character — what once was a testament to her ability to work under difficult circumstances quickly became a symbol of emotional fragility and “nakedness,” which I never felt befit such a character.
Rather, I went more the “exposed circuitry” route with this, not dissimilar to Iron Man and his more incomplete rigs. Everything is relatively makeshift, looking like it’s part of a greater whole which was never completed. I abandoned the whip (because it was stupid), made her boots look less stiletto and more “bipedal nuclear tank,” and give it all a color scheme reminiscent of her traditional Power Suit.
In a perfect world… I still wouldn’t have a chance at designing Samus on an official capacity! But it’s a lot of fun thinking about “what-ifs,” and even more fun taking frustrations I have with Metroid’s creators and channeling them as something like this.
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME OMGGGGGG
