"Artist Ryo Iwai has been creating awesome video game art pieces for years now, but today might be his best work yet with his drawing of Samus Aran from Metroid fame."
Wow that's definitely some of the best Metroid fan art I've ever seen!
Best ever, add one Agree!
Someone please give me a bucket......I'm drooling in love here!
Holy eff that's bonkers good!
I think that Kelly Kelly would make a great "REAL" Samus Aran if there ever was a life action film. (My name's Kelly too, does that make me an impartial pick.=?)
I really like the suit in this piece. Most of the Samus art online is just a liiiiiittle off from how she really looks but this one is spot on perfect imo.
This is the most "full of win" art ever. To KornChildz: nice find!
And that's why I tell me friends that Samus Aran is the hottest videogame heroine there is. If there's ever any doubt just check her out in the Zero Suit. =)
I'm going to have to go with Mai from SNK's fighting series but Metroid is pretty hot.
As a girl gamer, I'm going to go with Chun Li from SF. Maybe cause I'm mostly asian but Chunners is classy nonetheless! Haha anyways pretty rad art.
last week i saw some pretty stunning artwork of pokemon and now this? videogames + art = beauty!
Yeah this site is getting better and better thanks to nice artwork like this popping up. Beatufil work to the artist.
The attention to detail is stunning!!!!
I seriously do hope that Ryo makes a Master Chief like this. Metroid (Samus) is cool but Master Chief is my favorite videogame hero of all time and any kind of artwork I love to save. Some fan art I've even taken to Kinkos and had printed out in high quality and put on foamcore and have it on my walls. Pleeeeease Ryo!
Gears of War > Halo...jk (well not really but not trying to start a flame war). Maybe Ryo can do the GOW team too.
Mmmm it's definitely up there but there is a lot of nice fan art that exists of her.
A note to the author if it ever reaches him: please continue and do some sort of anime character next. Your ability is really amazing and is professional. This makes me wish I could draw so badly so please take what skill you have and run wild with it. Post it here on Animeshinbun so we can all appreciate it. Might I suggest Goku from DBZ yet? He's so iconic that I think it'd be fitting.
Talk about an epic piece of art! I remember a certain war-torn Samus a few years ago that I liked and this is the same thing. Not the same picture but I mean the same high quality art that shows why Samus is such a dynamic hero.
That beaten down and bruised Samus Aran just felt epic, plain and simple. That definitely was a wallpaper on my computer for a good three months and I think this one is probably equally as good. Maybe if the artist drew something in the background it might have felt more "epic" but I dunno, still nice.
Very nice details, but in my opinion the face is not pretty.
Her face isn't really the "cute" Samus look but I think she's still sexy. I agree 100% with you on the detail though!
I agree. Solid detail but the face just isn't the same hot look as in the Prime series of Samus or the even better (face only not game) Other M look of her.
Yeah, did you watch the ending in Other M? I fell in love in a second:)
Yeah I saw the ending and thought she was the prettiest ever at that point!
Do you know if there's a poster out there with that scene from her ending? I wouldn't mind that hanging on my wall. =) I found some wallpapers which are fan made but good nonethless but haven't fount any official posters..
Ok I now looked at the larger image and I appreciate the attention to detail more than before; it is a sick drawing!
