For you n00bs who don't know, this is Samus Aran, bounty hunter, universe-saving heroine and star of the Metroid videogame series. I am a hopeless Samus fanboy and love her with all my heart.
This took me almost ten hours straight to finish, but bloody hell was it worth it. Them atmospheric effects were a bugger to do, but in the end I'm really happy with the end result. Next time I'll probably exaggerate the suit's shape a bit more, but anywho. This is probably my best work to date, and I think I'll keep doing this type of cel shading for a while. Please comment! Thank you for existing.
