Samus Aran and Varia by AxeL-FaR Samus Aran and Varia by AxeL-FaR
[EDIT 2]: This is old, 2012, but is the most popular piece of my gallery, for that i am leaving it in the featured folder and have plans to redo it some day.
A Metroid Fanart for a Facebook Group Conquest.
I made in a hurry due to deadline, and ended up not going exactly as I wanted T.T
But at least I managed to finish on time ^^

I wonder how does she fiit her shoulder joints in her suit, i know she's quite flexible but...look at those gaps D:
and how does she "trigger" the arm cannon?, why isn't this wxplained canonically? D:

I'd say there's a lot of brain, innocence and beauty underneath that armor (and is still capable of kicking alien butts full-time :D). Samus has outclassed Iron Man in every way (except for the money stuff :D), I demand the producers stop stretching out the Iron Man series and start making a Metroid movie line, RIGHT. ABOUT. NOW.

brain and beauty, yes. innocence? HELL NO! This is Samus we're talking about here!
Unless you mean her social skills, which are a bit lacking.

Well, i think interplanetary money is worth more than dollars, those bounties aren't that easy to get :V

P.S: Luka is cute <3

It's hard to believe someone that cute and innocent looking is under that suit. Looking at Samus here I'd like to take her out for dinner and get her a nice sexy dress than hire her for a dangerous mission. I think I'd hire her unsuited self out for a date anyway from the way you drew her.

The galaxy can wait this cutey is coming home with me tonight and no Chozo armor allowed to wreck up the evening lol

I like how ladylike you make her look. I've thought of her civil self kind of feminine (though not necessarily over the top), to contrast with her galaxy-saver persona.

You know, since Samus in later games of the canon (Metroid II, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion with the exception of Other M) never depicted her in her Zero Suit in her endings, I have always thought that her Varia suit simply was a space suit similar to the Stormtrooper armour (or Master Chief's Spartan armour if you like). And I thought that her blue Zero suit was a separate suit.

I was literally shocked when I finally understood that Samus doesn't 'wear' her Varia suit in a normal way but that she conjures it through will(?) and that the suite easily can be shattered when Samus' concentration weakens.

Personally I don't like that idea. I prefer the Varia suit being a separate armour, like you have depicted.

Well done! :)

I don't like the "conjure suit" thing either. I'd rather see the physical armor roll up to her in Morph Ball, open out for Samus to step into, and fold into shape around her, Iron Man 2 style.

Maybe that could be the sequel to this fine artwork?

That could be. It would be very interesting! Please do the sequel if you have the time!

I would if I could a.) create an actual sequel, as I am not the artist (that would be *AxeL-FaR), and b.) if I could even draw worth a damn.

Whoops! ^^; I completely forgot that.

But it's actually nice that I'm not alone with the "anti-conjuring" idea. :)

You're not. A conjuration can be just as easily deconjured.

:iconasdjol:
asdjol Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013
Exactly! That's why I think the conjuration-idea is plain silly and not effective in the case of Samus Aran. I'm thinking of the scene where Samus met Ridley and got "spooked" in Other M.

Here are other examples: Batman could easily defeat Hal Jordan by exposing him to fear gas, like in Justice League Doom. And many Green Lanterns were killed by Parallax in the live-action movie just because they got scared.

I've always thought it's kinda weird how Samus's shoulder width (with out the suit) doesn't really meet up with shoulder width of her suit :P

Rocking pic though!

Yeah, me too! Don't make sense. And and her waist? has no way fit inside that armor, look at the waist of the armor. :omg:
And Thank you xD

quadren4 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yea! the waist of her armor is as small as a CD about to eaten by a bear. But I suppose we can't really question anything about her suit, seeing how she can TURN INTO A BALL HALF HER SIZE! Who knows what else happens in her suit! I wouldn't be surprised if one her upgrades was a smoothy maker (Heroes gotz to have dem smoothies too)!
And no problem :P

Nice. Samus can't "step out" of her suit like a lot of people think though - it's integrated with her DNA. ;)
