this is gorgeous!

Holy crap this is gorgeous. I love everything about it! Metroid Prime looks so menacing, yet at the same time Samus looks like no joke either! It all flows nicely and looks like it could have been concept art for the game before release!
My only criticism is that the Metroids are red, and the only red Metroids in the series are the Talon Metroids forced to adapt to Aetherian atmosphere and climates in Metroid Prime 2.

Anyone else think that this might actually be Mother Brain? I know she was turned to dust during Super Metroid, but Ridley's been killed tons of times and the Space Pirates always bring him back. Maybe they tried to clone Mother Brain from the dust, but while it brought back Mother Brain in mind, the new body degraded too quickly, and painfully, because of the damage the hyper-beam did to her DNA. So MB orders a new metroid body to be constructed for her and jumps into Project Prime the moment she hears Samus is in the system in fear. 

Sorry if that's too out there, but Metroid Prime always looked like Mother Brain to me in its final form.

Phazon Suit = Best Suit in Metroid next to the Light Suit. ;3

this is really cool.
Contraltissimo Featured By Owner May 16, 2013
Oh my gosh, this is beautiful.... that part in the game, that ending cinematic terrified me; I seriously jumped up and was like "SAMUS NO!!" :fear:

Very cool. :clap:
Sabretoontigers Featured By Owner May 16, 2013   Digital Artist
Thanks, I really liked the ending of this game, although that boss fight took me forever.
Contraltissimo Featured By Owner May 17, 2013
*lol* Me too. :laughing:
Dartmaul15 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013
Haha, yeah. it REALLY tests your combat endurance. Keeping dodging those attacks, while on the same time keeping the heat on the boss AND using the right kind of attack.

Trust me, that battle gets REALLY hairy on the hardest mode! And it's equaly fun when you manages to jsut time everything right
Contraltissimo Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013
It really does doesn't it! :laughing:

Agh, feels so good to beat the boss. :XD:
Dartmaul15 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013
Haha, yeah.

And then you dorps int othat last cave, all "hell naw. here we go again," and you starts shooting like crazy.
And when he finaly dies you're all like "sweet. he's dead. Finally!"

Best boss IMO

I'm yet to play Metroid Prime, and this is already awesome.
googletoper Featured By Owner May 22, 2013

LOL playing the metroid primes. raged at it so hard... haven't played or a while
X231 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
Holy fuck! (pardon my french) this has to be one of the best images involving Metroid Prime I have ever seen. The only thing that throws me off is the Arm cannon, but I digress. This is a totally epic image with the BEST RENDER of the Core Essence of Metroid Prime I have ever seen. Overall, I love it.
Sabretoontigers Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013   Digital Artist
Glad to know people like it. And Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it.

Those infinitely-respawning metroids...
they made it nigh-impossible to make it through that last area without losing any health...
Sabretoontigers Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013   Digital Artist
I know what you mean. It took me a while to get through that last area.
Arcane-Boomeus Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Student Writer
And I wasted all that time getting the flamethrower charge combo, only to realize that the plasma beam was a one-shot kill on pretty much everything, had longer range, and DIDN'T use up all of my missiles.
lavulwraith Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013
I love the lighting and detail in this. The sheen on the Phazon Suit makes it look even more awesome than it does in-game, and the attention to detail and the way each light has it's own glow is pretty awesome. Shame you didn't do the same for the arm cannon, it looks a bit off, but it's still more than excusable. The transparency effects on Prime and it's brood and the details on the neurons and such are also exceedingly cool.
Sabretoontigers Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013   Digital Artist
Thanks a lot for the feedback, I'm still learning a lot about digital painting so hopefully my stuff will keep improving. Painting realistic things isn't my strong suit, I'm trying to find a happy medium of painting things in a more cartoon type way, and this Metroid pic was one of my first attempts. But I'm glad you like it, thanks for the comment.
SocQA Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Wonderful artwork. The composition with Metroid Prime holding Samus is a nice idea. The lighting are really great like Hunter-Wolf said. Great work!
