Metroid- Samus Redesign by Hakuramen Metroid- Samus Redesign by Hakuramen
Samus Aran redesign 1.0
REDESIGN 2.0 here! :D [link]

The redesign is pretty drastic and I'm not sure how recognizable it is to the original. I tried keeping certain characteristics familiar. That said, I had fun drawing this anyways.

Some ideas:

-Slimmed down more feminine armor.
-Chozo styled armor: notice the bird-like helmet. I tried to retain that idea throughout.
-Hair streaming from the back of the helmet. I toyed with this idea and the potential of the hair transforming to a pair of "bird" wings. It may or may not be Samus's real hair underneath.

Much of this stems from my recent enthusiasm for all things Metroid: Metroid Other M updates sound pretty sweet, and I finally beat Metroid Prime I (o_0).

"And so it was when Samus Aran from that day started to mega evolve each time she confronted Ridley..." Pokeball :D (Big Grin) Clap

You mean she wasn't badass/capable enough in her original power suit? Haha. Thanks for the comment.

You're welcome :D (Big Grin)  I have nothing against Samus' original power suit, but your redesign is definitely more badass compared to it :) Of course she still would be capable taking down Ridley with her original suit, but just imagine how epic a battle between Samus and Ridley would look like if Samus wore your redesign instead of her normal, traditional suit ;) (Wink)

Fair enough. Ridley gets a lot of forms and variations. Why not Samus?

Well, fucknuggets! This looks pretty damn awesome! This would be incredible to see as an alternate costume for a next-gen Metroid game. Kinda reminds me of Megaman X for some reason. Wonderful concept!

I've gotten the MMX comments a lot. Considering I'm a big fan of that series as well, those influences probably spread to here. Thanks for the comment!

I LOVE this redesign...but there is just one problem with it. Most people do this, so I'm not blaming you!
"Boob Cups" (where the boobs are in individual metal cups) in armour is actually a bad idea, because of how hits the them redirect force. (I don't really want to yammer on about it unless you want me too. :D) Other than that little gripe, this is the best redesign of Samus I've ever seen...And one of the coolest, sleekist, and most badass looking ladies I've seen in a long time! Amazing job!
Seriously I LOVE this....would you consider doing some sort of wallpaper version? (As in, a version with a background or something, that would look good as a wallpaper?)

Thanks for the thoughtful comments! The "boob armor" criticism was mentioned several times before after I drew this, and I took those critiques to mind when I revised this design. :)

While it's not exactly a wallpaper, I did have a revised design here: deityofshadows.deviantart.com/… if you wanted to provide feedback on that version?

I'm not sure I have plans to do a wallpaper version of this design, but I'll keep your suggestion in mind. If you're interested, my Metroid gallery does have new Samus redesigns based off other game crossovers and the such. She just happens to be really fun to draw.

All in all, I really appreciate your feedback and critique, so thanks again! :D

Thanks for the critique. I tried to go for a blend between those two spectrums but I admit it might have veered more towards the "hot" side.

I think I happened to like armored hair (blame my Mega Man Zero fan-background if you will, haha) but I did try to make it practical here: the "hair" could assemble to futuristic wings to give flight to the wingless Chozo.

Noted and changed in the second redesign to a pair of thrusters ala space boots. It should be linked in the description.
