Samus Aran redesign 1.0
REDESIGN 2.0 here! [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.
-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).
