Metroid Fusion: Samus by andarix Metroid Fusion: Samus by andarix
This commission took me about… 5 times the budgeted time should have allowed!

So the idea from the client was that in Metroid: Fusion, Samus’s biology is fused with that of a Metroid- so they wanted a take on what a hybrid Samus would look like. This was my take on it. I’d love to hear some feedback about it!

your idea's realistic. but according to the game over scenes she looks normal under the suit

Maybe in next game this would be happening.

I wouldn't know, I've never played them.  
This was the client's idea to have a different version away from what the game said.

whatever with my opinion though. yours seems more realistic since we barely see samus's face through through the game

I love it!

Keep in mind that she is also part chozo

Creepy, but awesome. Makes me wonder if she'll develop energy-sucking abilities in that form...

Yikes!  Talk about "Metroid: Fusion"...

(Fantastic work!)

Interesting idea, one I actually did an experiment with a few years ago.

I definitely like the eyes/bumps, but the fangs not so much. They might have worked better if you made it look like they were originally her canines, and had stretched out her mouth. Also the shoulders look absolutely massive because of the defined line at the bottom of them. IMO they would work much better with that line removed. I also like the Metroid gel headband. Small touches are the best.

Anyways, thanks for posting this. I've been meaning to go back to mine with my improved anatomy skills, so this is that nudge I needed. :D

Funny thing about the shoulders being massive, the client actually wanted them even bigger than this.
This is what we ended up settling on though.

now that's cool.

Wow great idea and the concept is well captured! Those cheek fangs look really painful! Both for her and for the victim! Those brow eyes are a great touch. This is definitely the perfect example of a Metroid/Human hybrid! Really great alternative take on the story! Gives it more an Alien/Starcraft feel.

Really Cool! I always wanted them to play up the Samus is the Metroid (Chosen Warrior) thing. Do you think the developers intended this from the start?

This is amazing, congratulations

I hadn't considered it to be like that O:

Neat as hell and very well done! But would not kiss/0...yeah.

This might actually be my favorite Metroid fan piece I've ever seen.
hort-wort Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013
Hhahaa, that's not quite the way I expected the fusion to go, but pretty cool. This is probably the only version of Samus I wouldn't want to kiss because she might suck out my lifeforce. Cool job!
