Beacon in the Pitch by AaronRhyneHendren Beacon in the Pitch by AaronRhyneHendren
Without further adieu, I present my first Metroid fan piece! :la:
This project was a huge blast for me! :boogie:

For those who don't know, this the end of Metroid II: Return of Samus. Go play it if you're a Metroid fan and haven't yet. :nod:

I took some design cues from various games in the series regarding her suit and anatomy of the hatchling.

This took me a few weeks, having only worked on it in any spare time I had in my dayjob schedule. But, I'd say it would have only been a few days without any interference.

:wave:
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE IN ADVANCE for adding this piece to their favorites/collections, and leaving comments! I know some deviants don't like to be thanked for such things, so I'll just leave this here so I don't impose on any profile pages.
I've never had this much attention this quickly on anything I've submitted before, so to be honest it's a little overwhelming, but certainly welcome, and I appreciate all the compliments and discussions I've had! :la:

Definitely looks like the Prime 1 Varia and the baby looks like a miniroid from Corruption. :)

This is why love your awesome. :love:

While I did try to recreate the old 90's Varia design for this, I absolutely took cues from the prime series, like the lights, and blade structures on the shoulders. Those things, with the Miniroids, was my way of bringing parts of the Metroid verse together. :D

I'm so happy you enjoy this, PhazeE. It's still my favorite of my pieces.

Thanks again, PhazeE. :love:
They are amazing, aren't they! :la:
I still think Super Metroid remains the quintessential game in the series, but I love everything they brought to the verse with the Primes.
How 'bout that tease at the end of Corruption? Think that's a hint of what's to come...? :D
There's also that dreadful Pirate data scan on the Homeworld... We shall see. We shall see...
Ah yes. Your name is quite amazing! LOVE IT! :icondancinglaplz:

You're welcome! :) They sure are. Super is definitely a timeless classic, but the Primes just blew me away. :)

I hope there is more to come, for sure!

Dreadful...I see what ya did there! ;)

Thanks! :D Yours is pretty neat as well!
