"My past is not a memory. It is a force at my back. It pushes and steers. I may not always like where it leads me, but like any story, the past needs resolution. What's past is prologue."
-Samus Aran

So this is an art nouveau inspired piece I decided to give it more of a comic book coloring style. Also please don't use my art work without my permission thank you

This is a very beautiful and well-designed piece. You've done a great job demonstrating Samus' strength and beauty through her simple pose and powerful stare. I also like how you are using the Beams' symbols as hieroglyphics on the columns in the lower half of the piece. I'm also enjoying the image of a Metroid in the rear center and the fact that its anatomy is composed of images of three of her greatest enemies, some of the abilities and weapons she uses throughout her missions, and an important item that serves, in my opinion, as the most powerful source that drives her to always be strong, courageous and understanding, whether she's alone or with others. The execution of the color palette and lighting is perfect and helps bring the purpose of this piece to the surface even more. Spectacular job!

I like the Art Nouveau styling in this and Samus herself looks great. Good color contrast too, she really stands out from the background.

As the critique rightfully says this is a very beautiful and well-designed artwork. Nice use of Samus and the characters. Also a wonderful idea to hint a metroid by aligning items, Samus' greatest enemies and forms. Thank you for sharing this with us!

I love it!! So amazing. I also really like how you added the different symbols/icons that represent each of Samus' different beams. <3

Your color selections are beautiful. Definitely above average. The background has plenty to look at, but the way it's muted keeps the focus on Samus.
Plus I love Art Nouveau, so double thumbs up!

Quite reminiscent of the simbolism within Metroid, particularly in relation with Samus' life and origins.

When and where did Samus use that quote, not recognizing something from my favorite character / favorite series is really bugging me.

Great work too.

Why is it that Kraid appears in only two games?? Mother Brain did appear in three, but Kraid was just too badass to keep out of Other M.

Can't punish them for it, though. Being about five hundred years old, Shakespeare' works are public domain.
