NES All Stars: Samus Aran by Deimos-Remus NES All Stars: Samus Aran by Deimos-Remus
Haha, I just really like drawing retro Samus. I started this one as an idea to draw a few of the most celebrated NES characters in a group, and I may still finish it.

This is once again, inspired by Dave Stevens, an awesome comic artist.

Wanted to keep it simple, and very retro looking, which explains the half-tone.

You have GOT to tell me how you did that grain effect overlaying the artwork! It perfectly re-creates the feel that you're looking at video game cover art, or a Nintendo Power magazine! I love this so much!!

Sorry for the late reply, there's been a lot of buried comments in my inbox! 

I think for this one, I just made a new layer in photoshop, filled it with white, and used the 'color halftone' filter with a small dot radius, and set that layer to multiply. Hope this helps! Thanks a ton!

Now this the Samus I love to see. I love Retro Samus infinitely more then her later designs and especially Zero Suit version that make her way too skinny and curvy.

Glad to hear! Same here, I don't totally mind the zero-suit direction, but it's just too generic in design above everything else.

I had known since it was so engrained into videogame pop culture, but I almost wish I was there back in '86 for the big reveal!

Same~ x3

I myself wish I could afford to go to Hope British Columbia, to see the filming locations for "Rambo: First Blood" c:

Or go back in time and try out the Mechwarrior battle pods in that one place in Chicago before they took those out. .w.

But here I am, in modern day, still trying to convince people that the ending to Mass Effect 3 wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. x3

Now that is how Samus would look, if I was producing a Captain N series. Good work!

I love seeing pictures if artwork with awesomely detailed armor and super awesome shading, and all that, but this is just amazing. It makes it feel so much like the original game in such an awesome piece of work. Great work!!
