Artist's Description

The original Metroid game was inspired from the 1979 film Alien. It had a female protagonist, one of the main bosses was called Ridley (the directors last name) and the levels, together with the whole game had a HR Giger feeling to them.

There are too many Samus representations out there showing her doing cool stuff in “WOW!” like angles. My idea here was to take her back to the NES side scrolling era, and instead of making here “cool” again, I would concentrate on the mood and the atmosphere.

I tried to recreate this mechanical and organical feeling of the levels, which is again, very HR Giger inspired. So I looked back to the original Alien movie and took Samus and put her in this dark, Prometheus-like environment.

I gave the suit a slightly feminine form to mark the fact that there is a women inside. She also looks a little extraterrestrial, kind of Xenomorphic.

The blue light in the background was made because i liked the thought that there were Ovomorphs (Alien eggs) laying there ready to hatch.
