Metroid: Tiny Survivor by Kelii Metroid: Tiny Survivor by Kelii
This picture was a fight from the very begining. It ranks as one of my hardest and most time consuming. I became obsessed with it. I thought about it nonstop. I daydreamed about it at work, and got yelled at by neglected customers.
It depics the scene in metroid where little Samus is found by the Chozo and is carried back with them. It didn't turn out exactly as I wanted. I wanted more rubble of the ruined earth colony, but for some reason the painting wouldn't allow that. I also wanted it 'feel' like the very first game, which I think it does quite nicely
It measures 11X14 on bristol board and done in my usual watercolor with colored pencil details.

So Nostalgic and Amazing, a reboot for this game is needed, If I seen this scene in the game, wouldn't be surprised at all.

Portrays the origins of Samus, particularly, the trauma she endured after losing her family and her distrust for people unknown alike.

This is by far my favorite Metroid piece I've found on deviant art. It gets into the story and not just the "coolness" of the game. Everything else is Samus fighting metroids or looking sexy, I love this so much better. The mythology in Metroid is my favorite thing about it. I'm not even a big gamer, but that game series is amazing! And this painting goes deeper into that world. Absolutely beautiful! Great work!

I remember seeing this piece years ago and having no idea what it was about and loving it.
Now that I've played through Zero Mission four years later.. wow. This is just so amazingly beautiful and touching. You did a wonderful job with this piece.

I saw this on Tumblr and immediately followed the link to you dA so I could leave you a comment, this piece is so touching and heartwarming! It really gives life to the games and to the story that isn't really explored much... fantastic work. :) I know it was submitted in 2006, but still. You're amazing <3

You know what would be a GREAT thing to do in a movie adaptation (or something that should have been in Other M)? During the space pirate raid, a Chozo warrior in power armor (similar to Samus' own) saves young Samus.

That's just a thought.
