Here’s a piece I created for Gallery 33’s upcoming video game boss/final level show, which opens February 14th! Go check it out if you’re in the area.

I’ve always been a huge metroid fan, and drawing samus is actually how I got into drawing in the first place. Composing ridley was super nerve racking, his body is so spindly and weird, but I’m happy with how it turned out!

Badass in Distress: Doing it the right way

sparkylurkdragon:

Mmm, I feel like chewing on Other M again. Let’s talk about how to set up your protagonist being rescued without making her look like a dumbass.

Now, Samus has actually been rescued by people at least twice before Other M: once in canon in Metroid Prime 3, and once in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Both scenes are done much better than the infamous Other M Ridley scene. And, in fact, both scenes do also involve Ridley, too.

I’m going to let the Other M scene more or less speak for itself this time. It’s been analyzed to death, and may we whip the corpse forevermore, but I want to talk more today about why the other two scenes worked than about why this one failed.

do you ever just hate a bad guy so much you literally yell at the screen 

“YOU LITTLE SHIT”

and then you sit back and realize

wow they’re meant to be hated they’re doing their job good, well done wow what a good bad guy to actually incite hate rather than pity and make you want to beat them for reals no backsies

and then you love that character because they’re a little shit but they’re a good character
