Come and get it by Zesiul Come and get it by Zesiul
Here is my interpretation of Ridley's First Encounter in Super Metroid. It's the moments when he first arrives upon Ceres Station and takes the baby Metroid back to Mother Brain. There were no survivors and Samus herself barely made it out. Ridley commands an army and is extremely powerful and intelligent. For this illustration my main goal was to show his triumphant win over the space colony as he truly is a terror to all who appose. Not to mention one of my favorite bosses of all time. So this one I tried to pull off seamlessly, hope you all enjoy the outcome!

As for whats next, that is a good question. All these characters have been making me want to do an environment. So I may take a break of just stop the series here. If I continue then Mother Brain would be next. I do have some fun ideas for her first form, we'll see!

Thanks for looking! Check out my blog www.zesiul.blogspot.com for all the other bosses as well as sketches and proccess shots. I hope you enjoyed this and the others, cheers for looking!

The only parts of this image i don't like are his hands (need longer fingers and more visible claws - it makes him look more like a human, but Ridley is more like "looks like a mindless beast, but actually is intelligent") and teeth (look more like they are attached above his lips). Everything else is great!

Really like the explosions here and the green lighting on Ridley, which makes me realize the canister containing the Baby Metroid is causing that. Little touches like that really help to tell a story in the pic, great job =)

This is incredible work, I love your attention to detail. It looks like there's not one part of this entire picture that you didn't think through and work on thoroughly.

His eye is piercing. I feel like he's boring a hole right through me with his INSANELY menacing gaze...
