Dead Meat by Zesiul Dead Meat by Zesiul
This is Metroid Fan Art for Phantoon from Super Metroid. This is actually one of the few Super Metroid bosses to make a return as of lately (2010 Other M) and I felt as if they really pushed his design away from what he was way back in the 90's. So I tried to stay away from the newer version and just render out the old as best I could. It was fun playing with the lower camera angle and multiple light setup. It turned out being one of the few Boss arts I've done that I am actually proud of!

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!

Sometimes change can be nice though. I liked how menacing it was in Other M, the helplessness of being out in space rather than on a planet contributed to the atmosphere, plus the creepy stalk eye was a nice attempt to keep it as creepy as it was back then, which can be harder high res.

Phantoon was one of the few redeeming features of Other M.

I always liked Phantoon, so this is a real joy and surprise to see. I guess I liked that "eyeball in the mouth" design- and he was a ghost. Very nice job!

Super Metroid came out in the early 90s.

Second of all, I didn't mind his new design in Other M. They made use of his tentacles, rather than have them dangle about uselessly.

Great picture! :XD:

Thanks for catching that error.

And by design I simply ment the character itself. They changed his look. And here that was what I tried to maintain.

Thank you.
