Mother Knows Best by Zesiul Mother Knows Best by Zesiul
Super Metroid fan art of Samus' final fight against the great and powerful Mother Brain.


It's a piece I did way back in 2009 that I wanted to rework. This time I spent 20 hours over the course of a week, last time I spent months. If you want to see the comparison go check it out bellow.

I always thought that a more feminine looking Mother Brain would have looked better, feminine, but not sexualized. I think this picture captures that well. Her pose and her height compared to Aran's definitely suggest something of a mother-daughter relationship, which I've always thought was a subtle tone for the Metroid series in general. This is a great work; it should get a DD in my opinion.

DETIROVAF!

If you ask me, maybe this should've been MB's true form at the end of Metroid Other M. It would have been better in Other M if you fought an actual incarnation of Mother Brain. The whole Melissa Bergman identity she had could've been MB's human form, but then latter on she sheds her human form and transforms into this to fight Samus as Mother Brain for a third time. Your drawing could be MB's battle form aka Mother Brain's third evolved form.

I'm not sure if a Mother Brain with cleavage is less or more horrifying, but either way, this is one intense picture.

Ah, so you went with the gravity suit. I'm doing a comic in which Samus is in the Varia suit, but I'm going to have to add the G Suit into it. Thanks for the inspiration!

It felt right, I like to stay true to the original material and still have some creative input here and there. At first I painted her in the normal Varia suit, but it felt out of place. Plus with the gravity suit I could have a purple glow to her that helped the character pop more and improve the piece just a bit composition wise.

I see what you mean; the gravity suit doesn't camouflage with the background.

Sorry but there currently is nowhere in which you can get a print of this. I've never done any print work before, and I'm sure there might be some copyright issues with me doing so. But hey, feel free to print it on your own. I left it at a pretty decent size.
