Searching for monsters by Zesiul Searching for monsters by Zesiul
The next installment in my Metroid boss collection, Draygon!. This one I had a pivotal idea. "Maybe they should have more of a story." So now I'm considering going back and redoing the last two. But I also have a couple more I'd love to do. So stay tuned! See what comes next :D

((Who else thinks that Draygon, no matter what, is #ButtUgly like there's no tomorrow?))

You know what I really hate. Draygon... he's right behind me isn't he?

That thing has no fewer than three faces. o_o

Oh well, Samie can take it.  Awesome piece.

Love this! I would really love to use this as a background, but am pretty sure having Draygon in the background would scare me half to death every time I saw my desktop. Any way we could get one with just Samus? If not, it's TOTALLY FINE and still amazing.

You can always edit him out on your own. I painted this one on one layer so it's not like I could just remove Draygon all willy nilly.

Ah, my mistake, I'm not super familiar with the process, so I hope I didn't sound rude! It's still an awesome picture!
Zesiul Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013
Oh no, it's a completely fine question. Sorry it's not the answer you wanted though!

The first time I played Super Metroid, Draygon near scared the fertilizer out of me. I have this odd fear of sea monsters, and Draygon is...well, not only swoops at you out of nowhere, but is just plain scary looking.

Well done ^_^

The picture is great, but... why is she not using the gravity suit ? '-' ... i mean... draygon is a water creature...
Zesiul Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013
Hah, I figured someone might mention that. Well the simple fact is that I did do a version with the gravity suit and it change the composition and emphasis on Samus so much that the entire mood shifted. Orange over blue just popped better and upheld the fear of being alone. So basically, the purple went against the piece. I definitely am all about continuity. But in this one I didn't think it was worth what it took away. Cheers for noticing.

Funny you had that experience -- it's exactly what happened when they were making Other M. They changed the gravity effect to a purple glow instead of a permanent colour change because it didn't look right in serious scenes. There's an interview where the visual designer explains this, complete with eel sauce metaphor.

Always will like the REAL gravity suit better...

Felt like you became one with the environment. Like you knew what you were doing by that point and had to work with it, instead of against the planet. You grew.

You don't really earn anything in Other M... But I just always liked finding the stuff on my own rather then just having it all and asking to use it.

Wow, this looks incredible!

I love the perspective. Draygon looks especially menacing and freaky...
and the poses and the way the lighting looks really bring the perspective
out and show it off. I love this.
