Death of the Bounty Hunter by DrewGreen Death of the Bounty Hunter by DrewGreen
Hey folks!

This past weekend was the 25th anniversary of Nintendo's "Metroid" series of video games, one of my favorites. So naturally, I decided to do a tribute image. Nothing says "happy birthday" like drawing the thing you love being munched on by an energy-sucking parasite. Sorry, Samus!

Anyway, enjoy.

~Drew

Amazing art for a  amazing game. Used to play it a lot on the NES in my youth. Programmed by one person during a summer. Time sure has chanced.

Um...really? Did they provide a link back to my work? Was it in print or featured online? I never received any kind of notification.

I'd say "don't worry, she'll be okay!" But I feel a Game Over screen coming very soon.

It's alright. I think I can handle it. I love the expression on her face. Kudos to you for being able to portray loads of emotion through just the eyes. :)

Hey man, would you possibly be able to point me toward a the brush you used for this? I've been studying a lot of illustration lately, but haven't found any really good tutorials that talk specifically about picking brushes, and I haven't been able to get a good pastel or drybrush-like look such as this.

Thanks in advance, but no burden either way!
