SamusXRidley OTP by BoyFugly SamusXRidley OTP by BoyFugly
One of the most involved, trial-and-error pieces I've done in a long time. Tried a bunch of new techniques/a handful of new brushes and tools. Fun, and exhausting.

This one is kind of a secret free commission I sneaked in for a friend of mine. He kind of immediately pounced on it, but since he has the advantage of INSIDER CONNECTIONS I decided to secretly expand the list. Just, layers of Tom Clancy misdirection shit.

And since I've been wanting to do a piece of Samus fanart for awhile but for some reason never got around to it his request made an easy sell.

No matter how many times that scaly wretch shows up to cause trouble, leave it to Ms. Aran to put him back in his place: a scorched crater!

The title is quite funny, good show sir.

Ah man, I F-ing love this! And that is not usually a term I like to use! Seriously though, I think this captures EXACTLY who Samus is while showing in one image the relationship between her and Ridley.

Fantastic piece, man!

Badass. I like the composition-- with Ridley's wings dominating a majority of the picture and upper half, and then when you trail down to the body, you see he's actually getting dominated by Samus.

The symmetric and long vertical composition adds a sense of scale to this definitive battle, and Samus looks all the more badass because of it. Hmmm... is part of her shoulder armor torn off? I see what appears to be underlying armor that resembles an eyeball.

Nice job!

This is really quite wonderful. I especially love how you posed Ridley's wings. It definitely adds to make a very dramatic atmosphere, though I can't help but feel bad for Ridley. Getting a cannon to the neck/chest cannot be fun.

Just you wait a few months Samus and Ridley will be up on his feet, ready for another try.
Judging from the "impactish" landing in the picture, I'd say Samus has just gone air-rodeo on Ridley. :P

This is pretty cool man!

I think there's something missing though ~ perhaps some smoke to suggest impact? The reason I said this is that looking from the way Ridley's wings and tail are still suspended up in the air suggests that they just took that huge impact down from above.

Other than that all looks awesome :D

Excellent concept and execution. I like the way the wings draw the eye towards Samus, and how her helmet visor points down towards her executing blow. It's definitely a very powerful feeling piece, and really shows off the mercilessness of such a fight.

One thing I'd suggest, though (and while this might be more of a personal thing), is that the background looks kinda boring. The white fog just seems too neutral, and while the overall simplicity is good, it might have been more interesting to make a darker background, perhaps set in the mechanical bowels of a Space Pirate base or some massive volcanic tunnel. This painting has great intensity, but some of it is diminished by the overall white and gray of the background.

Regardless, it's still an excellent piece.

Yeah, I originally chose the background to be pretty sparse since this was supposed to be just a quick character commission, and backgrounds being my Achilles heel, I wanted to avoid doing something too experimental. But it ended up getting a lot more involved than I originally intended anyway, so maybe it was kind of moot!

If I had more time I might have experimented with atmosphere a bit more. I just kind of got an idea in my head for a desaturated piece with a splash of bright saturation and sort of ran with it, and ended up with mixed results.

Thanks a ton for the crit, though! I think the only reason this ended up anywhere near presentable was because artists more talented than I pretty much baby-walked me through it.
