I love the Metroid series. Of course my favorite boss is always Ridley, in any of the games. He's such an iconic opponent, and I really enjoy the running conflict that Samus has with him. I feel that besides the Metroids themselves, Ridley could be considered Samus' arch-nemesis. Anyway, in this image I wanted to draw Samus beating the crap out of Ridley. I also wanted to show her using her light whip in a unique way, since I feel it's a rather under utilized tool that she has. Of course, she only uses it when she's in her zero suit. Speaking of which, the internet seems obsessed with images of Samus' armor being blown off. I wonder why?
Yeah, you show that over grown space pterodactyl who's boss. <3
