Samus Aran sprites by PrimeOp Samus Aran sprites by PrimeOp
I started with the basic armor but kept it close to that pose from the official artwork for Super Metroid because I knew I'd eventually sprite that version of the Varia. It was deceptively tough to sprite the tilted helmet on the Varia sprite.

The sprites' gallery page on my website has a "work progress" animation showing steps of my making the basic Power Suit.

A lot of practice, patience and visual reference!

Most of my pixel art ideas come from tinkering with Capcom sprites for a long time. I payed attention to the way they drew curves, different line angles, and stuff like that. There are a bunch of techniques that I use without really thinking about them, because I was trying to use that Capcom style when editing sprites, so I still use them with my scratch-made sprites.

I absolutely love Samus (moreso before the whole Zero Suit thing...) and the Suits you drew here are amazing, especially the fact that you used the classic artwork as reference.

Sold and sold. Not a palette swap to be seen, and perfect Nintendo-y background

I always know I've done a good job if you like it. I actually made a pal-swapped Varia for the original Metroid game, but left it out for this posting.

Man, some official Nintendo should see these pieces, made ​​by fans. They need to know what are the wishes of the public.

I just love that you made both of her suits, it just feels so cool to see Samus in this one style.

It's insanely rare to see the original Power Suit in anything now, so I felt like I had to start with that one. The fact that it's easier to sprite didn't hurt, either!
