Metroid Samus Dissection

Metroid Samus Dissection
I've just been in the Los Angeles retro game gallery iam8bit's 10th Anniversary show. Jon asked me to create a new artwork for the show which being the gallery's 10th anniversary was going to be based on the classic subject of retro games. After much deliberation and discussion, I decided on making a piece inspired by Nintendo's Metroid. This is how I always imagined Samus's helmet should fit on (in a crazy robotic dressing machine style!) lots of swooshing, clicking and electro fusing! It made my brain hurt a little bit to work out how it could come apart but around Samus, but I think it would fit together (pretty much)!

Anyway the gallery opening looked like a lot of fun, and it's now available to buy from the webstore – 18 x 24 inch Giclée limited edition of 30 prints, so get them while they're hot.

Here are some close ups:
