Samus Helmet

Samus Aran Helmet

I decided to continue the character skull theme, and one of the first ones I thought of was the iconic helmet of Samus Aran from the Metroid series. A couple months ago I drew an astronaut where you could see a skull through the reflection of the helmet, and originally I wanted it to be a broken helmet. So this was a sort of retry at that concept that I couldn’t quite make work. And I think it works here. Part of me wishes I made the crack bigger to show off more of the skull, but I think it’s enough that everyone should know what they are looking at. I also had fun with the shines and reflections across this helmet, which is something I like to focus on, and usually gets a nice compliment from my son. We shall see.
