[Samus stared at the canyon in front of her, filled with giant fungi and hungry metroids.  One word ran through her mind as the metroids shrieked and charged at her.
"... Ca-rap."]
Seriously.  I would have NIGHTMARES if I had to play through this scene.  I love METROID (Although I've only played the PRIMEs and OTHER M), but I absolutely despise the little demons themselves.  To me, the only good metroid, is the one on the other side of the door from me.  I especially get the creeps from the Phazon metroids in CORRUPTION.
But personal phobos aside, this little scene is inspiring.  I could probably write a whole story about this environment.  Keep up the great work.

Really captures a sense of wonder. Even if it fills me personally with a lot of dread. That's too many Metroids for me.

Very different. Quite interesting. Love the environment, the Metroids seem to fit in perfectly with all those shrooms. Colors are very pretty. There's a sense of wonder here yet extremely dangerous. Walls appear to be glittering with moisture, and its so humid here that you can see the updraft air currents. The Metroids look very active, thriving just as well as the mushrooms.

Very nice piece. I remember when I first encountered a scene similar to this (no metroids tho) in Prime. At the time I thought it was the most epic thing to ever be on a console ever. The environments had everything to do with what made that game great. You did an excellent job of capturing that awesomeness.

Makes me want to play some Metroid. I really wish they'd make a new handheld one. Might make me actually buy a 3DS.

Damn this is awesome, but I feel you could have made the colors more vibrant for a better contrast, and added more definition with your environment shading.
Samus and the metroids were perfect i.m.o.

Wow, this is really nice. The Metroids and Samus are spot on, and I like the close-up with her expression. The environment really gives off a 'Metroid series' vibe, but I can't place it. Is it from any particular game, or just made up at random?
