MDB Bestiary : Ridley by el-roacho MDB Bestiary : Ridley by el-roacho
Metroid Database Bestiary: [link]

I'm not going to post all of the entries I did for the Bestiary, and will probably space out the uploads. I'm still so pumped that I got to do one of the Ridley illustrations for it. I spent so much time on it, more than any of the other entries I did.

Hope you guys like it and click that link to check out all of the other stuff there! :D

I used this as a reference, [link], if that's okay with you. It's not a trace, even though it looks like it (not to sound obnoxious, that is). Still, I can take it down if you're not okay with it. :ashamed:

Hey! Thanks for asking - better late than never. Even if I agree with the commenter that said you should have asked first, I've sent you a note. We don't have to have this conversation publicly. :B

hey man, I know someone else did this already.

I too want this as a tattoo, however its intended for a back piece and needs some small modification, would you be cool if a friend of mine re-drew it for a better fitment and maybe pronounce the metroid baby a little more?

Unless you yourself could?

The artist is going to stretch the tail out a little bit so it can curl around my screw attack emblem XD

How would you feel if I used this for a tattoo? I'm still debating between several designs, but I really like this one!

Sure, if you'd like to. Wow, I'm super flattered that anyone would want something I drew tattooed on them. But yeah, go for it. If you decide on this one, I'd love to see how it turns out. :)

And thanks, I'm glad you like it!

It came out really good! It has a lot of action, and the shading is fantastic. I just hope that tattooist would be able to emulate it right. You'll definitely see it if I get it done. I'd be submitting it to the MDB gallery also :)

Ridley looks so f***ing awesome here! I also loved how you included the Metroid Hatchling.

I understand ya won't be postin' all entries ya did for Bestiary, but can you upload the Etecoons? It'd be a pleasure to my liking.

Hi there! Thank you! And thanks for asking first! I appreciate it. :) Normally, I'd say "Sure, go for it", but in this case it's already being used for the Bestiary on the Metroid Database. I'd kinda like it to stay exclusive to them, if it's alright.

However, if you don't need anything fancy, and really want something, send me a note. I'm short on time right now, but maybe we can work something out since I draw this guy a lot anyway. :B

Well, that's no problem! I just checked out the Bestiary, and it was beautiful... ;_;

I actually have an account on MDB, but it's hidden and I don't visit very often. I'm that Flame guy who promised to stay active and completely and utterly failed. xD

Aww, thanks! I might do, if I remember. I'm sorta bad at remembering, but I'll try. Although I hate to be a burden on people...

Aaah I'm completely going off topic here

It's nice to meet you, anyway! XD

:la: It will be such an honor to bring your image to life in 3D! I'm so excited!
I have drive to get my other one done so I can start up! Oh I haven't said anything about it yet because I'm still figuring it out, but there are holes in Omega's head, throat, and heart area for led lights! Yes his eyes are going to glow, and look like he's about to unleash fire. I'd love to do reproduce that effect in the next sculpt.
I will give all credit to you and the Metroid Bestiary. Heck, if you even like it enough all finished I'll send it to you! It is your design after all =D

One of videogaming's baddest space pterodactyl dragons. Such a classic scene too, good choice! The segmented tail and leathery wings look especially good.

On a side note, I was also jazzed to see you did the art for Crocomire as well!
