Metroid - Samus Aran Cartoon by KimiSz Metroid - Samus Aran Cartoon by KimiSz
Another themed cartoon I made this week! For those not familiar with her, she is Samus Aran, the female protagonist of the "Metroid" franchise for Nintendo systems.

My childhood was marked mostly by Super NES games, and one of the first that I got my hands on was Super Metroid, one of the best games ever made IMHO. So I decided to pay a little homage to Samus in a cartoony style within a very basic scene lol.

Fanart painted in Photoshop CS4 with a Wacom Cintiq 12WX Tablet.

Metroid and Samus Aran belongs to Nintendo.

Hehehe, de fato, mas ultimamente vejo poucos trabalhos que são mais próximos da disney. O DA agora está inundado por anime e mangá hahaha!

kkkkk eu até gosto do estilo mangá, principalmente o realista. Mas realmente o DA já tá muito saturado. To querendo tentar um estilo cartoon tbm, tipo o do UP.

Ah eu também gosto de mangá sim, mas gosto dos mangás em que os caras estudaram para chegar em um estilo próprio. Muita coisa do que vejo aqui é do pessoal que está começando e começa pelo mangá então a coisa não vai para frente pois nunca se deve começar com algo estilizado :P

Cartoon vejo poucos ultimamente mas acho bem legal também, tanto que vira e mexe eu rabisco uns. Vale a pena sim!

Po os mangakás q eu gosto muito sao Takehiko Inoue (Vagabond), Takeshi Obata (Death Note) e Atsushi Okubo (Soul eater). Sem contar o Tetsuya Nomura do Final Fantasy.
É mesmo, eu começei pelo mangá, ai o traço sempre ficava parecido com o do artista q eu usava como referencia. E era um sufoco pra conseguir sair do estilo.

Eu to estudando um pouco a estrutura do cartoon. Quero ver se consigo fazer antes de março.

É eu também sofri essa fase de começar pelo mangá, viciei o traço, travei meu trabalho e depois de uns anos e precisei correr atrás de estudo mais realista e acadêmico para poder seguir em frente. Realmente é bem normal começar com mangá, é bem acessivel e aparentemente fácil de fazer, mas o pessoal não sabe que pros mangakás chegarem naquele nível eles tiveram de ralar muito e estudar mais ainda XD~

Legal cara, cartoon é bem legal de se estudar também, vira e mexe eu rabisco algum cartoon no meu sketchbook fora os que eu eventualmente posto aqui. Gosto bastante, mas nunca deixo de estudar o realista também hehehe.
