Phantasmic Fiend - Phantoon- by AetherEch0s Phantasmic Fiend - Phantoon- by AetherEch0s
Contest entry for metroid-club [link]

Phantoon is a Super Metroid boss found in the Wrecked Ship. It is a supernatural ghost entity that is intangible and invulnerable except for its single eye. It is this eye that, when open, serves as its connection to the material world and can be damaged.

-all rights of Samus, Phantoon and the Metroid series are reserved to Nintendo-

I like it. That thing vs. Samus with those nice blue flames--gotta love this. My fave thing about this art is the great blue flames and the awesome appearance of Phantoon. Phantoon is so detailed, the pose fits so well, and the blue flames are frikin gorgeous. What can I say? This one is awesome, nicely done. An instant fave, to be certain. I'll bet this would make a sick wallpaper.

just wish i put more time into Samus, if you look real close she is really just thrown together. I rushed her into the picture so i could submit it to a contest.

But if you dont zoom in, you really dont notice it lol

I noticed, but I was focused more on the boss and the fire.
But yeah, I'd revise it if time permits.
It's on the borderline of being perfect...

yeah, it would be as simple as covering her up with a piece of the floor and bluring the edges. Then id just have to draw her in and spend more time on the detail.

I'm not really an artist, just a critic on this site, but...that doesn't sound too hard--@ any rate, I think that it would be worth it.

yeah. theres something in one of the vidoes that looks kinda like him. hopefully Kraid, Crocomire and Draygon are back too. It would be cool if all the bosses in Other M are reimaginings of old bosses.

Pretty cool! Seemed to pay plenty of attention to Phantoon, though Samus looks kinda stiff for a pose with that hulking thing looming over.

Still, pretty cool.

yeah i kinda threw samus in there as an afterthought. i originally planned to have her in there, but as i finished it, i decided to leave her out, then when finished i figured whatever il put her in. by that time i was tired of working on it and just rushed it.

AetherEch0s Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, but the green one is the easy one O.o
you just let him grab you then grapple to one of the turrets or whatever on the sides of the room and it electrocutes him. it almost kills you too, so you have to make sure you have plenty of hp when you do it.

It's been awhile since I played that game. But remember him being very difficult for me. I was like younger when played it alright? xD

lol ok then. The only boss on any Metroid game that i really have trouble with is the last time you fight Ridley in Super Metroid. Even if you use every powerbomb that you have on him at the start of the match it still takes forever and he does way too much damage.

Whoa! That looks awesome! I was thinking about doing a entry using Phantoon, but I'm planning to do something different. You did Phantoon way more better than me. Awesome job! Good luck in the contest.

Planning on the Essence of Metroid Prime. That's the plan. You did Phantoon WAY better than me. Did you do the whole thing with paint, or something related to paint? It looks awesome!

:iconaetherech0s:
AetherEch0s Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i did it on Photoshop. Took about 4-10 hours i think.
from the beginning i was planning on doing either Metroid Prime's core essense, Thardis, Phantoon, or the opening of Super Metroid where you walk into the room where the metroid is and Ridley's eyes light up before you fight him.

Dang! If I did something like that, it'd take me longer than that. With all that time and effort, it looks really good. It'd make a really good wallpaper. I'm not kidding, its that good!

Hmm. I see. I'm working on my pic and the only thing that makes Samus there is that her arm cannon is shown, that's it of Samus I managed to draw. I can't draw her in her power suit, but only that I was able to draw in. Its coming good though.
