Super Metroid. 2017. Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Although vaguely familiar with the character, I never played Super Metroid as a kid. I found as much sweet, sweet 90s illustration as I could, and tried to channel the style, while making it my own.

It was inked with a Pentel Pocket Brush and painted with Holbein watercolors on Fabriano Watercolor Block (with touches of Holbein white gouache). Total time, including research, was 4 hours.

Anyone know the artist?
