My take on Apple's ads for the iPod (which is the best music player so buy one now, just not the mini) featuring Nintendo's character Samus Aran, from the awesome Metroid series.
Enjoy.

Finally! I've been looking all over for an MP3 player that works with my Power Suit!

Wow! Samus Aran is incredible looking with an iPod! I own a 120 gig classic and it's the latest model with the latest software. I absolutely loved this pic. The colours are great and I love the text on the bottom. In my opinion this is one of the greatest deviations ever posted on this website. This got an immediate favourite. Breathtaking piece.

I have the trilogy on one disc for the Wii. I love how Nintendo did something so wonderful like that. Echoes is good but I don't really like the ammo system.

nice jobs. if you want tips here they is lol:

copy the visor and the end of the arm cannon and place them aside.
monochrome the rest of her power suit.
replace the blank sections of the suit with the normal colored visor and cannon.
then make the iPod section. doing that would make it more dynamic in a way. the whole idea of black silhouettes with the white cords and device was the main idea but doing that way would show that the visor works together with the ipod in some way and the arm cannon part just to emphasize on how she still blows the crap off the hides of space pirates and then some.

try this in your spare time: use these tips and instead of putting the iPod in her hand put it on one of her shoulder pads (make it look built in) or on her chest plating. then with the visor still colored it looks like its connected to the pod. making sense? not telling you this so i can con you into making random art the way i want to see it lol i have my imagination for that :P im just giving you an idea incase you try again.

great job keep it up yeh!

Thanks for the tips...
However, I don't foresee this piece being revised anytime soon, since I made it so long ago.
I may make a new one in the future, perhaps using art from Echoes or Corruption.

very welcome

anywho id sugest corruption since theres a screenshot tool that comes with the game. if your ever able to take the picures off your tv (you cant really do anything with them other than save them to your Wii message board ><;) you could use those because you can get so many different poses that way. but then again there all ingame so its not just a still pic of Samus by herself XD

anywho good look! (i sugest Dark Samus though if you do another lol that would be pretty interesting)

Well, if I could get the screenshot tool (I'm not online at the moment, since there's no wifi in my dorm), I would use that. I'm pretty sure I can email them to myself from the Wii Message Board... the biggest problem I see (other than cutting the character out of the background) is that they might be fairly low resolution.

Sorry to burst your bubble but myself and SwiftSeraph (president/head spokesman of the Metroid Online map team) have tried to email them....they pretty much dont do anything...you cant really send Message Board pics anywere else besides friends message boards XP its a drag. but if you have some way of running the cable into a camra and out to the tv you may be able to take a shot of whats onscreen like that. there are some cables that allow you to split rca and go two ways with them at RadioShack which MAY help you go into a digicam....thats if you have the time though :P.
