Rockicks by Robaato Rockicks by Robaato
I was originally going to find some time to draw new Zero Suit Samus after the Smash Direct, but since :iconoh8: posted a really fuggin' awesome shoe compilation yesterday, I was inspired to make my own rocket-powered kicks for her.

I don't mind the official heels btw.

I love this take on the boots, but I have to call out the people that are against the heels because they think they're sexist.  I'm starting a challenge on my DA journal that I think will communicate that there is nothing wrong with high heeled rocket boots when enough sci-fi is applied.

After reading so many comments, I'm pretty sure I may be the only one who likes Zero Suit's redesign.
I don't really care about the heels. He said some form of rocket shoes and I was on board.
Peeps are looking far too into her redesign. I don't think it should matter, seeing as no one really gets to see Zero Suit in her actual games, besides like a few cutscenes in Other M which was pretty bad. And the ending of a few 8 bit games to which, who could really tell?
Was she muscular? Was she tall? I say who cares. Her look will change constantly change. It's not even like it's a drastic change either. They just gave her some boots.

Nice work on the art and everything though, Rockicks. Really amazing.

Honestly when I first saw this I thought "Damn, this is the best design of Samus I've ever seen", and I couldn't understand all the hate.

Awesome job portraying Samus's strength and beauty in this scene.  As usual, you have awesome attention to detail, and the palette is well executed.  Plus, good job repeating Samus's diagonal pose in the background through the stripes or rays of light.  Keep up the good work!Clap
