My picture of Samus Aran from the classic Super Metroid (best game ever!) landing on the surface of planet Zebes in search of the last metroid.
To me Zebes is the most interesting fictional planet ever thought up, which is kind of weird seeing as how its from an old 2D video game and not a book or a movie.
I tried hard to make it look very dark and mysterious, with plenty of acid rain. If you look closely in the backgound you can see the wrecked ship as well as some ancient chozo ruins concealed in the shadows of the mountain.
For reference I used the map from the Super Metroid manual, the official concept art, and of course the actual sequence in the game. I followed the design of the ship almost exactly from Nintendo's artwork to make it look just as it looks in the game (I know that the orange hatch glow was only in the prime series, but I added it here to because I think it looks awesome).
It would be a dream come true to explore Zebes in 3D in a future metroid game. Maybe some day...
Hope you like it!
