I've been wanting to draw a zebesian for a while, so after several failed attempts I finally finished one. I was trying to make him look sort of like the ones from super metroid but for some reason I coloured him somewhat similar to the pirates from fusion. I also wanted to make it look like the shell of his skull is translucent so you could kinda see his brain underneath.
I recently attempted to beat metroid zero mission on hard mode with less than 15% of the items, it's the only way to get the final gallery image. I just barely made it, by the end the black zebesians become your worst nightmare.
