Not sure if messy or painterly. Probably a lot more of the former.

So, I've already talked a little bit about my fan-idea of who Samus is, but I think there's still a lot of room for quirks and faults and failures. Not only would she be conflicted between the Rage of losing her colony alongside the discipline and Spirituality raised from the Chozo (with explosions of either from time to time), but, yeah, I doubt she'd make any friends with environmentalists.

I find this utterly hilarious. Although the planets Samus destroyed were either that of evil creatures like the Space Pirates or Phaze, a Planet of corruption. I still think Environmentalists would make some stupid argument anyway, since those people are just a tad over the top. Don't get me wrong on saving environment though needs to be done, but the universe could do without Metroids, X-Parasites, Phazon and the Space Pirates. Mrchops makes a good point about Samus saving species that are not a threat to the universe though. A good example is the animals she saved on the space station in Metroid Fusion.
I wonder though, if the space pirates were gone completely, and the Metroids were hidden somewhere by Samus, would they still be a threat? Also any idea if Samus still has some percentage of Metroid DNA in her system after Fusion? I'm unsure exactly what merging with the SA-X at the end did other than restore the Ice Beam.

Technically speaking, killing Mother Brain starts the planet's self destruct sequence, so she didn't blow the planet up herslef.
HOWEVER, she DID kill every single Metroid in the universe (Metroid II), except for one, but that one got killed too (Super Metroid). So those people should be more angry about preserving species... just sayin... :)

Blowing up planets does tend to happen in SCI FI, however all the power to go faster than light and have big ion cannons leads to the power of being able to destroy planets.  A natural consequence as technology get more and more powerful.

True. They wouldn't take kindly to Samus exploding planets and wiping out entire species :/

I approve of Samus art. And yes she would probably not be friends with environmentalists. Although she does have a habit of saving cute fuzzy creatures.....also ostrich like things

I think the shading is good. Its a bit painter-ish. I think maybe the flat coloring on the background is throwing it off....maybe

It has always bothered me a bit, that she blows up planets so much. The galaxy is big, but life sustaining planets are still pretty rare.

Woah, Samus! Looks like some people don't like what your doing. Oh well, at least you don't really blow up planets, and laugh at blown up planets like Frieza does. You know, since it always looks like someone else sets a self destruct button.

Planet Zebes was a craphole when it was blown up... Acid rain, unstable tectonics, haunted wreckages, random acid pools, evil aliens everywhere... But it used to be nice! Friggin' Mother Brain...

oooh, don't forget how she pretty much wiped out the Metriod race as well, (unless you count your other piece with her aiding in their re-population XD heheheheh)

Just ignoring all those greenpeace humans for a sec....
One of the best things about living amongst aliens would be that you could prettymuch wear whatever you wanted, and no-one would know (or care) if you were decent (by the standards of your own culture) or not. I mean look at the bartender, are they naked? Would it bother us if they were? And they must think the same of us.

TL:DR since so many aliens apparently just walk around 100% naked, in time it would have a seriously liberating effect on our own standards of dress.

As much as I hate these groups, I kinda have to agree with there here. Blowing up planets is my most hated part of Sci-fi. Its disrespect at its fullest

I could be misremembering, but I don't think Samus intentionally destroyed the planet. I thought it was a self-destruct that her enemies put in place in case they ever failed.

I gave it thought after making the comment, you are right. Mother Brain activated a self destruct mechanism after her death. Yes.

Hehe, yeah - she's not exactly doing it on purpose, and the planets aren't exactly teeming with natural life, but planets do tend to blow up when she's around.

She's had a hand in destroying Phaaze, Zebes, SR388, and Dark Aether. That's a better track record than the Death Star!

She did blow up SR388 in manner that should be easily duplicated.

"More effective than the Death Star" is a pretty badass tag line.
