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.

it's not like she's blowing up planets herself

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.

She can be buddies with the Dirty Pair. They have an even worse track record of that :V
