Concept artist Ian Baker has been working on something on the side for a little while now: a personal redesign of the Metroid universe, focusing mostly on Samus but also touching on a few bad guys as well. The look is a lot more organic, and I am very into it.

I love how Samus’ Zero Suit ideas now look like practical space outfits instead of cosplay templates, and how the Fusion Suit now looks a lot more alien, like it should.

You can see more of Barker’s work at his ArtStation page.
