"Zero Light Suit" from Raydiant. One of my favorites, for more reasons than one. ENOUGH with the hyper-sexualization of Samus!! It totally contradicts her character!
It’s not hyper-sexualisation if it’s for art. She’s clearly s’posed to be something like an angel in this pic ‘cause zero suit light suit and a whole bunch of white. ENOUGH with the calling out people for shit that doesn’t need calling out. Samus traditional femininity is definitely part of her character idc what anyone says. The whole point of her being female is the big reveal at the end of the original game to break the stereotype lol you can’t erase that part of her.
You clearly misunderstood me… I like this piece because her female form isn’t the focus of the picture. There are too many pictures of Samus in her Zero Suit (and I am guilty of posting them) where the theme is sex appeal. It’s sophomoric fan service.
I don’t know what you mean by “traditional femininity.” The reason Samus is an amazing character is because she is not traditional. She’s not delicate and you aren’t drawn to her because of her tits. Samus is interesting because she’s a mysterious loner who fucks shit up.* She is the antithesis of “traditional femininity.” Men idolize her, and men aren’t used to idolizing women, they’re used to lusting after them.
Your post confuses me, and I think maybe you didn’t quite get what I was saying, but I feel we both agree that Samus’ character comes from her actions, not her looks.
If you are saying that Samus being sexy and Samus being strong are one in the same, then I’m afraid we couldn’t disagree more. =)
