MK Bounty - Princess Aran by HeartGear MK Bounty - Princess Aran by HeartGear
next [link]

Here's the finished version of [link] . Thanks a lot to [link] for her insightful tutorial. Throughout this piece I worked with color relativity and, towards the end, I was starting to develop some very nice techniques for implementing it.

Once again, I'm getting into a storyline that I likely can't continue. By the end I was really starting to plot out the entire arch: an alliance between villains, each taking on the other's rivals.

I'm sure you can see where this goes... Samus either being saved or breaking free and having to save Mario and company from Ridley, not to mention Metroids, but also trapped in the Damsel character. Princess Toadstool in the Power Suit and not knowing the first thing to do. Role reversals all around.

I did have a comic idea I thought up in highschool called RetroSpect, which involved these kinds of shenanigans. After my checklist of other items, perhaps I can return to this.

Best

Her getting umped, tied up and gagged reminded me of Sleeping Beauty's scene of Prince Philip being captured lol

Great comic :)

According to studies in the BDSM community, 89% of women enjoy submitting. Will Samus - like Carrie Fisher in the Slave Leia scene - come to enjoy her captivity, or will she - like Carrie Fisher due to all the fanboys' response to the Slave Leia scene - never get over her apprehension and fear (a very real possibility)?

In any case, what unfolds is a very clever approach to a comic/video game! <3

Samus makes a lovely princess but what's better is this scenario. A prolonged fight followed tie up. Perfect

And so it begins.

Sometime tells me Samus is gonna wish she had had a drink of water before this as I feel she's gonna have that gag over / in her mouth for quite a while.

I love this series... but I still have to do a disconnect from the games something severe to buy the story.

Those ropes wouldn't hold someone who has strength in the 80 ton class. :P

To be frank, what I'm most impressed with is how flawlessly you illustrated that brawl between Samus and the Koopas. There was a nice brief ebb and flow to it, and just the poses and stances were spot on in each shot. I've never seen a full fight scene illustrated so efficiently.

It reminds me of how people read "woman" used as a form of address in ancient texts (such as the Bible) and assume it was an insult...but it wasn't!
