Portfolio | Metroid by Ash Thorp
We already talked about Ash Thorp in a previous article about his creations around Star Wars. Today we are interested in his Metroid series. He made all his creations based on his childhood memories of playing the game on Super NES: this feeling of frustration in front of the difficulty, the isolation of the heroine in these huge settings and facing the unknown.
I personally find that all these emotions are perfectly reflected in these five illustrations, giving an epic and almost terrifying side to this absolutely cult game.
