Metroid Tribute by McQuade Metroid Tribute by McQuade
"Surprise, Surprise"

Created for the 3NES group show at the Bottleneck gallery. 3NES is a group art show organized by illustrator Chogrin Muñoz at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn featuring a variety of artwork honoring three of Nintendo’s most popular video games (Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid). I am super excited to be part of this show. I grew up playing these games, and had a blast bringing these to life.

The game that blew minds when it was discovered at the end that Samus was, in fact, a girl!

Available as a 13x19" Limited edition (85) giclée print, 300 gsm, archival inks. Check out detail and print shots at my website www.pjmcquade.com/139819/18070…

Now available for purchase through my Etsy store

Really awesome picture, but what's with the cat by Samus' foot, am I missing something?

It's a nod to Ripley from Alien, since she's the original female space alien butt kicker!

This is just one hell of a gorgeous composition, one of the nicest and best put together Metroid pieces I have ever had the pleasure of seeing! Your lining is so incredibly gorgeous and variations of color coded ones make everything so visually striking but soft and easy on the eyes at the same time that's so cool, all the colors go so well too nothing feels like it distracts you from anything else the whole thing's in perfect balance... THE GALAXY, IS AT PEACE... I think my favorite thing is how Mother Brain turned out, and I love your take on Kraid his face is super neat looking. What are the objects in the frame? I don't recognize them are they a sprite from the game?

Thank you so much!  That symbol appears on the back on Samus' blue jumpsuit :)
