How to Draw Zero Suit Samus

Artist: Dawn / April 6, 2011

Step 1.

This is just an example sketch on how to draw out Samus' breast shape properly. Instead of a cone shape you want to make sure that the breasts are drawn to look firm, and rounded. Almost like she is wearing a sports bra.

Step 2.

This is a diagram sketch on how the symbol should look on her breasts from a side view, and a front view.

Step 3.

Her eyes should be sketched out to have slender eyebrows, with eyes that have a serious expression. After all you are drawing Samus Aran, the main figure to Metroid. Some don't or didn't even know the person behind the armor was a girl.

Step 4.

Now let's begin our journey as we sketch or draw out Samus in her Zero Suit. Start by drawing the basic guides which is her head, and body lines. The body lines should be drawn in the pose that your figure will be standing in.

Step 5.

All you have to do here is sketch out the lower portion of her face which is the jawline, and chin. Once that is done draw the neck, and then sketch out the beginning lining for her eyes.

Step 6.

Even though she has a long straight ponytail, she still wears her hair sort of aloof in the from with a thick set of bangs, and side bangs. Sketch out her hair like you see in this step, and then add that cheek detailing line on the left side of her   

Step 7.

To make things easy I sketched out her ponytail to be thick and short, but you can draw her hair as it really looks which is long, skinny and straight. Once the hair is taken care of you can start sketching out the rest of her face starting with the    

Step 8.

Now that the head is all drawn out, you can begin sketching out her body starting with the torso. Draw the shoulders, then her back, and then her extended arm and hand. She will be holding her Paralyzer in the very hand you need to draw. Sketch out t   

Step 9.

All you need to do here is sketch out the rest of her body which is the long shapely legs, and then her feet. When that is done draw the lining between the inner thighs that will form a V shape for the pelvic area, and then draw out her Paralyzer gun   

Step 10.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is sketch in all those detailing lines that defines her Zero Suit. Be sure to add some soles at the bottom of her feet. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing and   

Step 11.

Here is what Samus Aran looks like once you are all done drawing her in. Now you can grab your coloring tools to color her in to make her complete. I hope you enjoyed drawing Zero Suit Samus for one of todays lessons.

Description: I'm sure you are all familiar with Samus from Metroid, and I bet you are also familiar with the fact that she appears in SSBB. I did two tutorials on this Metroid star but another request for her has surfaced once again. I was asked if I could make a lesson on "how to draw Zero Suit Samus", step by step. This is just the image that Samus takes on once her Power Suit is deactivated. Her sleek suit is all blue in color with shades of pink on the back and on the tops of her gloved hands. The Zero Suit is what she wears underneath her Power Suit and because it is a skin tight form fitting flexible suit, she is able to do acrobatic moves that she could never do in her bulky Power Suit. Her figure is very shapely once she deactivates or destroys the Power Suit. Her entire body is covered from neck to toe of a leotard type fabric that looks almost rubbery. We first get a glimpse of her jumpsuit in Metroid: Zero Mission which is the game I played with my brother. We had to defeat a dragon like creature while she wore her Zero Suit. It may have been another saga, but I'm pretty sure it was Zero Mission. Even though she doesn't have as much shielding abilities while in the Zero Suit, she is much more agile. You have to be sure you know what you're doing when playing Samus in her blue suit state because she takes on more damage than usual due to lack of armor. One good thing about the suit is the fact she is able to do all kinds of jumps and grappling movies. She can also crawl on all fours, or her belly to squeeze into tight spaces. One thing she does keep by her side is the Paralyzer which is as you know her weapon of choice. Anyways, drawing Samus Aran in this form is going to be a whole lot easier than drawing her in her Power Suit. At least you don't have to worry about sketching in all those fine detailing lines. If you are a fan of Metroid, you should enjoy this tutorial which will teach you "how to draw Zero Suit Samus". I still have two more lessons coming your way guys so stay tuned in to see what they are going to be. Peace people!
