EDIT: If you guys liked this Deviation, then y'all might like my other metroid fanart! :D

I'm pretty proud of this one. There's not alot of pictures of it here on D.A. Hrmm...
Anyways, I tried to make it look like it was in motion, like that weird charge move it does in the game.
I just love drawing metroid creatures! I wonder what I should draw next...

I used this as a ref: [link]

But the artwork above belongs to me because I made an original pose.
please do not copy/use my art without my permission. Thanks.

Artwork (c) me

Emperor ing (c) Nintendo, Retro Studios, whichever made the game. Maybe both.

Curious fact: this form, "Mutated Emperor Ing" in the original english version, is named "Supermutated Emperor Ing" in the Spanish translation, as if it had mutated far more than normal due to all the phazon inside the imperial room (well, technically the "Ing" are called "Dark ones", since adjective nominalization only takes one word. So yeah, "Supermutated Dark Emperor").

Very cool! As your description says, you don't see a lot of art of this challenging, cool-looking boss enemy. Wow, beating him was a pain...in any of his fifty-bazillion forms! None of which changes the fact that this is a great rendition of the ultimate Ing.

I did not, I remember searching on DeviantArt for the Emperor ing and saw very little of it, so I decided to add some fanart! Indeed, this was the hardest boss I ever fought in the metroid prime trilogy!

Thank you for the comment!

Seriously this Guy was the best Boss Battle I have EVER seen, and it would have made such a GREAT Final Battle, but the Final Boss of that Game was a TERRIBLE Dark Samus Fight....

Absolutely Stunning rendering of the Emperor Ing. I love the illumination effects and motion blurs on this work too.
I prefer him over Metroid Prime all the time lol.

You like MP or Emperor more? It sounds as if you agreeing with me but your statement says you like MP more. I'm just alittle confused.

errr...I like the design of the main boss of Metroid Prime 1 more than I like the boss for metroid prime 2 echoes.
However, the emperor ing is awesome, there's no question about that!

Oh, yes. I am proud of this one, for the emperor ing is very difficult to draw.

I have attempted quadraxis before, and failed miserably D:

It's basically a mutated, five-legged thing that tries to kill you. Typical video game monster.

It's from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Since it's a nintendo game, there's not alot of blood.

my dog just peed on the floor of my room.

Nice. My dogs never peed in my room, though he enjoys just going up there and chewing/destroying my headphone.

My friends dad kicked their dog down the stairs when it shitted in his room. Never did the dog go upstairs again.

It was a lovely story don't you think?...
