METROID: Cosmic Duet by Eddy-Shinjuku METROID: Cosmic Duet by Eddy-Shinjuku
Book Cover Commission :iconbadassplz:

As you can see, all the spiraling action is happening towards the right side of the frame, which is in this case the front cover of the book.

DO CHECK OUT MY SAMUS ARTWORK TOO, TQ! ^_^

It seems someone used your picture to make a fake picture of Ridley in Smash Bros! The best part is that now I know about this awesome picture!

Same here, I also noticed that somebody has edited the text, which is almost pure grey, which never happens when putting up the camera very close to the bottom of the 3DS.

Anyways, what a glorious fanart.

Now, the question I have about Ridley is whether he's a pterodactyl or a dragon. I guess he breathes fire though...

In a broader sense he is a kaiju, a humanoid version of those you mentioned, so he isn't really a dinosaur or the likes of a dragon, but this Japanese derivative of a huge monster. Like in Pacific Rim, or Ultraman :D
He isn't of the earth, that rules out earthly creatures.
