Ever wondered what kind of appearance famed bounty hunter Samus Aran would sport if she'd been designed by Hanna-Barbera instead of Nintendo? Allow famed UK artist Wil Overton — formerly of Super Play and Rare fame — to show you.

He's produced this amazing piece of artwork which is now available for order on Red Bubble. Such is the authenticity of this image that we can practically smell the amusing storylines, witty one-liners and slapstick physical comedy.

For those of you who aren't aware, Overton started his career drawing covers for UK anime and video game magazines back in the '90s before joining legendary studio Rare and working on titles like Perfect Dark Zero and Jetpac Refuelled. He's since gone freelance and now runs the rather excellent Dinkybox online toy store and publishes his own comic, Smart Bomb.
