See how this image was made here...

For this project I decided to start with the 8-bit Nintendo game Contra and up the resolution to 9600x5400 pixels.

The Nintendo game Contra was one of the more popular NES games about some guys who looked like Rambo trying to defeat some aliens on an island. Or at least that is what I think it was about.

I tried to match the style of the game as close as possible, but took some creative liberties where I thought it really needed it.

I figured the Level 6 boss, who I think is a robot, would be the coolest looking boss. The last boss is a giant heart and that seems too easy. The other bosses are not really characters.

The project took 25 hours to complete over the course of 6 days.

The original image is 9600x5400 pixels and stored in 3 PSD files.
