Doom - Pinky Demon Blocks the Exit

See how this images was made here...

This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Doom. The original size was 320x240 and the final product is 9600x7211. This is the highest resolution Photoshop image I've done to date (although I've done higher 3d rendering).

It is commonly agreed upon by all of humanity that Doom was the greatest game ever made. Okay, maybe not everyone. Doom was a PC game made in 1993 by id software. It was created by John Carmack, John Romero, Adrian Carmack and Tom Hall as well as many others. This is actually not a direct scene from the game but a composite. The Doom guy has only 1 rocket left and a pinky demon stands between him and freedom. If he shoots he's dead. These were some of the best moments in the game.

As you can tell the style matches closely to the original game, but with a slightly different perspective. I used a 3D rendering program to outline how things would appear in the scene to assure the perspective remained correct throughout the creation process.

The original image is 9600x7211 pixels and stored in 7 PSD files.

I watched this being made on 'Tube some time ago, still great man! As the LazyGamer I have a tutorial channel teaching new people to use the GZDoom Builder. Well, no that Ultimate Doom Builder is out I though I would redo my old Beginners Guide tutorial series and I would love to use this as a splash/background image for my intro, with some text and stuff over it. I would not want to do so without permission though. Credited of course!

Watching you work on this is amazing! I have played around with 3D programs for 10 years now and seeing a pro work in Photoshop is quite mind blowing! Well done good sir!

If he has a chainsaw, then he's fine. :) Otherwise, it's a fist fight.

I love the original Doom.  I've played it hundreds of times and still enjoy it.  It never gets old.

Also, you probably don't want to fire a rocket at that short distance.  You'll blow yourself up. Wink/Razz  

When it comes to the Pinky Demons, my weapon of choice is the chainsaw. Devilish

When I was a kid playing DOOM this was the only monster that scared the crap out of me. In the rooms that had a ton of them (especially when they were in dark ones) I asked my cousin to beat it. lol

spent many many hours on this game and wolfenstain, brings back some old memories
the 486 with the added math co, beefed 16 meg graphics card, the jacked to the max 512 ram  and the massive 150 meg hard drive :)
Was so cool to finally get to play video games in a first person perspective, until this it was always side scrollers, closest thing you get was the old arcade tank game battle zone.
Nice remake!

A solution to killing the demon:
He can punch the demon instead of blow it up. With a bit of timing and manuvering, even without berserk, he can take out the demon, conserve his rocket, and proceed on.
If he has a chainsaw, which is chances he could have one, he can cut it up instead.
