Doom - Pinky Demon Blocks the Exit by Elemental79 Doom - Pinky Demon Blocks the Exit by Elemental79

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.

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!

The level of detail here is insane, great work.
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.

Could I use this for a project I'm working on? I'll give credit to the original artist. 
The solution is simple. Punch it. Even without berserk, punching a demon to death was entirely feasible. It was my weapon of choice when I was trying to save ammo. Like in doom 1 episode 3 map 1, there it was especially easy what with them confined to one narrow corridor (also when I played doom 1 episode 2 map 2, I would never use any weapon but punching the whole level). Punch and back away just a little, wait until their bite is done, step forward and punch and step back a little again. They can only hurt you at the end of their bite, kind of like the way an arch vile can only hurt you at the end of its spell, and only if you're standing in exactly the right spot, i.e. as close as you can get to it and it is facing you. This is why they sucked so hard at attacking other monsters and causing infighting, because the other monsters would move around and all they had to do was move a little bit and they'd be out of range of the demon bite, so you'd see an imp hitting a demon with an imp ball and the demon would crowd all around it trying to bite the imp, but the imp would still keep throwing its little wads at you because the incompetent demon would be unable to successfully attack the imp, for minutes at a time this could go on before finally the demon gets a shot in. Ironically, it's only when that happens that the imp would be more likely to be hurt by the demon, because when it's fighting the demon, it will stand still long enough for the demon to bite it.

Of course if you have the chainsaw (or berserk), then the solution is QUITE easy.

Also, is it me, or is the way you modified the doom guy's face to make him look a little more realistic, doesn't he kind of look like a white Teal'c (from stargate sg1)?

you know what I think is the most amazing thing about this?
in the first episode of doom have an specter stuck in the wall, he is really "blocking the exit" xD
lafhakfkejhjdghf, this image is amazing, very, and very, and very ^w^

As I said on the video, absolutely incredible. A definite favourite of mine, for sure! <3

Awesome work. If only Doom's graphics could be updated to this level today.
TheJame5X Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The graphical level would be possible, but would require someone to basically rebuild the game from the ground up. Stages, decorations, enemies, Marines, weapons, all of it.
LordIheanacho Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2015
Maybe someone should do that. Or I could wait until DOOM (2015) releases than I can make a remake mod based on the original DOOM instead.
TheJame5X Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that sounds like a cool idea!

aaww you made pinky demon look so adorable, of course I can't shoot my rocket at him! but this is such a masterpiece you made, I looove it! I still remember those days when I would play Doom with my dad and I would shoot all the monsters :) I don't know much about photoshopping but I think it's still pretty realistsic :D
