This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Super Metroid. Released in 1994 Super Metroid featured an open world where bounty hunter Samas Aran must defeat Mother Brain to keep the galaxy safe from improper use of Metroids. There are also space pirates there looking to use Metroids to gain power. I think that is right.

Super Metroid's game style has lived on in many great Castlevania games. These Metroidvania games are amoungst my favorite, but Super Metroid still stands out as the one I'd most like to see in high definition.

In order to give the screenshot a 16x9 aspect ratio this is not an actual screenshot from the game, but made up of several screenshots and sprite sets. Included in this scene is a metroid, which is not accurate to the game, but believable since there wouldn't be a logical reason that one could not wander into Mother Brain's room (And I really wanted to remake the metroid).

This is now my wallpaper... on one screen. The other screen has Orioto's similar pic for Metroid 1.:)

All your work is amazing but this, in my view, is your Magnum Opus.

I have a question, I watched one of your speedpaint videos, and I noticed that you take various photos, arrange them and paint over them so they have the result you are looking for, so in which category will stand it for? I was thinking in photonanipulation but I don't really know. Thanks for reading and awesome work!

This is really cool (kinda like the new DOOM). You should consider making a platform game of it, even possibly under a different name with a slightly altered main character to not have Nintendo issues. I'm pretty sure people would back you up on kickstarter.

Absolutely stunning. I'm most impressed by your usage of textures; piecing them together into the different objects. An insane amount of detail to say the least.

Jesus, the detail in this is AMAZING! :wow:

*Yeah, the space pirates were working with Mother Brain, if I remember correctly, but I digress.

Love how you made the "Rinkas" all "fiery" in this, it is an interesting take on them, though I don't remember them being fired from the turrets or cannons firing them, as it kinda looks like they are here, but eh whatever. :shrug: It doesn't matter. =P
While it would have made things a real pain in the butt in the actual games themselves, I dig the addition of a Metroid in the room, it is a nice touch! And it too looks amazing! :)  And I haven't gotten started on Mother Brain...Jesus I can only imagine that thing awakening in its "final form" in this rendition!  But I'm rambling on and on, as I said before...JESUS THE DETAIL IS AMAZING! :clap:
