Brinstar Wilderness by Francoyovich Brinstar Wilderness by Francoyovich
That's the last of my Metroid illustrations!
I ended up doing this one last, but it was originally the first one I designed.
The pink/purple fungal environment of brinstar always seemed interesting to me.

Now available on my shop! francoyovich.bigcartel.com/

Patience is something you have to learn yourself I'm afraid...

Another awesome interpretation. Wish we could get a game that looked like this. A 3D sidescroller could look amazing.

I've always wondered what those things floating to the ground were.
Those beetles look very vicious too.  Great work!

Do you think you could do a mini-process tutorial on how you actually made these in this style?
I'm having difficulty figuring out how you did all the lighting (it looks like a bunch of gradients...but...how?..you can't have done that to *every* block of colour...right?)
It's some pretty incredible stuff :)

Well to be simple, yes it is pretty much rendered with a gradient on every small surface. Though I don't use the gradient tool, I prefer using a very smooth round brush with some noise in it.
I use it with the lasso tool, that way I can get a nice gradient inside my selection and also keep a very sharp edge around it.

This is nice, but as a critical artist I can't say it's as good as your last two. The others had great juxtaposition(Big geometric Ridley Background with Samus on a Pillar in the foreground) and (Samus in a detailed horizontal cylinder over a vertical landscape of a wildlife).

This one has way less detail imo and less contrasting focal points. Just less motion, less going on. When the eyes have different areas to travel to it creates cerebral motion. This picture is flat and somewhat unmoving, but it is very pretty and good-looking. Maybe you could have thrown in that infamous green trio in the corner! A unique subject/focal point with contrasting colors. As one example.

When you point it out, now I see it too. Though after looking at them again I'd say that Caverns of Norfair also was simpler than Maridia. Like it went down in amount of details after each one.

Exactly, fantastic stuff no doubt, but the "movement" just goes down as the detail and contrast. Detail and contrast are different but tied together. If there's less contrast it becomes hard to see what detail is really there. And you can't have much contrast if there isn't enough detail to house it.

I have Metroid Zero Mission for the GameBoy Advance. It has(after you defeat it once!!) the original version of Metroid on it. I have sadly forgotten EVERY code for ALL the goodies!!😥 Still playing M.Z.M. without using a GameShark as I want to defeat it at least once honestly!😀
