I'm mightily proud of this. My very first digital painting, completely done with a mouse.

EDIT : Added a Gamma Metroid to the left, and some more details in the BG.

Samus Aran, you must exterminate the Metroids once and for all!

This is a beautiful piece! Who says games aren't art?! Or at least inspire it!

Four hours with a mouse is fairly insane there, Jof. I'd be lucky to have this done in a month doing that... XD
Lighting is loverly, specially around Samus.
There's only one thing I don't really like about it, and that's the way everything is a little regimental. The Metroids are over there, Samus is there and the Gamma is there... they don't really mesh together into a single image, just three smaller ones beside each other.

Nice one, how long did this actually take? Must have been at last a good couple of hours straight if not over a long span

Thanks man : ) It took a good 4 hours or so, all in one go.

It's really good, however it seems so empty. However if you were concentrating on the background in this picture rather than the characters, that you did a brilliant job.

I wanted to portray the characters rather small to sort of get across the atmosphere of Metroid 2, that is being along in an alien planet fighting Metroids. It's a massive place and it's easy to get lost in.

Seeing as how I've never played Metroid II, I wouldn't of guessed =P

I have to try some of the older games someday.

I have to say the detail and lighting are very stunning. (Let alone the fact that you did this with a mouse o_O ) I just find it intriguing that you put more detail into the characters rather than the background.

I think this is probably down to me not usually drawing BG at all, I'm pretty inexperienced in that area, but thats something I wantd to push in this picture.

Mouse?! How did you do that? Custom brush?
jofamo's avatar

Nope, no custom brushes, just the plain circular one, 41% opacity and 20-something% flow.

I'm looking into buying a Wacom Bamboo. None to expensive and I've heard good things.

As long as the music isn't chosen by any of my relatives, I'm up for that.
