Impressions Of The Overworld (Part II)

Metroid Prime is 10 years old this year, so I played it again. Man, all the memories it brings back. I always get the same feeling when Samus first sets foot on Tallon IV's. The music comes in slowly, the cutscenes show different places of the landing site, and from that point on, you know you've got this whole world to explore. It's perfect.

At the same time, I really wanted to paint. Because Tallon Overworld impressed me so much after all this time, I wanted to paint some of it. I used no direct reference, but painted it all from memory. I didn't want this to be an accurate view of the place, but I wanted it to be my personal memories about it.

I also wanted to make more of it, by switching up my style of painting. You'll see that some of it is not the style that you're used to with my work. I combined my trademark markers with paint, which created the effects to make the trees feel more real (biggest one at the top). I also used very thick layers of paint for the small one, which I usually don't.

I'm very happy with the way this came out. Hope you'll like it too.

The inspiration for the last painting was the place, close to the Magmoor Caverns, you know, the beetle hive in the sand (bottom of the Root Cave). But again, I painted this from memory and without references, so it's understandable that you're having trouble recognizing it. Thanks anyways, for the fave too :D
