A Reimagining of the "Cave of the Past" level from Earthbound/Mother 2. I've had this idea in my head for a while after playing through such a happy bright game and then getting to this spot. 

This large grey rocky world gave off such a spooky lonely feeling, like a bright silent hill, which is how I wanted to make the scene appear. Perhaps it is too texture filled compared to the source material, or perhaps it needs more work? I went for a more realistic tone as I tend to do with my Cartoony HD tributes. I worry maybe I lost the appealing simplicity of the jagged edges by making them more worn pieces of cliffside instead. I mostly wanted to call it finished and move on to something else, but I plan to eventually be releasing other scenes from the End of Earthbound/Mother2. Until then, Thank you for reading and watching!!

Ah, I really like the decision to render the rocky outcroppings with varying heights. Really lends a sense of scale and space to the otherwise flat area in the original.

I'm so bad at making characters! I'm going to stick to making more scenes from the ending for now since the robot bodies continue until giygas. At least 3 more pictures are planned :0
