I guess I've finally put all the finishing touches on this and it's ready to see the light of day. I'll spare the details of how much work went into building this behemoth scene, but I somehow enjoyed every bit of it.

This is an exact, voxel for pixel, 3D recreation of a section of Stage 7 - The Hangar - from the 8bit Nintendo classic Contra. Contra is easily one of the most famous and greatest video games ever created; this is the main game that causes many people to instantly recite the Konami Code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, [Select], Start) whenever the NES or retrogaming is mentioned.

This has become my personal favorite creation to date, and I never thought I'd top my Ice Hockey renders. Much gratitude to anyone that checks this out, uses it as a wallpaper, faves it, or comments on it. If this deviation gets decent enough fanfare, I'll likely make some more 3-D scenes from this game. Be on the watch for several Mega Man 2 wallpapers in the coming months. :D

Hey man! Definitely the best Contra paper I've come across! I'm using this on my Twitch stream where I am currently learning to speed run Contra games!
