Wow. The lighting is incredible!

I think, Samus Returns for 3DS is a mediocre game with awful graphics. This image here is proof, how some great 2D graphics are so much better, than 3D graphics in a 2D view. A Super Metroid remaster with this look - hell, I'd pay full price. Nintendo is stupid to be so ignorant towards their fans.

This is _gorgeous_. I'd love to see a process video. I'm guessing matte painting, then aliasing, then hand-touchups?
Orioto's avatar
You have good eyes! Yes but it's not a big matte painting then resizing, it's done at native rez for each element, but with textures etc + shading on top of it without ever resampling anything 
Scizor24's avatar
Okay, yeah that makes sense. Multiple resize attempts would mess with resolution consistency, I would imagine. I'm also curious if you started with the original sprite art in this case.
Orioto's avatar
For the sprites i use the original as model and i redo it, except for kraid here obviously where i had to use lots of lightning and texturing

This is sooooo good man, a Metroid game in this style would be perfect I think. The mix between realistic and 16 bit is a perfect medium for a style for a new game imo

what is the specification for neo16bit?  is the tile size double the resolution of normal 16 bit?
Orioto's avatar
You realize it doesn't exist haha, but there are no tiles, it's just modern pixel art done in 640x360 with no color limit!
tremault5's avatar
haha ok XD
well it looks wonderful and it just inspired me a little.
it takes me back to the days when i used to play snes games with certain resolution sprites and I used to imagine the future of games where the sprites were bigger, but the future turned out differently.
There was only people like SNK who sort of went that direction.
Orioto's avatar
Actually SNK kept the same resolution until KOF XII :p

oh damn! okay thanks :)

HOly fffffff-! *completely blown away*

This was the moment when the player realized that Kraid really isn't as much as a pushover as he seemed in the first Metroid game, even though he's giant (and still a pushover.)

That said, epic work as always.

Your art always makes me go "Holy shit" when I see it in my feed.
