SuperSmash Bros 4 - Metroid Tribute [Preview Only] by RedCaliburn SuperSmash Bros 4 - Metroid Tribute [Preview Only] by RedCaliburn
Wow, how far I have came as an artist has been amazing this year.

I created this piece to dedicate the Metroid series themselves, as I have grew up playing with Super Metroid. I found it really creepy and atmospheric in the isolated world of Zebes. In the end, it turned out to be a pretty cool experience of a game that I hold dear to my heart. Also, Samus is a badass. :P
This lovely piece took over a whooping 35+ hours to create. A lot of redo's, frustration, the tones, style, and techniques I had to borrow from others was incredibly difficult. From my previous experience, my inspiration for this piece came from digital paintings, and the use of a marker. Phew; hopefully, I will continue to improve the use of gradients in no time. But especially rendering- those ate up most of my time in this piece. Hope you enjoy~

Materials used:
-Pencil and sketchbook (for drafting)
-Photoshop CS5 Extended
-Intuo's 4 Tablet

Thank you! Hey, it's been awhile since we last talked. I'm always trying different ways to improve technique's, or find a style I'm really inspired by. It helps me stay motivated to continue working on improvement and study.
