Super Metroid Tribute by sarrus Super Metroid Tribute by sarrus
Here it is, finished.
Part of the Super Metroid 20th Anniversary tribute organised by :Game-Art-HQ:

Where to start... For me, this is my upmost favourite video game of all time and I've lost track of the amount of times I've played and finished it, so I wanted to do something special as part of the tribute for it other than just a single character with a simple background.
The results aren't perfect but they're a showcase of what I can push myself to do.

I hope this picture portrays my imaginings of the different areas to the best of my abilities and shows just exactly what I can do with my skills and what can grow from learning and observing things.

Done in PS CS6 in about 15 hours.

Thank you. I tried to capture my interpretation of how the game felt to me, given my current skill level.

Just a heads up, I found this image being sold on Amazon as a poster with your logo removed.

www.amazon.com/CGC-Huge-Poster…

Came across it while doing a search for Metroid posters, and checked Google Images to make sure it wasn't stolen. :/

Thanks for the heads up. I doubt they'll do anything about it but I have contacted Amazon.
Annoys me how people think they can get away with this stuff. I hide my signature in all my work so I have a leg to stand on anyway :)

Man, this is amazing! :D
Any chance at seeing the different areas of Zebes as their own separate image? I feel the backgrounds here are really well done, and would love to see them full size! :meow:

Thank you.
I originally sketched them as full images but I wasn't confident in my skills at the time so they ended up like this. I may end up doing a different Metroid piece in the future as this one is still my favourite illustration so far.

This is a great tribute to Super Metroid. In my opinion, the Super Metroid version of Samus' armor is the best of all the games.

Thank you. Although I'm a fan of the Prime designs, you can't beat the gravity suit from Super Metroid.

Yaaaayyyyy....I absolutely love it! It's a little bit similar to an Earthbound piece I did. Super Metroid is my #1 best game ever. Good job capturing the feel of it.

Definitely one of the best Super Metroid art I've seen, simple and powerful. Very nice pose too.

F*ck Maridia though :D

Definitely the hardest area imo :p
Also when I was playing as a kid, I couldn't wall jump at all, so I grew to hate the place I suppose.
Looking forward to see more of your work, cheers ;)

Indeed. I try and mix the casual and speed run and try to get as many things as I can remember while getting a good time. I always end up with ~2:30 97%.
