This is my attempt to take a low resolution video game screenshot and turn it into something much more detailed.
The arcade game Killer Instinct was displayed at an amazingly low resolution of 320x240 which was a common resolution of the time. Played on today's TVs, the game looks like a blurry mess. Rare made the game using mostly computer generated imagery which at the time looked amazing. By today's standards, not quite so much.
By using Photoshop I was able to remake a screenshot from the game the way my brain wanted to remember it.
I chose Sabrewulf because I thought it would be a good challenge to work with something that has lots of hair. I was planning on the 2nd character being Fulgore, but settled for Spinal since I couldn't find a Fulgore sprite. I think it turned out better with these two as it matches the theme better to have a skeleton instead of a robot in a setting like this.
The original image is 8000x6000 and stored in 3 different PSD files.
