Super Metroid - Depths of Tourian by Elemental79 Super Metroid - Depths of Tourian by Elemental79
Watch how this image was made here...

[link]

This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Super Metroid. Released in 1994 Super Metroid featured an open world where bounty hunter Samas Aran must defeat Mother Brain to keep the galaxy safe from improper use of Metroids. There are also space pirates there looking to use Metroids to gain power. I think that is right.

Super Metroid's game style has lived on in many great Castlevania games. These Metroidvania games are amoungst my favorite, but Super Metroid still stands out as the one I'd most like to see in high definition.

In order to give the screenshot a 16x9 aspect ratio this is not an actual screenshot from the game, but made up of several screenshots and sprite sets. Included in this scene is a metroid, which is not accurate to the game, but believable since there wouldn't be a logical reason that one could not wander into Mother Brain's room (And I really wanted to remake the metroid).

Hi, I found this piece on Etsy, and instantly favorited it but then did some more searching to see what other type of work was in the shop and came to the realization that the owner of the shop was not the creator of the work. As an artist myself who makes his living selling his work and skills, I wanted to bring this to your attention. Maybe you know about this already maybe not. I just wanted you to be aware of it. I can't link to the Etsy page, but if you search TeamRocketStore I'm sure you will find it.

All the best,
-Tom Ryan's Studio

Hi Elemental79,

I really love this modernized screenshot of yours. I'm personally a big fan of this game and would love to see it in this style (exactly this style) with the same game play feeling (which is so smooth!).

I have a question, however. May I use parts of your work for printing it on a T-Shirt? (Samus and Mother Brain for the front, and the Metroid for the back).

Keep the screenshots coming :)

I always enjoy highly detailed pieces like this. I especially like the little details of the acid steaming and Mother Brain bracing herself for impact. Amazing job, sir or madam!!
As a side note: the "Rinkas" look nice in HD too...
