Super Metroid HD by modusprodukt Super Metroid HD by modusprodukt
Though I generally default to doing remixes of SEGA properties, metroid does hold a special place in my heart. For the game's 25th anniversary, I completed something I'd wanted to do for a while: A high-resolution take on the iconic Super Metroid title screen. I've tried to recreate some of the feel of the game's concept artwork in the process. Created using photoshop and a wacom digitizer.

It always amazed me that the space station looked so clean after an attack by Ridley.

I love the remake of the Super Metroid you have done. It's dark but beautiful. Excellent job and great effort on the design of the lab. But I love the Baby Metroid even better. :)

The metroid itself seems too plain compared to the rest of the background, doesn't it? Would be perfect if it had more detail, like the veins (nerves?)

Glad you guys like it. Now, I do have variants WITHOUT the bodies, the title screen text, and all points in between. Would people be interested in that?

This is an amazing undertaking, and a classic screen no M fan could ever forget.
It was already nightmarish, even before the in-game logo creeped up, and the little Metroid "shrieked".
Amazing job on this piece. =D

~Outstanding work!

You did an amazing job capturing the dead and lifeless bodies of the Scientists, but my personal favorite is the baby Metroid.

I love the overcast of light and shadow on the tank... you made it clear that area is the central point to view.
I'm enjoying the rich, murky areas too! The dark muted colors...the vague non-distinctive shapes.... you created such an mysterious environment here. It screams Metroid to me. --I really love what you did.

I wish I could explore more of your world and interpretation of the Metroid universe.
This is an awesome rendition of the original.

Thank you very much for showing us such an amazing, awe-inspiring piece. :heart:
