Amazing work! Usually with these kinds of artworks, the picture is blurry and difficult to see-- but this is extremely clear! I am very impressed with the amount of detail and effort that has been put into this amazing piece of art! What did you use to draw/paint this? How did you achieve such appealing visuals and/or make it appear so clear? Tell me your secrets--

Hi! Thank you for the kind words! The drawings were all done digitally, you can see those here: phillgonzo.deviantart.com/gall…

My precious friend Jimmy Xu painted the linework artdoge.deviantart.com/?rnrd=1… and i did a final cleanup pass. It's so clear because the image is HUGE since it needed to be printed!

Excellent work! I love the shading and lighting, plus the colours, it looks like it's straight out of an HD remake of Super Metroid.

Damn, Mother Brain is freaking ugly! Same with Kraith.....and everyone else in this image not Samus-shaped. Like the level of detail.

One of the best pieces on the site.
Now all you need to do is make a separate piece for each of them like you did with Ridley.
Can't wait to see more like this.

Agreed; this depiction of Mother Brain is fantastic.
Truly a work of beauty - you cannot tell where the biological starts and the mechanical ends.

The guardians of the big bad Mother have never looked so ugly! Excellent attention to detail, while keeping them nearly identical to the original sprites.

Ridley's tiny wings will always be silly. Maybe he was supposed to be levitating...

Thank you for the appreciation! One day I need to do Crocomire, i love him.

You know what's funny? Whenever I've seen proportional wings that might actually work on Ridley, it looks wrong in my opinion. I guess those little wings are just ingrained into my mind.

Ridley is quite... skeletal.  Not sure how I feel about it, but it all looks fantastic all the same.  Great work man!

I always interpreted Ridley as decompressed/skeletal looking like a Giger design!
