Artist’s Description: When I drew this picture I wanted to capture the old simple feel of the 8-bit game. It was nothing more than dark corridors, getting deeper and deeper, with strange colorful blobs of pixels as enemies. Your imagination did the rest.
I tried do do something in-between the very simple color and design of the original and what you can see today (I loosely referenced Samus’ suit from a couple of Metroid Prime pics), in search of something that isn’t an over-design of the concept and would still retain some of the crudeness of the 8-bit original impression I got as a kid.
