This is my 2nd Metroid painting. It was much more gruelling and time-consuming than my first one:One Girl in All the World
Took a little over 70 hours and once again I'm still not satisfied with it. =/ Anyhow, this one goes out to all you Ridley fans. Hope you like it.
Here's a version without Ridley in it so you can see all of the background-- spent a long ass time on it! -_-Norfair Depths BG
Inspired by the Norfair Depths area song in Super Metroid. The song is nicely remixed here:[link]
Photoshop CS2: 70+ hours
