Rocket Knight in High-Def by anotherblazehedgehog Rocket Knight in High-Def by anotherblazehedgehog
A little over 24 hours of work for this one.

I've been meaning, just out of curiosity, to try and make a "High-Def Game Screenshot" for a while now. I even started experimenting with something like this related to Shantae, but when the downloadable Rocket Knight game was announced, I seized my chance.

Sparkster himself and the wolf enemy were drawn by hand (while looking at a sprite sheet), scanned, and then colored with vectors.

The crystals are 3D models that I made in Milkshape 3D.

For the background, I took a few screenshots of the SNES Sparkster game and then traced over specific tiles with vectors. It was mainly to get the tile-size right, so none of what I traced is 1:1.

Some of it's kind of sloppy, but... I don't usually do videogame tiles, especially at this resolution.

Whoa! This is gorgeous! Makes me kinda wishful we could get a remake like this, but I'm sure you already have a bunch of comments like that.

I am just envious of your skill level! You call it sloppy, but I can't really see a thing wrong with it. Very soft, yet bright and pleasing to the eyes.

This has to be Sega's most underrated games. It was one of my favs when I had a sega genisis, next only to sonic 2, and they never made a sequal for it. :(

Looks great, I've been playing the new 3d one with my 6 button genesis controller (usb adapter), it's been a blast!
