Art by Joshua Keyes – Characters and scene inspired by Castlevania, owned by Konami.
I decided it might be fun to submit a piece for Jazza’s Contest of the Month: New Resolution. The goal was to take a scene from a game that was made for a 1990 or prior machine and redraw it in a higher resolution. *placed 2nd – Runner up in open category*

As a fun exercise I decided to find a screen shot of one of the greatest 2d side scrolling games ever made, Castlevania SotN. Eventually I’d like to create an entire HD remix of the screen shot as a fun wallpaper background. For now, I’m going to try and go through piece by piece as a study.
