Note: Decent sized version of the finished product HERE, but check out the artist's DeviantART page for a giant one.

DeviantARTist Elemental79 remastered this iconic 320x240 Doom screenshot into a 9,600x7,211 resolution version spanning seven Photoshop files. For reference, that's six more Photoshop files than I'd know what to do with.

According to the author, "each frame represents ten seconds of work. The image spans across 7 PSD files at a resolution of 9600x7211 pixels. The project took 35 hours to complete over the course of 8 days."

Good work, Elemental79. Tough break on not being able to snag the Elemental69 username though before somebody else got it. I hate it when people manage to take my name before me. Seriously, how many DinoLovers can there really be in the world?

Hit the jump for a gif of some details, a time-lapse of the piece being made, and a bonus Contra version he did too because why not, everybody loves Contra.

Thanks to Matty M and Diana, who prefer lower resolutions to higher resolutions because they're convinced it's easier on their eyes. Is, uh, is that true?
