When Doom was released way back in 1993 it wasn’t quite hyper-realistic but it was still pretty impressive as far as gaming went in those days. However it hasn’t really aged well and so a Deviant Art user, Elemental79, decided to spend 35 hours touching up an old screenshot to bring it into 2013.
He has very kindly recorded the process and you can now be amazed at 35 hours of work in just over 9 minutes! It really is pretty incredible.
Or if you don’t have 9 minutes to spend then here is the simplistic before-and-after screenshot.
In my opinion, you’s be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t watch the video.
I don’t think I’m alone in wanting Doom to be re-done with this aesthetic.
