This is my first attempt ever at doing a speed paint. Its about 3 hours compressed into 4 minutes. Music by Pyro Paper Planes.

I just finished playing through Metroid 2: The Return of Samus for the first time since I was a kid. A lot of people seem to think its the worst Metroid game in the series, I don’t really know that it is. Despite how linear it is I still prefer it to the NES original. Its got its fair share of quirks, Samus sprite is way too big and its not exactly incredibly hard, BUT I do really like the design of a lot of the alien sprites and despite how basic the backgrounds are I still somehow found it rather atmospheric.
