Holy crap. That is amazing! Absolutely love the painterly style and the shading! Very dynamic pose, and the color contrasts between blue and orange glowing things look awesome!

Jaw dropping work here! My game! Thanks for making this! I sure do miss it...

Thank you so much! Glad you like it. I miss it too. Here's hoping it gets revived some day.

Oho, so THIS is who made this lovely piece. I've seen it before while doing Keen google image searches. It's pretty damn epic. I don't see the problem with the helmet, looks pretty obviously like Captain Keen to me. ;b Have you tried the unofficial Episode 7, 8 and 9? They're neat!
The world needs more Keen fan art. Actually, Episode 6 was the first game I played in my life. lol
/end horrible rambling pseudo-review

Scottr5680 responds:

Thank you very much! I really appreciate your comments. :) I've played at least episode 7, I forget if I played 8 and 9 yet. If not I should sometime. And I've of course played the first 6 and keen dreams, 5 and 6 being my favorites.

John Carmack would be proud.

Actually it'd be pretty cool if he could see this.

Scottr5680 responds:

Thank you so much! It certainly would be if he saw it. I actually tweeted it and 3drealms retweeted (they also used my drawings for Cosmo and Monster Bash on their site, which is an honor), so they know of it, but I don't know if anyone at id or involved with the Keen games have seen it.

Hoooooooooly shit

Now THAT is how you do a remaster. You gotta get some kinda team to make a sequel to this

Scottr5680 responds:

Thank you! Glad you like it! That would be awesome. I'd be up for that if id/3drealms would want me to.
