Crazy Guy Remasters 320x240 Doom Screenshot Into Stunning 9600x7211-Pixel Photoshop

This. Is. MADNESS. Watch Deviant Art user Elemental79 converting a 320 x 240 pixel screenshot from Doom—the legendary 1993 game that made first person shooters popular—into a stunning 9,600 x 7,211 image complete with textures, lighting and 3D effects using Photoshop. It's absolutely nuts.

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."

Now I want to play the entire game rendered like this. John Carmack, make it so! [Deviant Art]

Are you telling me this guy spent 45 hours on this? a 9 min video with 1 frame = 10 seconds. 9 min x 60 seconds = 540 seconds, 30 frames per second = 16,200 frames, but each of these frames = 10 seconds in his photoshop world so 162,000 seconds. Divide by 3600 seconds (60 min * 60 seconds = 3600 seconds per hour). At $65 / hr, this image is supposedly worth almost $2,925.
