The source image for Romero's head

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

That shadows are identical between the high-rez shot and the Fuzzy Pumper Palette Shop grabs of it, too. It don't look purple, but you can tell it's the exact same shadows on his face.

 

(Some of them even remain in the final Boss Brain sprite if you squint, mostly the stuff over the right half of Romero's face/cheek.)

The picture has the same pout to the lips, the same little curl to the hair on his forehead. That sure seems like the picture to me.

 

I remember hearing somewhere that it was taken from his iD employee badge--which always seemed odd to me that that would be the picture on his badge. This actually makes more sense.

They did a good job of removing the purple splotch by making his whole head pink!

 

Really interesting find, I love random nuggets of Doom history like this.

Where did the other frame come from, I wonder? The one when you shoot the head and he trembles in pain?

Pretty sure that was hand-drawn by Jules or Kevin Cloud.

Yeah, that's what they WANT you to think.

But seriously, the pic and article is obviously from before Doom II came out so..... spoiler alert on the enemies?!

Hey John what would you say were the hardest things to get converted with the program? Colourwise, or pattern wise~

We had no company badges, ever.

 

I mean when you're forever immortalized as a head on a stick, one must assume that's all the facial recognition needed to get access to pretty much anywhere. 😁
