Doom Knee Deep in the Dead Diorama: 3D Cover Art
July 7th, 2014
The late Don Ivan Punchatz’s cover art for Doom is as memorable as the game itself. Gaming Heads immortalized the illustration with this badass resin diorama. It’s called Doom: Knee Deep in the Dead, and it comes in two variants. The Exclusive Edition has pulsing lights inside its base. The floor is lava!
As you can see it’s a near-perfect representation of the cover art, down to Doomguy’s awkwardly posed left hand. The diorama is made of polystone and measures 12.5″ tall and 17″ wide. It’s hand-finished and hand-painted and has removable bullet effects.
It would’ve been more awesome if the backdrop and the title were included in the diorama. The Doom: Knee Deep in the Dead Exclusive Edition is limited to 350 units and sells for $400 (USD), while the standard edition is limited to 750 units and sells for $375.
