William "xiabaosg" Chua, the Singaporean illustrator that created that rad ukiyo-e mash-up of Monster Hunter and Super Mario Bros. a while back, has a new video game piece that takes the same Japanese painting style and applies it to Konami's run'n gun series Contra.

This "Rescuse Dawn" piece is inspired by the third level in the NES version of Contra -- you can check out the full version with the alien boss and power-up boxes after the break. I've also added an earlier version of the artwork before the illustrator collored in everything. 

Chua is considering taking preorders for a poster version of the image. More of his artwork is available to admire on his Facebook page.
