Here's a comparison to show you just how much more detail is in the KIXX box:

Ok dude these are huge! I wouldnt be surprised if they gave me nightmares!

And Laserschwert, did you consider using

as a guideline for the clouds in your poster? (maybe you already did that but I just saw this and thought it would be a good idea)

I didn't paint the clouds myself, I've used a photo for them. The clouds in the sketch look too cartoony though, and wouldn't fit the style of the final painting. And I'm no artist, so I can't translate from one style to another ;-)

I also took it upon myself to do two versions of a Grim Fandango poster. One with the slogan, and one without the slogan.

I hope you guys like them... I haven't received them back from the printers yet, so I don't know how they look at full size...

I'll accept any constructive criticism...
Does anyone have the Grim Fandango image mentioned here? There was also apparently an EMI poster that someone made as well. The download links aren't working so if anyone has them and can upload for me I'll appreciate it! (I know Laserschwert is intending to do all the posters, and he's posted WIPs of EMI already, but these will tide me over until his are available.)

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

I think sanguinehearts made some EMI posters in laserschwertz thread over at the scummvm forums in the junkyard section. You can have a look there, I don't have time to find the exact post myself.

Well I just did a quick mock-up of what I meant:



I just very roughly selected out some of the cloud from the sketch. And then made the white transparant and stuck it on your poster. Then with a little opacity tweaking and other contrast and brightness tweaks I got that.

I didn't really bother to get too much into it because frankly, I think you can do a better job and you seem to enjoy taking up your time with it :P I'm sure it is quite easy to draw your own version of the sketch's cloud shape. All you need is the outline and then just sorta darken the bits behind the outline and you have simple clouds! Which will be a lot better than my copy, paste and tweak job :P

Edit: Damn, that looked A LOT better on my laptop screen XD That often happens with me. Like if I've mixed a song or something it will only sound good with MY earphones. I need to work out how I can avoid that :/

That "poster" is still built of my scan. That's why I've gone back to my original scan to try and make a full clean artwork. I'm using Laserschwert's tress and sky - and a little bit more but that may be all I end up using once complete. Here's how it's looking:



Keep in mind this is a work in progress. The orange section refers to a part of the image that will ultimatly contain the lower portion of the picture - I've removed the text over the crossbones using Laserschwert's image - but the skull I'm doing myself ... bit by bit. This is for the DVD cover I will release for the special edition (well the product clearly doesn't come with one, thus I shall give it to you).

-edit- I've added part of the missing bottom using a low-quality source (mainly to prove it can be done). I'll clone over it later the hardest part will be the monkey - the next hardest will be the plant on the left. There's only 3 things that need to be done: 1. remainder of text removed from skull. 2. bottom part of image extended. 3. sky at top extended (to complete DVD cover aspect ratio).

Question

No offense, but why would you guys attempt so hard to remove what is an actual part of the MI poster? I believe the letters round the poster and without them, it feels empty and lacks impact (which isn't suprising; after all, it was drawed having them in mind).

Great work anyway; and despite what Lasershwert may think (heh), restoring & cleaning such big pictures IS art, and therefore you should be considered artists.

BTW: You guys should definitely update the thread and add this one (courtesy of parabolee)



The poster-sized version is right here: http://flat-life.com/temp/Monkey-Isl...-LSEdition.jpg

Pretty cool, although I don't like the big-eyed disney-like monkey.

It's an ancient technique called Voodoo. It's nothing to be played around with, though.

Well I could say the same about the changing of Guybrush's face in the poster you linked to, surely Guybrush is pretty integral XD And there is a version with the logo still.

It's just that the Monkey Island 2 poster looks so cool without the logo that it seemed only appropriate to do the same for the first game, am I right?

Have you seen the posters here:

http://scummgames.net/posters.htm

Look at the first poster - it has no text in it whatsoever (but the image is cropped on the left and top and possibly the other sides).

Anyone you asked why... well it's so I can do this:



(Create a DVD cover for the SE using the origin al artwork). The SE logo looks a little squashed compared to the original, I might vertically stretch it.

I really don't like the new logo at all, it feels too cluttered and intentionally 'raggedy'.

The original logo is clean, crisp, bold and really shows off its intentions well.

Well I really don't like "dl only" releases. At least I'm doing something about it and people can choose to print one of my covers if they wish to keep a hard copy.

By the way, I'm surprised at how fast my new page (scummgames.net/posters) has been indexed by Google: http://images.google.com/images?imgs...ey+island+scan

This is good, because that is one way of drawing visitors to the site.

The first poster in your link is only cropped at the top. It has the bottom part you are trying to add to your cover, it also shows a little bit more on the left side.

The bottom part is not going to be that difficuilt to add. I have a guide for every part of it:



Laserschwert already did most of the monkey, the rest is much easier. I don't know how much more is on the original painting - but if the sketch is anything to go by not much.



Don't forget I filled in the KIXX MI2 scan as well... this is what it looked like after blending it with the bottom of the LEC Box:



And it came out brilliantly!

Your image look a little bit stretched compared to Laserschwert's poster, kind of like when your 16:9 TV stretches a tv-show that is supposed to be 4:3. You should fix that.



Also, do you think it is possible to add the extra part on the left side that is on the first poster you linked to earlier? (http://scummgames.net/posters.htm)

Yeah I just resized it wrong (had "maintain aspect ratio" unchecked). I've done it with the last three images, but it's all good. There really isn't much to add on the left hand side (or the right hand side), I don't see the point. You see the rest of the cannibal's stick but that's about all. I may do it at a later time, it's certainly possible - in fact here's the left hand side anyway:




(Correct Size). And you can see I've removed even more of the text on the skull now. I'm doing it myself because I want better quality. It is tedious to do it right.

Ok, I really hope you add the left-side part, I also hope Laserschwert will add it to his poster.


BTW, what do you mean with better quality? Are you using a scan from the KIXX box?

Well, not to interrupt the voodoo/vooboo/voojoo/etc. conversation, but I just figured that I would share my Full Throttle poster that I finally had printed up.

I had it done at posterXXL and decided that I would experiment with the colors on it since a lot of people have said that they are just too contrasty from there. I backed off the contrast 15 points (according to the Gimp) and sent that in. The picture I got back was about as close to the original as it could get.

Here is a picture of it all framed and done!: (keep in mind, my camera actually makes the picture look less contrasty than it really is in real life, hah you'll just have to trust me that it came out nearly perfect!)


I got the frame for $9.17 at Michaels today, marked down from $16.99 too!

Thanks Laserschwert!
