Most of you will probably remember that when the LeChuck's Revenge Special Edition was announced, a picture of the promotional box art/poster was released. A lot of people were unhappy about the finished product (although, full disclaimer, I quite liked it), and some people over at the Telltale forums took matters into their own hands and made some fixes/adjustments to it. I changed LeChuck's head and beard to look less block-like and, after realising how much I enjoyed it, I decided to create my own take on the original art.
It's not meant to replace either the Special Edition art or Purcell's original, both of which are great in their own ways (although Purcell's is obviously better >.>), it's just my own little art project that I wanted to do as a tribute to the original.
Since this isn't 1992 and I'm not being commissioned by LucasArts to do this, I didn't have to worry about spoilers and so I was able to put them in the underground tunnels where they were in the game. The more eagle-eyed among you will also notice that I've given LeChuck's eyes and needles some voodooey treatments, and I've given LeChuck a nice green spray tan. These are things that I think reflect the in-game scene that I'm depicting quite well, although that's no slight on the original art, which I think is arse-bogglingly brilliant.
So, without further inane babbling, here it is:
If you want to use this in any way at all then you're more than welcome to as long as you accredit me
