BTW, what do you mean with better quality? Are you using a scan from the KIXX box?
No I'm not. I am using my original scan, resized to 300dpi but cleaned, filtered and with some pretty advanced sharpening filters that clarify the detail in the original artwork better. I've also cranked up the saturation and contrast. Here's a sample:



First image is how it appears on my MI1 DVD cover. The colour and tone of the image was deliberate - but still the image suffers from a lot of noise and rather fuzzy and appears out of focus. The second image is Laserschwert's - which I believe is from my scan as well but with different filters used on it. The last image is how the new version looks. The image is sharp, does not contain much noise and the colours are vibrant.

sometimes noise or grain can be good to suggest more detail in an image.
Especially with enlarging something for print, grain can do wonders.
Did you already do a test print?

I think the contrast is slightly too high, something in between would be nice. The monkey has also been made too sharp, doesn't really look like fur any more.

How about this:

Oh man you're not the only one, I do that all the time.

Try not to take what people say to heart too much. I'd interpret LordTrilobite and Scapetti's posts as gentle ribbing rather than mean spirited derision.


You mean the way the sea stays steady as a rock and the buildings keep washing up and down? Yes I thought that was odd.

I think the film grain may be a little exessive, so yeah I plamdi's better. Perhaps a version in between would be best looking.

Well I used the same cropped image he used but if you look at Laserschwert's full resolution up close, it's not as fuzzy anyway. Personally I think Laserschwert's is fine just the way it is!

Here is Laser's actual version:

That still seems kinda flat, the dark colours can be much deeper, giving it so much more potency.

What I've removing is the half-tone dots... trust me you don't want or need those in there.

I don't do test prints until the whole image is ready, then I'll know if any one part of it is wrong.

The level of sharpnesws you need to apply to an image for print is different than for screen, so it's good that it looks a little over-the-top on screen. Look at the "hair" on the image that is in the top right section over guybrush's-hair/pirate's-red-hat - it's an original part of my scan (I'll remove it from the image later) - but is fuzzy in both the first two images, and in my new image it is sharp and much more detailed - it has a clear line and shape.

I assume your conttrast concerns are to do with the monkey - again you'll need to see it printed, trust me. This is what the same image looks like with a different gamma setting (to show the depth of colour/contrast in there).

I used the 300dpi image Laserschwert provided that was later resized to the full "poster" resolution with the brush filters applied to it.

Hey guys, coupla' questions.

One - Was anybody able to get onto CHAOSMAN regarding a scan of his awesome Grim Fandango poster? I'd seriously love to have that thing on my wall..

Two - Is anybody willing to attempt a Psychonauts poster? That game's got brilliant box art.

Thanks all

UPDATE: Just realised you can buy a Psychonauts poster off the Double Fine web site. So gettin that baby..

Can you locate this to me? I would like to have it please. And I still think the monkey needs that fuzziness in his hair. He just doesn't look furry otherwise.


And I duno LordTrilobite... everyone has their own tastes and I just think that any more contrast than what I provided, would be unbareable. Keep in mind that the middle pirate already has a lighter shade of hair than Elaine's.

I still think Laserschwert's are just FINE the way they are!

I'm so glad they didn't use the original design for the EMI boxart:

I can't find a higher res version, but Guybrush's face is messed up...

I've made a new Full Throttle poster based on issue 8 of the Adventurer. This took a long time to make. I basically had to repaint everything. Enjoy!

Nice! I've been asking Laserschwert for a poster of this for a while now, looks like he can just skip it now

edit; Hmmm, have you made a testprint of this? Up close, the edges look a bit photoshoped/paintbrushed/blured.

It is mostly Photoshop. I didn't have the original source to work with. It's not perfect, but I think it looks good.

Awesome.

I was searching the net today because i wanted to create a LucasArts adventure game themed Fender Strat guitar scratchplate.

These pics will come in most handy.

Do you intend to do Loom as well? This is the only key adventure game i see missing from the portfolio. I think it would make a fine poster!

Why did you post it? I know that the big version is on deviantART, but what's the point in posting the small image?

Nobody's pissed at you.
Don't take these internet forums so serieus.
People are just having fun... And Laserschwert is just cranky.
