What sort of places are you looking at as far as print shops? Places like Kinko's/FedEx Office? If so, maybe you should look into some that are more like graphic designers than SOHO-oriented.

Laserschwert is king. And Chaosman is a prince


We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers.

I'm currently in the process of recreating the Grim Fandango game cover in Illustrator. I'll post the final thing when I'm done. I completed Manny, here's a little preview:

Thanks! I don't want to show the proper thing off until it's finish, but I'll keep posting screenshots from outline mode if people are interested. Just finished Olivia today, next up, Dom!

Yes, definitely very good. Looks like Manny's fingers are sticking through his lapel, although I expect you're already aware that there are glitches. Judging from the size of Olivia and such, I'm guessing this will be poster-sized?

Thanks for pointing that out! There are lots of layers, I'd just swapped a couple round and hadn't noticed that glitch.

It's going to be 100% vectors so it can be scaled however big or small with 0% loss of quality.

Ha, I wish I could! Imagine, a HD remake of Grim Fandango released through XBLA, PSN and Steam...

This is gold. Can't wait to see the whole work!

After monkey island, I'm planning to do some minimalist poster of GF. This was just a draft:

N3mo, if you do, it would be great if they were vectors or a higher resolution!

Nice stuff guys! Thought I would check out how the Grim Fandango community was doing since the 12th anniversary of the game (and my old Glottis' Garage website) just passed. Glad to see a few people still around. This one (http://www.jamiehunter.co.uk/preview03.jpg) looks great in particular. Hopefully when you are done you can post them at a really high resolution so we have the possibility of getting them printed and framed professionally. If the other poster finally gets scanned properly that would also be amazing. I think I have a small one of that from an old PC Gamer magazine, but a proper movie poster size would be awesome to put on the wall.

Hi Chaps.
Sorry for the lack of updates. Between moving house and work commitments I've not had a lot of time to make progress. I WILL be finishing this though and I WILL be making it available at whatever resolution people want

got myself the scan of the poster. Lotsa grain and noise, some saturation problems (fixed), since laserschwert is currently busy I'll see if I can polish it enough to make this scythe shine again. Expect progress in....I reckon a week?

Don't hesitate to post the raw, uncorrected file. I'm sure I, and other photoshop-experienced people visit who the forums and wouldn't mind a whack at it.
