This thing started as two threads at the ScummVM-forums (FIRST and SECOND), but has now grown considerably, so enjoy the read!

 

The intro:

I've always been a fan of both painted artworks/posters and the classic LucasArts adventure games, and so I'm trying to preserve those classic artworks by Steve Purcell, Bill Eaken and the likes, cleaning them up, painting out overlaying text or stickers, plus taking the extra step to make these babies printable at poster size (or make them work as posters AT ALL).

 

Thanks to everybody who helped me gather material, scanning their game-boxes and -manuals, without you I wouldn't have come this far.

 

Big thanks to the fabulous Adventure-Treff for hosting most of these files!

 

(this thread is now easily reachable through poster.mixnmojo.com)

 

Direct download links can be found at the Adventure-Treff

 

So, here we go:

Yeah, I think it depends on the place you want to get these printed. Sometimes they don't care... sometimes they do. Printing them online (at German online-printing-services that is), has never been a problem though.

 

I've got mine printed at http://www.posterxxl.de (with their international sites for the UK, the Netherlands, France and the US)

 

How do you make these?

Blood and sweat, my friend, blood and sweat.... okay, maybe just sweat.

are you still working on the rest? :) this is really one of the best fan-productions in the scene so far... and it's not even the golden age of mojo anymore :)

 

full throttle, grim fandango, loom, OUTLAWS :D and the others still to come? :D

Whoa!! If you ever make a Grim Fandango (series of) poster(s), I'll be eternally grateful and order them printed pronto! In the meantime, there's one or two pretty swell here (they're all great though, don't get me wrong!). Keep up the AMAZING work.

I have to ask... just what kind of technique did you use to get such a high resolution image off of box art and Manuals? Or am I just misunderstanding how you pulled this off? ;)

 

I'm using a combination of Photoshop-tools... some to remove the halftone-pattern (the color circles you see when looking at a printed image real close), some to smooth out some noise and several standard Photoshop-filters to add artificial detail to the images (like canvas texture or brush strokes).

Would you happen to have the original Dig cover with the 4th astronaut from the audiobook?

 

A little something for you (click the image for a bigger preview):

As you can see this is far from finished... but actually this is how the DOTT-Star-Wars-artwork looked like in the beginning. I'll be getting there ;)
