LucasArts Posters: The Revenge


Recommended Posts

Welcome back!


With the forums back up, I think it's time to revive my poster thread as well. It's been quite a while since I've added anything to the project, but lately I felt the need to get back into it. Over the last few years, there's been a lot of improvements in terms of image restoration techniques and upscaling tools, and looking back at the old posters sometimes makes me cringe at how they look by today's standards. That's why, aside from adding new posters (marked with the |NEW| tag), I'm going to update existing posters with improved versions every now and then (marked with the |UPDATED| tag). For any newcomers, you might want to check the archived version of the old thread to get you up to speed (which in turn links to even older threads on the ScummVM forums, Inception-style).


In the old thread I've refrained from including Star Wars games (with Rebel Assault II being the exception), but over the last few months I've restored several SW artworks that I think deserve to be included. Both these and the posters for all Indiana Jones games have been moved to their own categories. Some quick jumps:

LucasArts original games

Indiana Jones games

Star Wars games

Non-LucasArts games


To make downloading easier, Mix'n'Mojo is now hosting all the files themselves, so you can just click the thumbnails for a larger view, or right-click/save-link-as to save the full-size poster directly. I've also set up a GoogleDrive containing all the posters.

So, let's get to the posters. Enjoy!

This is all absolutely brilliant, thank you! I've been holding out for this!

 

Any chance of restorations of any other Monkey Island artwork that's come to light in recent years, like the alternate poster designs for MI2, or some of the background art like Wally's home and the International House of Mojo?

On another note, I'd like to show some comparisons of what I mean by updating existing posters. The improvements in quality result from a combination of a) having access to better sources and b) having better tools at my disposal. Note that on my old versions I often used fake texture and bump-mapping to simulate brush strokes and detail where originally there was nothing like that (although some details and grain are added artificially in the new versions as well). Here are a few samples:

I'd also like to show an extreme example of better ways to upscale images using basically artificial intelligence (or "machine learning"). The promotional "Infernal Machine" artwork (or something that was an early concept for the main cover) was originally only shared on Drew Struzans own website, albeit at very low resolution. Here's how it looks after upscaling it in various steps:

Here are scans of the 5 episode posters from Telltale's Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse episodes.

Poster design by Stephen Whetstine        and shared with permission. The artwork for The City that Dares Not Sleep drawn by Steve Purcell.

The posters were originally 17x11", but were scanned on an A3 scanner and thus missing a couple of millimetres in length, but otherwise very close to the A3 paper format.

A great addition! If you are okay with it, I'd like to add them to the opening post (and copy them over to the Mojo server for hosting as well).

 

In other news: I've added the artwork to the two X-Wing expansions, "B-Wing" and "Imperial Pursuit", as well as the TIE Fighter expansion "Defender of the Empire". Also new: A promo artwork for "Jedi Knight".

I might have higher quality versions of these. Will dig around.

Some kind soul shared a high quality scan of this on Facebook a while back. I don't know if it's something you'd include LS. But if it is, let me know and I'll give you a link.

This is just a painting Purcell has sold prints of in the past, not a poster associated with a game box or marketing. At what point are these just bootlegs?

Yes, that's why I didn't share a link to the scan. Even though you can't buy this poster, it's crossing over into bootleg territory. I guess should be limited to promotional materials that aren't owned by the artist.

I can only find two of the Devils Playhouse posters in my files, and only 4x6 versions that were pack-ins for a retail release. :( I will keep digging but here are those in the meantime!

Yeah, I will sort through these and add them to the opening posts. I agree that the office print isn't something I'd like to include here, even more so with Steve's signature on it. It's not related to any games anyway, so including it would feel inappropriate.
