Ooooh, true, true. I was assuming that if they'd ganked somebody's art, they probably weren't clearing it with LucasArts, but I suppose they could totally do both.

FWIW, IANAL, but I suspect Laserschwert would have options. Just because you don't have the rights to profit off your work, I'm not sure that means somebody who holds the rights does. Prolly more trouble/expense than it's worth for anything more than a shame campaign, tho.

 

Also I could be completely talking out my ass.

 

Craig has already confirmed to me that it's not licensed merch, but going after them is like decapitating Hydras.

 

I'm still in contact with them though, and they are still trying to come up with proof of their Mobygames-based source (which isn't possible). Best quote from them:

Either way, if you believe this has happened, how can we make this right for you?

 

Surely the words of an innocent man.

Hey there, as far as I know, there's no logo free version of the MI2:SE cover.

 

I did some curde compositing for my soundtrack cover with the material I had. It's very far from perfect (som blur here and there etc.) but for me it worked with a logo. Maybe it's enough for you too.

 

I was actually looking at yours and figured it had to exist if you were able to make your album cover. It's really well done I can't really tell that you've basically erased the logo.

Thanks! I really wouldn’t advise to use it without any logo though.

 

A good example are the sails. Some start very sharp at the bottom and get totally blurry suddenly, because of the  different picture quality of the material I found. And some of the ropes disappear in midair…🙃

Then in the sky I just put in some clouds of a CMI background as a filler. I think it works quite well, but depending on the use one had to really put more work in this (which I was too lazy at some point, tbh 😅).

 

But as I said: with a logo on and for digital use it’s totally fine, I think.

I've been actively looking for the original author of these 3 illustrations for Alone in the Dark for several weeks now... But I can't find it. Does anyone know anything by chance?

I wonder if these were made by three different illustrators because there seems to be a different signature on every poster.

 

In the AitD 1 Poster, on the lower left side, there seems to be the name Eagle, but I am not entierly sure. That name doesn't show up in the manual.

 

In the AitD 2 Poster, the name CALL can be seen below the steps on the right.

In the game's manual, you can find the name Greg Call under "Special Thanks".

 

And the AitD 3 Poster: I'm not sure if that is a signature or my brain is misinterpreting something, but below the right boot of Carnby, there seem to be the letters GB engraved on the floor. Sadly I can't find the full name in the manual.

Marius.

Indeed, here is the results after a short investigation (on twitter :)): 

AITD 1 : Bruce Eagle

AITD 2 : Greg Call

AITD 3 : Still not sure...
