You can post original (low resolution) arts as welll as enhanced (high resolution) arts.

You can also post original covers as well as the cleaned versions of them.

This is absolutely wonderful !!! It's been barely a week since I posted some of these SSI game artworks on Twitter wondering how to find them in better quality! Thank you 10000 times !!! And please don't stop!!

 

And maybe one of you has this artwork in good quality? I would be very grateful ❤️

I have tried my hand at making a few for myself though they are not great since I rely on whatever I find over the internet which is not that good, so far I made the three Alone in the Dark and Kyrandia 3 but they are far from perfect (though they look great on print ;P).

I also recently made a small amount of posters from some of the old SSI and D&D games I found the art of at a really nice quality so I made them for the Eye of the Beholder 1-3 games, Al-Qadim, Pool of Radiance and 2 for Ravenloft and I really like how they came out.

I mostly wanted to display the original art and not the cropped versions used on some of the covers since I loved the art but those covers were kind of ugly, but I made a frame to simulate the feel of the original box a bit with the titles (some with a different font) and I added the much needed artist credits.

You can find them here if you are interested in those:

This is how they look if you don't want to browse the link.

Hey GFX, your Heretic art is very good! but it still could need a little rework on the top of the cape.
