Hi folks! New here
Many thanks to this community for bringing such awesome artwork to printable size and the careful restoration needed on these posters. They all look amazing!
I have a few questions regarding the printing.
1) How have people printed them? Paper or Canvas? Which do you prefer?
2) I live in the UK and was going to order from PosterXXL. Are others here happy with the print results from this online store?
3) Does anyone resize them before sending to print or are Laserschwerts awesome posters fine to send "as is" to posterxxl?

Cheers for your help guys

The Adventure-Treff is now hosting all of my posters, and only one of them "The Book of Unwritten Tales" isn't posted here, I guess.
Thanks anyway, and keep up the great work man!

Just reporting back. My first poster arrived from PosterXXL. Delivered safely to London UK in excellent packaging (poster wrapped front and back in soft tissue paper. Then inserted into a poster tube. Then the poster tube had a cardboard box around that!). The print quality using Laserschwerts posters is excellent. PosterXXL havent fiddled with the colours and the free print size (30x40) looks very sharp.
Im going to buy three more. Indy Atlantis, Sam'n Max and DOTT. Then frame the posters and mount in my room.
At a later date (When i have the doubloons) I might purchase some canvas prints. Untill then the framed posters look classy
Many thanks again Laserschwert. Ill post some pics when they are all printed and mounted.

Hi there,
just wanted to show u all my room with the recently printed Indy poster. Size is 80x60 cm, and was framed using white lightweight cardboard. Thanks to everyone who put the effort into doing this. Keep up the good work!! It was 21€ (~30$), Print+frame in a local printing store.

Hope you like it. Greetings from Spain.

Hey guys!

Just walked to extend my thanks to all the peoples who have given me this awesome ultra hi res classic art.

As a thank you, here is all the art I could wrap my hands around from 'The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition' that I could grab from E3.

http://www.subelement.com.au/SoMI-SE.rar

I hope you guys enjoy, there are some really beautiful pieces in there. Feel free to mirror the file, infact it's probably best knowing you all.

Kind regards,

SubElement

Hey guys, welcome to the forums. That's a sweet looking poster Sk-F, and I appreciate you putting in the effort to collect together the pics SubElement

I don't mean to put a dampener on things, but all of those images, and some other ones, are already available in zip format from the LucasArts site though.


You mean the way the sea stays steady as a rock and the buildings keep washing up and down? Yes I thought that was odd.

69_bighead (the Monkey Head) is interesting. Notice how the Sam & Max statue has been replaced with a Purple Tentacle statue?

And yaaaay! You can still ask about Loom!

So I hear Steve Purcell is doing some new artwork for Tales! I wonder when we'll get to see that?

Hey, any chance you could re-upload this one? The Rapidshare link is dead...
Thanks.

Also, printed out posters for MI 1 & 2 just today. Thanks again for those high res files; they look absolutely awesome.

I've started one, but there's really not much material to touch up the text areas. It'll still take a while I guess.

I've updated the opening post with a few non-LucasArts posters (including "Simon the Sorcerer").
Waaaah, awesome!

Didn't visit the thread for some time thanks to work, but I'm so going to order some prints tonight. Thank you again so much for your work on all those awesome posters!

As a nice surprise Bill Tiller has just provided me with his original Photoshop-file for his "Curse of Monkey Island"-artwork:



I've added 3 versions of the artwork to the opening post. Enjoy!

Wow, that's really awesome Laserschwerts.
Bill Tiller personally sending his artwork. We're really making a good impression as a fan community!

Well, I had to beg him a while :P

Actually he was on board as soon as I told him about the poster-project. But it took a while, as he had to search through all his backup DVDs... as it turned out, it was on an old PC that he hasn't been using for a while. He's quite busy now with "Ghost Pirates of Vujoo Island", so it came as a surprise to me finding the file in my inbox.

Do you have any plans of making a SMI poster without the logo?

A sketch of the MI1 cover art was posted on this blog:

http://spudvisionblog.blogspot.com/

I think it is Purcell's official blog.

It is, he says he plans on showing the new art for ToMI in stages on his blog. Which is really cool cuz we will get to see the artwork come to life before our eyes.

That thing is excellent - don't suppose you'd like to scan it for Laserschwert?

I noticed that Spaff used a different MI2 image for his canvas. (#115, page 3)

The image he used is bigger, look at this comparison:



The left one is a little wider, but it looks cropped at the bottom and top.

Laserschwert, did you make the right one as well? If you did can you please upload it?

Thank you

Too bad it doesn't have the same high quality as yours.

BTW, do you think you could do a no-logo version of the SOMI poster?

Hmmm... something weird here - on the Bounty pack box there's more to LeChuck than is seen on the MI2 box... which doesn't make sense because Purcell painted it as it is. See what I mean here - the rail of the ship isn't there. This image extends to his left leg on the underside of the box as well. Odd!

Yeah, but it looks more like a half-ass clone-brush job.

It's not that easy without any material for the stuff that's under the logo:

If we are lucky Purcell might post some more pictures on his blog.
