Holy crap!



I guess this settles the "how big can I print these?"-debate...

That's the second biggest skateboard I've ever seen.

I like that wall, too

BTW, it doesn't look like my poster was used for that print, because there's some details in there mine doesn't have (like the grain around the beard) and of course the colors are different.

maybe it was projected and painted on the wall?

Unlikely, as it contains noise and dirt from the original... plus you can see the widths of paper used (so it has been printed to wallpaper, I'd say). Also I doubt a handpainted version would look exactly like the original (and this one does).

They might have used a sharpened (and edited) version of Plamdi's image (on which I've based my versions). The colors seem to match.

Here's two little somethings Mr. William Eaken sent to me today (click for full size):



Now, these are just snapshots taken with a digicam (off his original paintings), so the quality isn't the best. And while the "Fate of Atlantis"-one isn't as detailed as the clean-up job I've made, the "Rebel Assault II"-artwork should be the biggest version available of it. Although I wanted to stay clear of any "Star Wars"-related posters, I think this one is just too special to not be used (since it's probably the only actually painted SW game-cover... well, maybe aside from the first "Rebel Assault").

So, this is how the "Rebel Assault II"-poster might look like (click for big):



It's considerably less work than the Grim mural

Can someone tell me what the original source image is for the Star Wars themed Day of the Tentacle poster? Where did that come from?

That would be good info to add to the first post, for all the posters... were these box art? Actual posters that were ever produced? Does anyone collect the "originals" rather than the reproductions here?

It was on an issue of the Adventurer - the LucasArts catalogue that shipped in US copies of the games in the early 90s. See here

As I understand it, Laserschwert has reconstructed these images from hi-res scans of boxes and magazine ads, and some other sources in certain cases. I believe there were only official released posters for the first LucasArts games - Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (?), Loom (?) and the Secret of Monkey Island. Those posters are extremely rare! I've never even seen one for sale. Well, except the Maniac Mansion ones - but a few years ago, the LucasArts Store found a box of those from way back and put them on sale

Yeah, my main goal is to reconstruct the artworks themselves as cleanly as possible. I usually work from as many sources as possible (and necessary) to get the job done.

Most of the time the images are the box-artworks, with a few exceptions that come from ads, magazine covers or concept artwork. Some are even purely made up by me - like the normal DOTT-poster (since the original box-front only has Bernard and Purple on it) and of course the DOTT-SW poster in One Sheet style.

Regarding official posters: About a month ago a bunch of these turned up at eBay, to be exact "Fate of Atlantis", "Maniac Mansion", "Full Throttle" and "Monkey Island". I bid on all of them, but the prices went higher than I was willing to pay. I guess after all my versions are good enough for me most of the time (plus they are made without terrible stuff like that ugly 90s-pattern-frame around the original MI1-poster). I actually have the original "Fate of Atlantis" poster on my wall, so I'm good.

Oh yes, I forgot about Fate of Atlantis. There was a time, about ten years ago, when many copies of that poster were available on eBay. I remember buying one for a relatively low price The source was European which made me suspect forgery, but, to be honest, if it's a fake it's damn good and I don't care

I've added three versions of "Rebel Assault II" to the opening post.

They most certainly did! Have a look at the scratch marks present on my scan:



As for the detail, that's because I used the KIXX box primarily, although difficuilt to tell for that particular part it is significantly more detailed than the IBM box.



(same section from my IBM scan).

Nice to see people using these things... intelligently?

I've just realized that I haven't posted this here yet... my first official job for Telltale Games:



And a few close-ups (though these are still only at half size... the full-size poster is somewhat close to one sheet size):





I finally got to work a bit more on the "half pencil / half digital"-workflow I've used on my Narwhal-poster, although this was so much more work compared to Narwhal. It's a daunting task to mimic Struzan, but I've tried to at least keep the spirit of the original poster.

The workflow was similar to Narwhal though: Telltale hooked my up with the 3D models of Marty and the DeLorean, which I posed, remodeled, lit and rendered in 3dsmax. Those renderings became the basis for the pencil drawings, while everything else (background, flames, grain, more paint-overs) was done in Photoshop. I've created several custom brushes to recreate Struzan's spattery style from back then (it became a bit "cleaner" in the 90s and 00s), and was really glad to have my trusted Intuos4 tablet at my side during this (actually I've worked my normal job during the day, and workend on this during the night... it was brutal, but totally worth it!)

With a little luck, prints of this might be available at the Telltale store some day!

That's really amazing work you did there! Chapeau!

You've really come so close to Drew's style with this one, even more so than on the Narwhal piece.

"Official"? Nice! Is that the completed version? I really like it. Would have been interesting to see what Struzan would have come up with and done differently after all these years!

Okay guys, shortly (within a few weeks) I'll be making a printable resource page on my website that will include my M1 and M2 posters (but in slightly better quality then I have provided before) and additionally a "recreated M1 poster" - in other words, I'll be making a poster that looks almost identical to the real Monkey 1 poster. (The main difference will be that the Monkey1 logo cannot be moved to the correct position, nor do I intend to since it would make it near impossible to distinguish the two from low-res pictures). Then I will also be providing the manuals I created in 07 (possibly editied versions), and hopefully a new Madness manual too.

I've found a highly reccomended website for printing these things, and once I've checked it out hopefully I can also reccomend it.

Hey there.
I tested posterxxl in germany, and I'm not very happy with the result.
So I ordered the same Poster at link removed. Now I got a perfect print. :-) Maybe interesting for you. Greetings

Is there a chance anybody here from the US could buy this and have it scanned?

http://cgi.ebay.com/STAR-WARS-TIE-FI...-/400119516873



The seller only ships inside the US (and clearly states in the auction that he won't make any exceptions), so maybe someone could do this?

That's too bad. Would be nice to make a sweet double-feature artwork DVD case for both games.

I think for a DVD-case the box and manual scans would be good enough though

I (sadly) could not resist buying a Rebel Assault poster on eBay, so I'll scan that too when it comes.
