And HERE's the version of the "Neverhood"-poster slightly cleaned up by me.

It's still a little blurry, and I guess I'll make a sharper version of it sometime.

Edit:
By the way, Steven Chorney has replied to my mail, and he will try to send me a scan of his "The Dig"-artwork when he has a little more time.

I think I'm gonna print an A3-sized poster of this, it really looks great!
By the way, do you guys know of any hi res concept art from Steve Purcell? I really like all the concept art that I have seen from Monkey Island, but it is always quite a low resolution

I have already tried to upscale that Purcell artwork a bit, but I'll wait until that eBay-auction is a couple of days or weeks older, so that no one feels ripped off (especially not Steve). There are two more Purcell-concepts in the "Rogue Leaders" book, but one of them (that painting of Wally's ship) is a double spread, and impossible to scan.

Uhmmm... This ís the work that Laserschwert is doing.
This is the topic he opened to show his work.
It's kind of weird to say that some fan is doing this, while it's his thread.

Greetings all! Haven't been here in a while but I like the new poster editions that have been added!

Anyways, sorry if this is slightly off topic from the current discussion, but Laserschwert, you wouldn't happen to know what the font is that is used on the Loom box for "Lucasfilm Games Presents" and "A Fantasy Adventure..."? (I think it's actually the same as the Simon the Sorcerer font as well) Thanks a ton!

Well, you're lucky, because I had look it up as well for my Loom-poster. It's Uncial ATT (be sure to get the right one, as there are several versions of it... you can identify the correct version by the "y"... you can see on the Loom-poster how it's supposed to look). With a little googling you'll surely find a download.

An update to that amazing Grim Fandango mural that was posted a few threads back. Came across this link -- seems like someone took the recreation into their own hands at a very large scale. Amazing!

Thanks! It's in a narrow hallway and impossible to take a decent photo of, but it's about 20 feet long to give you an idea of scale.

And it looks really cool. Too bad it's too big to be photographed.

I've tried to ignore this thread for a long time because I knew what would happen. And it has - I have finally succumbed, I'm getting a LeChucks Revenge poster printed. Great work Laserschwert, the posters really are fantastic.

I eagerly look forward to Grim Fandango posters. Those would be awesome.

My projects never have an ETA... most times they're closer to not arriving at all.

Hi! Those posters are great, thank you Laserschwert! I'm looking forward to the Grim Fandango one
I did some minimalistic (mini)poster from Monkey Island. I don't think they are good for print, but here they are.

Very nice N3mo! I really like all of those. It's a shame they're not higher resolution, for printing purposes, but they're definitely excellent work

I'm really sorry because I started them for fun, I didn't think that someone would really print them. I'm not a pro and the originals are 1130x1546 pixels (200 dpi). I still got the .psd files (no vector), if someone is able to make them good for printing, can pm me (yes, almighty Laserschwert, I'm talking to you )

(Thank you all, by the way)

Sure, if you could upload the PSD-files somewhere, I'll see what I can do.

Hi folks, not been here in a while but recently acquired a new pic to hang alongside the fantastic work of Laserschwert, the community and of course Mr Purcell.

http://twitpic.com/1ipnih


Bought from the Telltale Games store and framed in Teddington UK.
(Cost of framing is a little nuts but I think I managed a balance of budget frame that still looks like tarnished gold, it even has green flecks around the edges which was algae and rust from the ocean... in my imagination lol)

Thanks again everyone

Hey that looks awesome, I just bought a cheap plastic frame for mine, but I really like how the wood frame looks on it.

I noticed that you got the officially signed one as well

Any way of getting a version of this more suitable for printing?
http://www.theawesomeevery.com/Jumbo...TributeL72.jpg
Or will I be able to print it? It's at a lower resolution and DPI than the ones showed here, but I don't really understand that yet, so it might just be suitable for printing, some clarification would be appreciated

Other than that, I just want to say that I love your other work Laserschwert! Gonna print some soon, and definitely looking forward to some Grim Fandango stuff!

That would probably print up pretty decent. General rule of thumb (at least according to most printers) is that 100 DPI will produce a quality image when printed, although I'm sure there are people out there who swear by no less than 200 or 300, but I guess it's all personal preference.

Basically it works like this: 100 DPI is 100 Dots Per Inch, so that when printed, 100 Dots (or pixels in this case) will be squeezed into 1 inch of space on the paper. Every 100 pixels in the image is equivalent to 1 inch of space on paper. So in the case of your image which is 1912x2475 pixels, at 100 DPI it would be printed to a size of 19.12" x 24.75" (just divide the image width and height by 100 and that will tell you how many inches it will be when printed).
200 DPI (and anything else for that matter) is the same thing, but you have to divide by 200, which would result in a print that is smaller.

Does this help? I'm usually not that great at explaining things in words and usually just do it in pictures instead, hah. To put it simple, if you're content with a (roughly) 19" x 24 3/4" printout, that picture would be just fine then.

If you do print it, make sure that the image is 100 DPI, most imaging programs will let you change the DPI, so if it's not, you should be able to just change it.

I understood everything up until the part where you said that the image had to be 100 DPI.
Right now the image is 72 DPI and Irfanview tells me that translates to 67x87 cm which would only need a bit of cropping to fit a A1 poster, is there a special reason it has to be 100 DPI, and if so why are the other posters here in 200 DPI?

Well, it doesn't have to be 100 DPI, but anything under that will look blocky and "pixley" when it gets printed. The other posters here are 200 DPI and higher because they will look even better when printed (they will have more dots per every inch when it gets printed).

It might be alright at 72 DPI, although I have never printed anything with that resolution before so I can't guarantee it will look amazing. Maybe someone else can chime in on this?

I've always felt that you shouldn't get below 150dpi for poster printing.

Take your time, it's a great poster and I'd love to that on my wall, but I will probably print some of your others before it, can't wait for it

I think I'll show this one of here too.



I took the scan from Surfing the Highway. It's great sitting at my desk in my student room now!
The right one is from the Marx Brothers, nothing Lucasartsy though.
