Another thank you here for the excellent posters.

Just curious - do you have any plans for a LOOM poster?

I'm guessing that, like with any other posters, it's all about the right source material. If you have a 600+ DPI scan of the Loom poster, post it in this thread.

We're still waiting for the covers of Gobliiins and Goblins 3.

The "Zombies"-scan is perfect, I'll work on that too. The same with "Goblins", but right now I have other things to do.

"Loom" is still on the list, of course, but I could need a 600+ dpi scan of an undamaged Loom-box... I've only got scans of rather scratched ones.

Take your time. I'm just glad I could help out. I've already downloaded almost all your work and anything new you do is a bonus.

Unfortunately I can't help you here, so let's hope someone owns a nice copy and a scanner.

Here's the result, not THAT bad, imho:

Haven't kept my eye on this thread for a while. Thanks Morden for the Zombies scan.

I can't find an app in Linux to open jpeg2000 files.
Any suggestions? Change the extension to something else maybe? I already tried .jpg.

Thanks ezekiel.
I had already tried Gimp with no success. Apparently it has basic support. Maybe a plug-in is needed.
I'll download Blender and give it a shot.
Thanks for the link.

Edit.
Irfanview with plug-ins under Wine does the job.

This is not exactly high-rez and not exactly the box art. It's very nice though.

Yeah, that is nice. It would be pretty easy to make it into vector graphics and blow it up. I might look at it when I have the time if nobody beats me to it. Some color would do it justice too.

edit: I take the 'easy' part ack, it's a bit smaller then I originally thought. I'll still have a looksee. plus, I see he is intending to make available for sale, so distributing it online might not be a good idea.

All three of them look great:

I've already tried vectorizing them a while ago, and they really are too low-res for a decent large-size print. Plus, since Eric is selling his art, I don't want it to be downloadable. Not in my thread anyway.

They all look great, but the first one is sold out :( I'd want all three next to each other on my wall.
