Hello guys, i'm doing a 4players cabinet (it is pretty much finished, i'm at painting stage) and for the theme we are going for MK. Street fighter was not so WAF...

I'm missing the side art, the rest i was able to vectorize and modify. I can share my vector files if someone wants them.

For the side art i've got the raster from 05SRT4, and thanks very much for that. I just vectorize it and I think i've got a lot of work in front to me.

If somebody have a vector decent file please share. I'll print it in China (where I live now). Otherwise I'll work on vectorized 05SRT4 raster and try to have an acceptable vector image with the halftones and all. It is not going to be a professional job though.

I could buy the printouts but 200 bucks seems quite a lot to me. I already expended 1700EUR on my cabinet (the 29" monitor costed 300EUR brand new from Weiya).

thanks and bye

Not sure it can get any better than this. Most collectors are very picky when it comes to artwork as am I. You can post up what you want of course. Not to be mean though not that much quality work comes from china as I also have a friend in Shenzhen who witnesses it firsthand.

Thanks for the reply Manic. You know, in China everything is possible. They can do the worst sometimes but also the best. All the Apple products are manufactured in China these days....
For the moment I've sourced the control panel components and coin door locally (as the monitor, already mentioned). I acquiesce I might be me less demanding on the quality of the printings than an average arcade fan. Time will tell what I'll get.

For now the limitation to the quality are on in my skills on illustrator that are pretty fresh (started 3 days ago).

Have somebody had any success in printing this from jpg?

The final photoshop of this project is not available and you can only buy the finished product from Rich at his website thisoldgame.com

You are right a lot of this stuff is made in China but under strict quality control which I highly doubt compares to a printer there. Even then the name brand stuff from china isn't that great either. If you want high quality work from a guy this has a love for this field then I would just fork out the $200 and call it a day. But if your not worried about your work or the professionalism of the printing go right ahead. Whatever floats your boat. =)

Maybe it is not necessary but i'll do it any way. Of course I meant no prejudice for the printing services you guys of this community work with. I do believe they are probably quite professional and passionate.

Personally I do not value that printout for myself as much as the hardcore fans do.

I'll reproduce myself the vector for the dragon and try to keep johnny's raster. It is going to be a hard process, probably the outcome will not be fantastic, and in the end i might find myself paying more than 200 bucks in China with a "cheaper" product. The discovery will be the prize of my adventure as it has been since the beginning of the arcade journey.

Thank you all guys and I'll keep you posted on my progress.

UPDATED -Darker Fade on Top, Brighter MIDWAY and also Brighter / Changed contrast on dragon and Cage.

Hey guys I finished the Artwork,
It took a minute only because I was using my wife's laptop. It didn't play well with Photoshop and such a large file.

Here are the 2 small samples.

I was able to clean up some of the washing stains mainly around the tail. I tried my best to fix the indents or creasing on the dragons belly. I made the MIDWAY a solid color and changed out the R trademark with a cleaner one. Also went through and cleaned up any small scratches or dents.
To make the other side I just flipped the image and pasted the MIDWAY facing the right way.


These ended up being bigger files then I thought. so the download file is over 160mb I think. I zipped both of them using Winrar. Im new to mediafire so let me now if you have any problems with the download.

The amount of work that went into this artwork is rediculous. I'd love to see the price your local print shop would charge for labor and printing and still come out nothing like what is being offered to you. You won't be getting the files any time soon. Plain and simple. If you don't like the price. Don't buy it.

Hello!
I have done the same work described here with Mortal Kombat 2 arcade art ... because the arts offered in all websites have too much black on it, lost the clouds details ...

Here is my work:


Details of halftone on Raiden's face:


Making the sideart mk II logo on Illustrator:


The final print:


A detail of the logo:


Besides, I bought a MK4 arcade machine to restore, so, I planned to add all the Mortal Kombat games with a multi jamma adapter. So I had to add a "Run" button to the MK2 control panel:


The final CPO (above in MK2 style, the second one in MK4 style, i mean, the buttons distance are different in both machines):


Thanks!

Not bad! But your colors and gradients need to be a bit darker. Should look more like this...

Thanks!

The red / orange gradient was made that way because the art I downloaded from a website looks like that ... I couldn't compare it with a real machine :(

But It's not a great problem ... anyway, the final print looks awesome!

Now I'm restoring an MK1 cabinet ...

I've decided to try tackling this a different way. I broke out my handheld scanner and since my machine isn't faded, I'm going to scan it, clean up the files, and see how they turn out. I think this will be a much better final product in the end. That way it will be JUST the logos. I don't want to mess with the entire side art. This whole endeavor was supposed to be just about the logo refreshment anyway. Gotta let my scanner charge but this should turn out great. Stay tuned...







Raw scan...





This is soooo much better. These will have the 'pattern' in them vs. the other ones don't...

Cool. First time since 1996 that I can see that logo so close ... all the arts available on internet have those halftone points invisible ... my arts were re constructed by memory :)

Now, I'm working on the MK1 CPO art:

Here some details:

This is really amazing. Do you have the xomplete side art at all ?Im in need of replacing mine and the ones on google are all rubbish. This machine scan would be perfect
