vector wip.
« on: October 27, 2003, 03:24:44 am »
As there is more persons involved in "vectorisation"
I suggest we use this thread as a central place for vector Work In Progress

why ?
1) just to know who is working on what. to avoid us to work on the same art and to conflict.
2) to encourage cooperation.
3) to call for detailled pics, closeup of a given art.
4) to let people known what's going on

suggestion for submission.

One post per person.
    * each post should be removed when the vector art is finished and uploaded to the vector library
      If a post stay to long (say 3 month) without being updated it will be reported to admins for
      "a deletion request"

    * a post must contain a brief description of what kind of art will be traced

    * a post may contain requests for help.

    * a post may contain request for material but only related for the work in progress
      non related request should go to the adquate forum with the adequate title

    * in case of abandon (real life impose some constraints, but call for help before leaving) the work
      should be marqued as left, and a link to the current file should be given in order to allow his
      continuation

    * modification and update of the post during the tracing process is encouraged.

    * if no image of the art to be traced is available online, a small image may be attached to the post
      but it is better to point to an online source (either by using the image tags or by providing an URL).

    * the same would apply for any image used in order to display the status and evolution of the work

I'm working on the Centipede marquee.   I moved my original post to this thread.

This thing is a detailed monster.



Edit: Updated images to most recent version since I was posting them all over the place today... :)

I've been holding off on working on it for a while.  I'm waiting to see if they can fix some stuff in Sodipodi.   If not then I guess I'll head back over to Illustrator land...  ::)

WIP - Galaxian side art. Awaiting detailed pictures from the guy who requested it.

EDIT (March 2):Still haven't heard from the guy who requested that I do this. If anyone else can provide some detailed pics I'd appreciate it. Otherwise this one might get shelved.

EDIT (March 8 ): Got some usable reference pictures. I started a new thread to post my progress:

http://www.arcadecontrols.org/yabbse/index.php?board=13;action=display;threadid=16905

I'll post again in here when it's finished.


Edit yet again. I totally forgot to update this page. The Galaxian artwork was finished by someone else (I forget who) and is now available to download at the artwork library.

I have purchased a TwoBits kickplate and I still need to update the kickplate and sideart on the archive based on the differences I spotted between the vectorization that I uploaded now and this piece of artwork. Most notably the colors are different (much darker than I assumed). I hope to get the proper colors for the CP since I'm still not sure. Unfortunately I can't find a Galaga cab anywhere in the netherlands so I can only go on the colors I see in photograps and scans.

I'm still working on the Galaga Bezel. I redid part of the work I lost after my hard disk crash, but I still have a long way to go. I guess I'm at 30% right now.

I'm using photo's from General Zod. an upload on the artwork archive and some scans from I'm sorry to say forgotten who put them up. I need all three together to get an accurate picture of how it is supposed to look.

Who is that?

It looks like a character from the "Top Cat" cartoon. Anyone remember that one? Classic stuff.

Do we want to post non-arcade artwork also?
I did the Nextel Nascar logo, not sure if anyone would want it?...

As you can see, also working on players numbers for the CP. I tried tucking in the numbers behind the yellow player stripe, but you you not quickly tell what the number was...

I don't know, someone might use it for arcade stuff. Why not? As long as the library as a whole doesn't stray toooo far. I mean, right now we already have a vector drawing of the smurfs, why not nascar?

Any preferred formats I can convert my vector image to so I can upload it to the vector library? It is currently a (rather large) Microsoft Visio file.

Created Bald Bull.
It's a vector version of a bitmap image.
Took a while, but came out pretty good.

I was going to widen the base of the picture so you could see the rest of his gloves and body, but decided not to.  
Created for "Kill Bill" Marquee.

In the process of adding to the vector library.

The bezel is being vectorized by MAMu_ using the old MAME artwork and photographs for guidance. I'm hoping he will finsh it soon.

Could anyone kindly vectorize the Ultracade logo? the multi-color one where it's like orange-yellow-red-green-blue or whatever it is but it's multicolored.

I really need that logo without the TM or the ultracade girl

I'm having a stab at sideart for Kangaroo.

If anyone can accurately match colours (e.g. take a pantone swatch book to your cab or something), that would help.

I think Paige uploaded some reference pics to the arcade art library a long time ago. Maybe you already have those... they might be useful.

Maybe that means he has an actual cabinet...

I'm sort of half-heartedly working on the Gauntlet CPO at the moment.

Have matched the fonts and done most of the typography anyway.

Jakobud's measurements seem to be out - if I distort the image so that the buttons are in the positions he's measured them, then the text at the bottom of the CP that's half-missing in the source scan on the art library would actually fall off the bottom of the panel, and I know it doesn't, and even has a bit of blank space underneath it, hence the button/stick placement is too low - anyone have a real cab they can check?

I'm currently working on my control panel overlay. It's a repeat pattern of numerous company logos. While most logos are already floating around, I'll be adding at least:

old Konami, newer Taito, late-80's Technos, Irem, old "round e" Sega/Gremlin

They may not be that difficult, but if anyone know of any of these that are done already, let me know.

Anyone know where I can find a clean Cinematronics logo (any of them)?

Once I get my own stuff wrapped up maybe I can take requests.
Brevity is not my strong suit.

There are logos on the flyers for some of their games here:
http://www.arcadeflyers.com/?page=flyerdb&manu=38

Some of the scans there have logos high-res enough to be traced as a vector, even if not really good enough for printing as they stand (e.g. on the Zzyzzyxx flyer).

Rohan has loaned me some art to scan / trace. I'll be getting scans & photographs first. Once I get the scans done, I dont' know how fast I can get to everything, so anybody with an interest in helping let me know.

I have the following VERY good samples. I actually have them in my possession, rather than just pics, etc like usual.

Centipede Side Art (!)
Mario Brothers CPO
DK Jr. CPO
DK Jr. Bezel
DK CPO
Tron Backglass see-thru insert (needs correction, not tracing)
Astro Invader CPO by stern (cool)

I also have a  pile of marquees on disk, which I've not gone through yet.

I didn't realize there are already very high quality cleaned scans of the DK and DK Jr. control panels available for tracing...If you would rather work with those than from scratch, shoot me an e-mail.
