"Kustom" Mortal Kombat 1 front art (link RE-ADDED)
« on: August 07, 2014, 01:37:26 pm »
My front art is faded, busted, and disgusted. looks like this (before and after):


I decided to make new art from scratch.

Major differences between real art and mine:
Says MORTAL KOMBAT instead of MIDWAY
I added a yellow box behind the game title (a nod to MKII)
Made the 2 dragons face in like MKII, always hated that the 2 dragons faced the same way on factory art.

here's how it looks:


Here is the link to the PSD file:

if you use them, all I ask is that you post a picture of it on the cab :)

Very cool Malenko. Pretty soon you'll need to start a thread offering your services for artwork.

I was working on a custom marquee as well, but I dont feel like vectorizing the dragons that wrap around the letters. Other than that, its done

What software did you use to recreate these photos?!  I have heard people using some such as paint.net, and photoshop.  You seem to have a good grasp on this software!

What software did you use to recreate these photos?! 
Dragon logos done in Illustrator, the rest done with Adobe Photoshop. I have no formal training but Ive been messing with the software for a very long time.

I use to mess around with photoshop a few ear back, I got fairly proficient at it!  I would have to reteach myself the whole program again.

That looks great Malenko!  Not that it's any of my beeswax but why you no have links anymore?

gist is one bean bag kept PMing me telling me putting them up was illegal, that I was "distributing copyrighted works".  Honestly though the attached image up there is totes printable,  I just had the PSDs up so other people could edit it to what they wanted.  Same goes for my open ice art.

I like your integration of the moves list...very clever Sir!
And I agree, I think the inward facing dragons is much better!

thats just the repro CPO on top of the CP box.  I also have a repro instruction card printed up and in place. if I remember I'll snap a pic when I get home.
