Hi-Res Character Pics
« on: March 12, 2003, 07:58:13 pm »
I know they have to be out there, but I'm having issues locating them.  What I'm looking for is some hi res pics of Pacman, Ms. Pacman, Mario, Link, Dirk, Qbert and a few others.  Anyone have access to these or know where I can find some clean pics?

Thanks,
-Zinfari

Here are a few that I've tried to clean up.  I hope to work on some more in the future, but time is a bit limited right now.

Thanks JQ those definately help.  

SirPoonga where did you find the frogger image off of the Unclean artwork section?  If so that's not the frogger Image I'm looking for.  If there is another one on the site let me know, but I didn't see it.

Thanks,
-Zinfari

No, the frogger off the sideart section.

Here is all I see under the sideart section.... I didn't download all of them, but none of them look like Frogger from their name.

hmmm, you are right.  Where did I get this frogger from.  It's the frogger from the marquee or sideart though.

so, that leads us to this question.  Does anyone have a set of arcade characters in Adobe Illustrator format?

I'm using the tutorial frostillicus put up to try and make myself some art.  It really is a great tutorial.

caykroyd:  I have a bunch of individual characters on my CP.  No frogger, but a lot of the others.  Some will resize well... others not.

See the below thread for the file.

That's exactly what I am looking for.  Thanks smitty.  I will work on additional characters.  Maybe I'll get them to saint to post in the artwork section.

cool   :)

some of those are screen captures -- use illustrator's autotrace on them (adjusting the pixel preference) and they should size up nicely.  I didn't bother because I only needed them smallish.
