    You will love this one UHD (6K) artwork from Dimitri Nicomanis. A recreation of a classic 1989 LEGO Pirates promotional shot. This was part of a shoot for issue 10 of the Brick Fanatics Magazine. Canon EOS 750D EF35mm f/2 IS USM

    Yes, I saw that. You can email me files to I have a few projects going on right now. Probably it will take some time before I have some free time but here is an example of 1989 cover restoration plus colour grading and text replacement I did last year (full resolution image is linked). Basically this is what I do (and more :) for a living. I haven't seen a cover. So my plan is to draw one :) Still I need some time Arrr :)

    Yes, of course! It would be great. If there is any other reference that can be shared it would be very helpful. Yes, it was mentioned in the post. I have all four. I will take a look. As of now, I didn't notice any specific comic panel in books. Aye! I did. It was mentioned by @Sadie Meowsalot : A bit off-topic from what we were just discussing earlier, but given this topic is intended for the general discussion of this sort of stuff I thought I'd share anyway. Recently I contacted Michèle Lecreux, one of the developers for the old obscure French Pirates comic LEGO LES PIRATES et la malle au trésor developed and published in conjunction with the French monthly P'tit Loup magazine by Disney, and posed some questions to her about its development. (For reference, you can find scans of the comic on this page, and it should look like this) Nothing too groundbreaking, but I figured it was worth sharing anyway: "I am glad to send you my answers. Let me know if you need other informations. Best regards, Michèle 1) Were there more mini comics like this that you or anyone else at P'tit Loup developed, or only the one? P’tit Loup magazine published within each issue a mini booklet about a playful theme. The booklet was sometimes sponsored. That was the case with LEGO. 2) How did development of this comic begin - that is, how did it originate and from where? In collaboration with the advertising department, we would rather whenever possible publish games or contests than simple advertising pages. I was then responsible for all the Disney-licensed products for French magazines when LEGO launched its “pirates” product line. We proposed to LEGO, as we often did with advertisers, to sponsor a mini booklet. LEGO accepted the idea, and we chose the option one fotonovela + one practical work section “create your own board game using LEGO bricks”. 3) Were there any other LEGO comics planned that didn't make it to release, or any story elements, such as scripts, concepts, models, illustrations that were cut or unfinished? No other projects of any kind were designed in collaboration with LEGO. 4) How much involvement did LEGO have in the development process, and how? We did all the design work (script, storyboard, game designing, photo shooting and editing). We then asked LEGO, of course, for their approval of the issue before publication but they were not involved in the process."- Michèle Lecreux @CyregO another challenge Arrr :)

    Arrr fantastic reference! Unfortunately, OCR didn't return any good results :( There is always a problem with comic books. Although the text fields were correctly recognised, the exported text got corrupted.

    Unfortunately, I don't know. I think there was no transcription but I can OCR sans to extract original text :) Arrr! Thank you, Pirate! It will take some time but I want to be precise with the original 6255.

    Thank you Classic Pirates! Arrr! [WIP] At first I used green tones for the main Pirate character in the bottom left corner. However, I noticed this Pirate in 6255 (yellow bandana). It was a very small scene. He wears a red striped shirt. Now colours are set to "Pirate Red/Black Stripes Shirt".

    Sure! French version would be a superb addition. @Piraten was about to proof the English one. I have to check out your post :)
  11. Arrr Pirates! First of all, nice to meet you all! It's my first post. Just to introduce myself. I'm admin of Redbeard's Cove FB page and Redbeard's Cove Shipmates group. I wanted to share and keep you updated with the most recent project: ?????? ?? ???? - (6255 sequel) - colourization and DTP prepress. I have already set a proper format (the same as 6255 comic book). I have optimized scans and cleared JPEG artefacts etc. Recently I have posted an article about @Sadie Meowsalot: Now I'm in the process of colourization. It will take some time but, in my opinion, it's important to revive this legacy: Current status preview [WIP] Additional translations will be included. English by @Runamuck , Danish (English proofing) by @Piraten and German by Mike Weißflog
