It needed to be done.

  • The new cover art looks good. It's faithful to the original and it shows off the new art scheme.

    They couldn't have done it any differently lol.

    There's no massive clump of feathers sticking out of LeChuck's hat either.

    Edit: Speaking of the feather, am I the only one that looks like a crow crash-landed inside his hat?


    Edit 2: Was that intended? Because I'm sure I see a beak and an eye, and it is clearly a dead bird in the following piece of concept by Steve Purcell:

  • Yeah, I don't think the dead crow in his hat has ever been explained to me. But I like it.

    As do I, it just reflects LeChuck's (for want of better words) unfanciness, filthiness, carelessness and ruthlessness perfectly.

    Have you actually read the blog-post?

    Here, of course, is the comp for the final LeChuck's Revenge painting. Looks like I hadn't yet thought of the idea of the dead bird plume and what is Elaine doing there besides looking like a man? It appears I reversed the values of the clouds and sky for additional eeriness and tried punching up the phoney baloney lighting on the figures. All in all a handy exercise I guess.
    So it was something Purcell thought up after the concept. (or someone else did, but I doubt it was accidentally painted in ;) )

    Ah, thanks. For what it's worth, I prettymuch always read the blog post of a piece of artwork, but in this case I did not.

    Has anyone noticed that elaine is wearing guybrush's curse outfit?
    It's the same outfit she's wearing on the SMI cover.
  • It's similar, but not the same. Either way, it was just a silly observation.
  • You mean she's go two sets of white shirts with puffy arms, red bandana and sash, black vests and black pants? You must have some inside information about her wardrobe, I guess.
  • Whereas the vest in the original is a closed one, the one in the concept is open. As well as the fact that she's not wearing a bandanna around her neck in the concept either. I'm just saying it ain't the exact same. Chill a bit. I wasn't trying to be abrasive.
