Remember that great trailer Blur did before MI:SE2 was released.. here are pictures of the modelsheets they used, Hirez and in great detail, and size.. amazing.... I love this stuff... I wish there would have been more characters in that trailer.

    Somehow I've managed to stay unaware of that trailer until now. I looked it up, and loved it! How have I not seen this before?

    Thanks for posting those pics, as well as unwittingly making me aware of such a great trailer.
  • I added the trailer to my original post in case others have never seen it... I wish Blur would make a MI animated movie like that... I would pay good money to see that...
  • Awesome, I haven't seen these big renderings before. VERY nice!
  • Hey, wow! Funny, I watched that trailer again just yesterday and thought how awesome it must have been if the whole game looked like this..

    I hadn't either.. I saw them while doing an image search on google and stumbled on the blog of the artist responsible for it...

    I had not previously noticed some of the details before.. Like the Skull on the back of Guybrush's coat.. and I like that you can actually see the velvety texture of the coat.
  • I never noticed that thats a dead bird in lechucks hat before, i knew there were feathers, just not the whole bird :P

    Look closely at the feathery bit of LeChuck's hat on the Monkey Island 2 boxart, and you can see that it's a dead crow.

    Also, I would do terrible, terrible things for a Monkey Island movie animated like that trailer.
  • Its true it was on the original box art.... BUT many people who played that game probably had the Monkey Mania disc packed with other Lucasarts adventure games.. on that disc the CDs hole made it difficult to see what it was supposed to be.. and it didn't come with the box..

    I embarrassingly had been quite familiar with the box art but had not noticed the croaked crow until only a few years ago when doing some fan art.. I am happy to say I included the crow..

    But do not always in my fan art.

    He just switched between his Secret/Revenge/Curse forms in Escape iirc.
