Since i have a temporary control panel on my Crazy kong, and that there are no vector files yet for this,
i decided to start on the vectorisation of the Crazy Kong CPO.

in order to match the holes of the CP i measured everything first..




Carefully measure every thing i need to make refference coordinates  Wink




After that noted all the measurements on a simple sketch.




Time for Illustrator..
As you can see in the scan of the original CP, this can really use some touchup  Tongue




The scan that Bela made or me was a little better , but also i do not like the colours..




Time to be creative again, and search for some sources..
found the instruction card, and hey thats almost what im looking for..




Lets take a closer look..
Thats the same pic, only in mirror..




Also found a PDF Vector file of this instruction card, lets hope this has the right colours as well..

The PDF was not exactly in the shape when i put it on top of the scan, so i decided to ajust it..
A few guidelines will do the trick  Grin



Mario is finished, and looks great if you ask me..
On top of black he is perfect to me !




In this moment im fiddling around a bit with the stars and griders...



More to come....

What a dedicated and precise work you're doing there, Etienne.
Your CK resto threads are really interesting to follow.
Let me know if I can help with the bezel (as we talked about earlier of maybe splitting the job with Falcon NL)?

Thanks Chris!

about the bezel..
Thats what i PM-ed a while ago..
I was already wondering how the progress is going..  Wink

The bezel files are on my FTP and you guys have accounts there
i thought you two would talk to eachother who does what ?

Anyway , it s great that you guys want to help with this !
And ofcourse, please make a topic with "[Vectorising]" in the artwork area  Roll Eyes

the bezel is not for me, but for Bela..
his bezel is broken, mine is in good shape thanks god..

it will be nice though to have a complete set of Arts from Zaccaria Crazy kong in vector format.

Thanx guys, ill need your support...

This will be the next challenge:



this is the best sourcepic i could find  Undecided

I did already some "resolution boosting"  Grin
Its a little better, but still will be difficult..
If anybody has a better pic, i'm here  Wink



And i hope chris or falcon will do the bezel soon because this looks simular:



but i am not always behind my laptop  Wink

If you want it to be exactly the same, you have no choice but to zoom in really hard and trace every little spot.

If you don't mind approximation, download an illustrator paint splatter brush shape from somewhere like deviantart.com and draw with that.

 Cry...

Well a man has got to do what a man has got to do !  Wink

So i started with some different tracing options, and continue to manual ajust it as far as possible.
its not finished yet , but im progressing..



and to make it less boring, i also worked on the rest for a bit...
