    I remember talk of this back when the film came out but that thread seems to be gone... did anyone ever get to this or find any good source other than a screencap?

    I remember seeing robot blueprints at the Sky Captain booth at Comic Con in 04, but that was it. I think the blueprints were on the walls.

    Still kind of hard to make out the text.


    Any sharper pics out there?

    ive been working tracing over the entire blueprint to make a nice clear image from it and noticed, when you look at those two screencaps the head of the robot on the left is different in them both, one simplified and one with more details as the blueprints posted. I will be going with the more detailed version, just interesting :p

    Heres my scratch made blueprint. Most of the German is just gibberish, bt I made out what I could, including the main title on top. Ive got a few things hidden in there so dont let this end up on ebay :p

    Looks * spiffy :)

    What'd you draw it in, anyway?

    Also, I think the bottom has a border just like the top & sides, but the video cuts before it's shown (so it isn't in the caps).

    Looking good, but I would suggest having one of our German speaking friends on this board try to do proper translations to make it really authentic.

    Even though I use Photoshop myself I would have to agree with Franz Bolo about the Illustrator version of it.
    It can easly be moved to either platform.

    I have Illustrator but have yet to learn how to use it. :rolleyes

    I know i should have done it in Illustrator but i wasnt thinking... but whats wrong with it, when you print it out it looks fine and its a jpg, crossplatform.

    It looks good, but a jpg is really limited for editing and scaling.

    A vector drawing is easier to manipulate and scale etc. You can get nice small rule lines and perfect complex geometric shapes.

    well i hadnt planned on editing or scaling it later...its the right size and i kept everything the same thickness on purpose, looks like marker used for blueprints... im a graphic designer, so I know the differences...i just didnt think it would need editing later, hadnt really thought about it.. .Oh well, id have to redraw it all in illustrator, i didnt save the paths. I really did it on a whim :p

    I could swear there was an official art pack that you could download from the website, for fan sites or press or something...

    Can't find it now, but it does have logos & production art.

    that would be very cool. I did this from production art on the site, but it was just with the character sketches, not a package.

    alright, now using Illustrator, ive got the extra stuff added that wasnt there and ive finished retyping out all of the text since its readable. Its great for print right now...but if you guys really want me to I can go over the rest of it to make it even sharper... for illustration, everything red here is added stuff so far (the other boxes are text thats been retyped)

    Sharper is always better... well, almost always. If it's in Illustrator the people who want thicker or thinner lines can just change the line weight, yes?

    When done, I'd be greatly interested in an at-cost version, or maybe a little more (5-10 dollars more).

    Kylash... that looks SWEET. This thread became a favorite very quick. If you don't mind posting the .ai thread, I think there are more Illustrator users than you image out here. If not, I understand... Just post a nice LARGE .gif or .jpg. Either way, thanks for all your work on this.

    Is this a candidate for the "Free Paper Props" thread?

    Any chance of an at-cost run? For those of us without home access to a giant printer?

    Well, I certainly don't want you to get in trouble with your work, but put me in for two if you can.

    One for framing, one for playing.
