PostPosted: 0    Post subject: Scans for Skins

I have seen a few people that have made skins for various electronics and absolutely love the idea! I am wondering if anyone has any high quality scans I can use of G1 artwork such as pamphlets, backcards or playset boxes? I would love to see as many as possible to see what will work and which I like best. I am especially interested in a skin for my new Kindle Fire but may do one for my computer, phone and or iPod so the bigger/clearer the image the better. Thanks for your help!

I think scans of animation production cels, vector traces and restored artwork from movie boxes would work best but I have yet to see high enough quality backcard scans. Sad

A lot of people are getting them off of this site:

www.zazzle.com/gifts?c...littlepony

There are lots of skins already made but I'm not sure about for Kindle Fire?

FPM, is it a plastic cover or a sticker? I've wanted to get the TE cover, but the title says 'skin', but in the description it says case :/

I was actually thinking along the lines of what Nosar did with her computer. She did a scan of a pamphlet and made it into a skin to go on her Apple computer.

Gabumon: Vectors I don't think that was what I had in mind. I really like the look of original artwork like what Nosar has on her computer. I know she did a thread kind of like this one to see if anyone had anything else she could use to make another one but I don't know that she actually got much unless people PM'd her.

Emery: I know I want to get a few things on Zazzle but they do not have anything for Kindle Fires yet. That is definitely the kind of artwork I am thinking though. Also, the website I found to make custom skins has templates for my phone, computer, MP3 player and my kindle and at decent prices!

Have you had a look at the media section of mylittlewiki to see if any would work? I had a look and some had rather good resolution!

I have a bunch of scans of pamphlets, posters, and books HERE (The books are in sub-albums.) If you see anything you like and it's not a high enough resolution for you just drop me a PM with the details and I'd be glad to provide a better quality scan for you. (I have backcards from Years 2 - 7 as well.)
