Hiya,

I was browsing the Mondo thread and MovieManJeff1012 posted his picture of Dan McCarthy's Hoth and JC Richard's Fortress of Solitude prints hung up next to each other:

I have my own two copies of the prints hung up together as well and I felt like there was something missing. So, I spent the better part of an hour mocking this up:

Image

I'm planning on producing an actually decent looking version of this layout and getting it screen printed. I initially posted the image in the Mondo thread, but didn't want to hijack it with off-topic crap, so, I figured I'd start up a new thread to post my progress and eventually (hopefully), a link for purchase.

EDIT: Also, middayshadows mentioned a Star Trek 2009 print with Kirk on the ice planet/moon, so he planted a kernel there.

I like it better without the copter I think. More isolated that way. Just my 2 cents. I still want one.

I like the copter and the dog, but would like them more if they were much smaller. Closer to scale with the base.

I really dig this print. Great idea. Definitely a +1 (hopefully).

Yeah, I think he will work out the scale some more. I get that the dog is supposed to be in the foreground, but it still looks big. If he tightens up the scale a bit...Underbart!

Can they claim copyright if when I look at it this is what I hear (in my head)?

I'd be a +1 on this if you fixed up the scale :notworthy:

Just re-posting this from the Mondo thread so people can get up to speed. Go for it Mark!

Hmmm.... well, if there was enough interest, I could make something like this mock up I just whipped up

Nicely done! Looks exactly like what I had in mind - a companion to JC's and Dan's posters.

I did not realize the idea would go anywhere...

Great mock up Mark!

I just did a quickie mock up, nothing is separated or cleaned up. Used some snow pictures from around where we live, drew the husky, screen-grabbed the heli and base.

I'll see if I can't get a quote for a 3-4 color, 12x36 print on some decent cotton and go from there. I'll also start a Mark Englert thread or something and post progress stuff... did NOT mean to hijack the Mondo thread.

And as long as I don't mention the movie, I don't see how anyone can claim copyright on mountains, snow, a helicopter, a dog and a fairly generic Artic base.
The Thing works too, and was actually the first movie I had in mind.

But I pitched Star Trek because Mondo has that license and would be an easier fit that way. Also, as with Dan and JC's, you could include one very very subtle fantasy element (the ice monster), while keeping it predominantly a snowy-landscape vista.

Agree.

Looks fantastic. I agree that the scaling could be perfected, but I'm in awe that it took you an hour or two to mock that up...

Since you are talking about hanging with Hoth and Fortress, are you thinking of making this 12 x 36?

Yeah, it'll definitely be 12x36, waiting to hear back on quotes from some shops now.

Scale is definitely an issue, I was just going for legibility in the mock up. I want the dog and the helicopter to be fairly subtle in the end.

I'm gonna grab my Thing Blu-Ray and have that on while I work for the day. Gonna start work on hi-rez elements and will post them as I go!
