<b>"The Lord of the Rings Custom Pinball Aprons Project - SET 4" (STERN). Working with 4K snapshots and AI program</b>

This time I will work in new of pair sets of customized apron for "The Lord Of The Ring Pinball" (STERN) based in snapshot from my Ultra HD 4K movies and a program of "Artificial Intelligence" for to improve definition and add details to these snapshots.

The main idea is to get exactly all you want to see in every apron from movies without limitation of to get a good and enough resolution picture from the net.

Two users will select all themes for every apron and I will choose the best frame to configure aprons. I will improve these scenes in high definition with Photoshop, controlling colours, brightness, contrast..., and, with "Artificial Intellingence" program, I will add details and even more definition.

*I take bigger screenshots and photos, for to avoid blur effect of pinside´s miniatures click to enlarge images (and click again on display image mode if it is necessary).

Printed material I chose for these works will be vinyl with glossy protective lamination and precut. Printing work will be done by a off-set machine for maximum definition (not for a big plotter. I get a very high definition too but machine will be little and more precise) I will re-design golden elements with "photoshop" for to get more metallic and sharpen apareance.

Let´s Start!

I’ve decided to try and make my own decals. My wife has a lot of the equipment required...so I’ve been dabbling.

Hi stuckey_t!

It will be very helpful if you tell me what scenes do you like for every apron. Tell me what movie part and scene do you like. For example, In "The Fellowship" there are 2 scenes will Gandaf smoking than I found:

1) Galdaf with Frodo in his caravan.
2) Bilbo and Gandaf smoking shapes.

Bilbo and Gandaf have not good frames because they are so near in my opinion.

You told me that you have DVD movies, check them in your PC or Mac and tell me what scenes you are interested to see in every apron. This part is the most funny process!

AI program works great! Character´s faces are incredible!

Snapshop is so perfect!

Mikonos, which sets are currently for sale?

Hi attyrhodes!

Well, "for Sale" are wrong words, because I´m not a seller. My target is to enjoy and explore new ideas and graphic solutions. In that way, the right word is "available". When I finished this custom work it will be available and, then, I will jump to another custom pinball work. I accept suggestions and requests (and feedback about my customizations).

Greetings!

Fair enough! I'm interested in replacing my inserts so if you have anything available shoot me a message or let me know when you will have some.
