THE LORD OF THE RINGS PINBALL - CUSTOM APRONS SET 3 " (STERN) in develop. Modding project
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Introduction: I´m Mikonos and I´m 19 year old in arcade and pinball hobby. I´m the webmaster of a fansite called "Zona Arcade. Construye, Restaura y Decora tu Máquina Arcade y Pinball" (14 years old) too. I always had same nickname. I´m a fan and a huge collector of arcade and pinball cabinets, and other items related. Some year ago I realized that I like so much to restore and customized artwork, it is my main entertainment. I think I´m good at working with design programs. You can check my skills in this pinside thread in which I´m compiling my artworks about pinballs.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/restored-and-customized-pinball-artworks-showroom-thread-by-mikonos#post-3998261

I´m not a shop and I´m not working in a printshop! Sorry for it! I´m only a fan. I learned all about design and print materials by myself, I´m always looking for volunteers for testing of my new mods and ideas, I look for new restoration challenges and more. If you have a good idea about a mod for your pinball, tell me and I will try to make it a reality. I work designing and restoring for free because it is fun for me!

Thanks so much for your comment!

I used middle Earth Map in one of my Custom Pinball Cards for this pinball. I don´t like to recycle images with my new artworks:

Hi Antron77!

I´m trying to get all quality paintings for all "aprons". I liked this painting for Aragorn, but, if you can find a better option, show me it here.

Hi Antron77!

I can not find a good painting of Rivendel´s Concil, but I found a very beautiful painting of Lothlórien´s Kingdom scene for centre apron.

I retouched it a little.

Yes that looks amazing! They all tie together very well so far. I love it!

There is enough character art on this game, the maps would work better on the apron and tie in the playfield. Up to you though mate

No. If you look at the centre apron in SET 1, you can see One Ring over a map.

Hello! I was wondering if you could make a set of Lord of the rings decals for me. I would like an Arwen rules card even if it doesn't have the "rules", A golloum gold ball free play card, a left apron gandalf smoking a pipe, a right apron balrog whip card, a hobbit shire shooter decal (like the one above) and in the center I would like a sexy Eowen picture Let me know how this works and how I can get this paid for Thanks for your help! I would like to send you high resolution pictures of everything once it is installed on my machine. I currently have a beautiful lord of the rings machine with just about any mod you could ask for on it!

Hi stuckey_t!

Yes!

Collect for me all pictures that you want I use in your cards and in your aprons. When I open your thread, upload them and we will discuss about possibilities and better results.

I don't have a LOTR game anymore, but I can still appreciate how good Mikonos' work is on these!

I can certainly vouch for him... I have put his custom score cards on almost all of my games. If you have something custom in mind, he can likely get it done for you. Shipping times can be prohibitively long (especially with COVID!) but the wait is certainly worth it!

Nice to greet you!

Thanks so much for your comment!

Yes, I´m looking for new projects and art option for other pinballs permanently. In fact, I´m working in Black Rose Aprons with real gold vinyl for to upgrade this original from BALLY that I restored recently.

Well, it is so curious! When first shooter Apron artwork I started a jorney symbolically and with this new option, I finish this jorney with Orodruin Volcan.

I like more left side, it is more similar to my style and technique using collages for this kind of themes, but I have other techniques.

Looks great, getting tempted!

I think that Legolas picture is taken from The Hobbit, and not LOTR? Sorry to nitpick...

#36 2 days ago

Thansk for your comments!

Antron77, we want good photos of the results in your pinball with aprons and cards! Good photos!

Thanks again!

Well, I will start with set 4 and 5 ata the same time in the same thread. In this case I will use "4K Screentshots" and a "Artificial Intelligence" designing program to improve all screenshots. It will be open in some days.

About this thread, I will release some near photos of all Apron that I took with natural light before shipping. In these photos you will appreciate better the beautiful of the aprons.

Best regards
