"THE LORD OF THE RINGS PINBALL - CUSTOM APRONS " (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!

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

I started with a project of customizing 3 main aprons of "The Lord of the Rings Pinball". I had this idea: I have a complete scan of original apron piece and I will add a good background fo every apron and gold details in die cut vinyl.

Opinion and improvement suggestions about this project are welcome! All users are invited!

Please, it is important an useful appraisal, both positive or negative. Be constructive with your criticism, in special with downvote!

These look nice..when will you have these done and what will the center image look like?

#4 1 year ago

Centre apron will be "One Ring", of course!

Thanks for your comment!

About this project, it is for one of my user. He chose themes for every apron with some help, but I can design other themes for every aprons only for fun.

All you will see, will be printed, after that, I will design my own customizations with other themes. Of course, if someone are interested in other themes, he can tell me for to design a new personal apron serie for him.

You should take on a full playfield redraw for LOTR Would be nice to have one that looks similar but is nice and clear rather than the typical smudgy look.

#8 10 months ago

I like what I see. Please continue with your project and keep us all posted!

Thanks for doing this!

Hi jbovenzi!

Yes, these artworks are for one of my users, he requested me something custom for his pinball and I thought some special thing for him. He wanted some specific themes for every apron, but I will customize my own themes for these same aprons ahead.

I will print all of them in 2 week! Results will be epic!

Thanks for your support!

Are you going to have these for sale? Pending pricing I will most likely be interested.

Hi StrangeSubset1!

Well, I never make selling post because I like to design new things and get new results, but I have not problem to take your request and order a copy for you, if you like print results, even if you want your own customization.

I´m designing alternative versions, but I like to show print results of this original version first.

Thanks for your comments!

Very nice... are they for sale ?

Hi Gotman!

Thanks for your comment!

Yes, no problem! ...but with a condition: I like to design new aprons. Choose between creatures, characters, themes, scenes or like you want about "The Lord of the Rings" for every apron. After that, tell me them and I will do a money estimation for your own, unique, exclusive and customized aprons.

Example: I like to see Balrog in righ apron. - I like to see Nazgûl horse riders in centre apron, etc.

Note: You don´t need to look for images, I will do it; you only have to say me what do you want to see.

Regards

#24 3 days ago

I am happy with the Gandalf/Gollum combination that you already have designed. I would purchase a set of those if the price is right!

Thanks for keeping up with these!

#25 1 day ago

Hi jbovenzi !

Thanks for your comment!

I think is a great opportunity to get something customized special for you. There are a lot of beautiful themes for "The lord of the Rings", even I would break with the classical shape of aprons. I have a lot of ideas, like design "Khazad-Dûm´s Door" with silver "die cut" vinyl for one of the aprons.

Limit is imagination!

I will show new designings for Shooter Apron in a short of time. Are beautiful!

This entire thread still Completely baffles me. You keep posting over and over and when many say they like it and want to buy it (as I did) you ask to do something custom instead?? He (like I did) like what you made in That picture. If they are not for sale Why are you making them? You have a great talent and they look real nice just not sure if your selling or just showing off your skills?

Hi Yelobird !

Thanks for your comment about my skills!

I will explain it for you and others users: It is not enough to know that my work is good in opinion of other users, I need to have fun with my work. This is reason because I don´t want to open a selling thread. I know it will be a very successful thread, but I don´t want to print the same again and again, and become myself in a slave.

I enjoy challenging myself with hard restoration and new customizations in special!

I don´t want to sell, I want to enjoy with it! This is a hobby for me, we keep it like a hobby!

Regards

Ok. So I understand then. You make all of these simply because you enjoy it (nothing wrong with that) and to show your abilities but you do not sell your creations. Not an issue and totally respect your personal creativity. Keep creating and have fun!

Good, Yelobird!

Can I customized this set for you? You think that results will be better that you knew in this thread for now. For example, I worked in a Left Apron for LOTR with a balrog theme.
