Samson & Delilah

Postby Pip » Tue Jul 27, 2021 10:01 pm

About time for another WIP and I've picked a request to do. Samsom & Delila.
I've sourced a contemporary poster that's slightly undersized but I have a plan for that. ;)
Here's the poster and I'm going against everything I've been told and learned and I'm going to enlarge it with GigapixelAI. Let's see what happens.

Original is 995x1500.

Enlarged with Gigapixel to 1990x30000 and I must admit I'm impressed! Here's a partial shot, the no loss of detail is amazing.

Here's the start of the cover, may take me a while as time is a bit limited. As always, comments suggestions welcome.

Although the above has the standard back template I usually use I'm thinking of ditching it and going for sort of a retro look.

I've been looking for a program to enlarge photos, getting rid of the inevitable pixilation. Thanks for the tip. I'll give the program a try.

I managed to find time to do a bit of work on the back.

Unfortunately it is on hold for now as the PSU on my PC went tits up. Replacement should be here soon though.

Well, a couple of days after my last post I was offered a 2 month contract on the other side of the country and forgot all about this. :-(

Anyway, back at it. Nearly finished. ;)

Yeah really... over 2 years since the last update. I surely hope the person who requested the cover is not still waiting, lol
