Re: Ibanez Kotzen "Horror" Graphics Guitar
You're exactly right. The hard part is finding each one of the original pieces of art to use as a pattern. There's dozens of versions of each one of the horror posters on those guitars, and some of the RIGHT ones are pretty obscure. I didn't want to get close, I wanted it perfect. It took me a couple of months of searching, but I finally got all of them. It's pretty obvious comparing the original guitar to the movie posters that the artist likely used the posters, or reduced versions of them, as templates for his artwork. They overlay almost exactly. Anyway, it was like a damn treasure hunt. My final product was a result of about a month of photoshopping combined with physical airbrushing to make it look just right.
Guys, I'm not trying to be a tool or sound like some of the Area 51 swirlers, but with the amount of time and effort I put into making that graphic, I'm not really interested in just handing out copies of it. I'd be happy to give you advice and such on putting it together, but try to get it all together on your own if you want to make one. It's all out there in public domain, so I know you can find what you need.
