Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

I think you may be getting caught up too much in the need to find an identical image, exactly the same photo, whereas I'm trying to point out it's down to similarities in actors in general. If you want a nonsensical example then Billy Dee Williams can't be the model for Chase HQ because in that pic...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

OK, so here is the Billy Dee Williams image and the Chase HQ image. The image I originally posted was slightly stretched. I've used what I think is a correctly proportioned version this time.

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

It seems that the Chase HQ figure is Billy Dee Williams. This is the source: I don't see it (the match I mean). Nor me, looks a real stretch to be honest.

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

It seems that the Chase HQ figure is Billy Dee Williams. This is the source: I don't see it (the match I mean). These images are from the arcade flyer, not Bob Wakelin's cover, but Wakelin followed it pretty closely (or possibly vice versa). https://vgy.me/3BvI5E.jpg https://vgy.me/KXzxiT.jpg The a...

Re: Cover artists

BTW Simon Brattel kindly confirmed to me that "most (nearly all) of the original artwork [for Crystal and Design Design] was done by Dave [De Leuw], but there were different versions of some games and later re-releases that weren't."
