Game art copied from elsewhere

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

The Gryzor alien actually comes from the Japanese flyer.

I am not sure about the source of the second face. I first thought it might be Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs in Miami Vice), but I think it is actually Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian in Star Wars).

It seems that the Chase HQ figure is Billy Dee Williams. This is the source:

Here is it flipped to show it more clearly:

These images are from the arcade flyer, not Bob Wakelin's cover, but Wakelin followed it pretty closely (or possibly vice versa).

The artist has trimmed Williams' hair and given his moustache to Harrison Ford.

In the case of the hands, the artist has somewhat weirdly moved the knuckles, so as to reposition the top two fingers, but has retained the same overall hand shape, making the third finger from the top freakishly long. He has obviously added a second hand, as well.

The flyer artist also made the hands way too big! Wakelin fixed that.

Nor me, looks a real stretch to be honest. That pose was pretty much standard for movie and TV characters in the 70's, just off the top of my head have a look at the 'Magnum Heat' version video cover of 'Hickey and Boggs' for a similar hand\gun pose. And they've even got the yellow car on two wheels being blown up from behind on that cover as well! Not saying that this is the actual template for the arcade Chase HQ ad- definitely not the faces - but you might put it in the "inspired by" column.

It's hard to see at first, as the hair changes really alter the overall impression, and the different lighting makes a difference, too. But if you closely match the details (eg the eyes, nose, etc), it's almost an exact copy.

I'll try to do an overlay of the two images.
