DBZ Screen Shot Posters

Post by S-toon » Mon May 04, 2020 10:38 am

Hi everyone, new here so I hope I'm posting in the right place. Anyway, I have made, tried to make, some posters, from 2 screen shot scenes that I found here a while back. They didn't come out the best so was hoping I could get some help in getting higher resolution, higher quality, screen shots from people here!

Here are the 2 that I got from here awhile back.

And here they are printed and framed. Not the best pics, the camera on my phone sucks lol

So yeah I would really appreciate some help in getting some high quality, high resolution of those same 2 shots to be able to print as posters, as I used a free online poster maker and when they got blown up the quality wasn't as good. I used https://rasterbator.net/ to make them. The first one used 2 sheets of paper, but I would like to try and print it a little bigger, like that second one, as the second one used 3 sheets of paper, but you can see where the 3 pages come together and don't like that, and if I can actually get some really good high resolution screens grabs then I would try and actually get them printed thru an online poster maker so they look really good like actual posters :D

Thanks,

Making high quality posters from screenshots can be tough but you could try using footage from the Level Sets to recreate those camera pans.

Here's examples of their video quality:

On the other hand, I'd suggest using manga panels for posters which could be found or scanned at higher resolutions.

God, I wish more people would make camera pans using the Level Set footage.

True but you'd be limited to the first 39 episodes.

Yeah, but there are still a lot to be made.

Looks like I'm going to have to go with the manga pages instead! Going to print out a few and put them in a frame like the other ones I have. Hopefully it will come out good :)

Sounds like a plan and I'm sure they will. :thumbup:

Can't argue with you there and sidebar, your camera pans are phenomenal.

Not bad at all! My only critique would be perhaps limiting the number of panels used. It feels like you've got a bunch of poster-worthy pages all fighting for attention in that frame. Maybe test printing a single page or set of panels blown up to that size?

If there are any in particular you want done, send me a PM; I can make them quite easily, provided I know which episode they're in, and roughly where in there to look.
A somewhat self-indulgent thesis on my current outlook on Dragon Ball fandom, which I feel should be below every post I make from now on:

Thanks! I was kind of going for that lol like a collage since I was just worried that blowing up pages would just make them pixelated, blurry, ect so they wouldn't look as good bigger so was just going for a collage from the manga and took the pages that showed Kamehameha vs Galick Gun.
