Title: A new found hobby Arcade real life postcards
Post by: Greyfox on April 12, 2016, 16:00:02 PM
I'd seen an image a friend of mine posted on face on the classic Outrun "Ferrari" around a quiet country road directly below and thought, that's a great take on a classic arcade game and incorporating it within a real life scenario and it seem to be a bit of an addiction now creating them, so I have a few more I'm looking at doing, it's all for a bit of Arcade Art imitating life.

so I decided I'd do one on the classic from Sega the great "After Burner" which was first posted in my Coin Op Arcade Guide post, but I decided to give them their own thread, so I hope you all enjoy them and if you have any realistic suggestions on making some new ones, post them here.

and the newly created today, a great game that I played to dead in the arcades

Those are very good. I particularly like the Chase HQ, that was a great game and these cards, as you put it, are a brilliant form of modern art. Very nice work Greyfox.

Hmm only suggestion that springs to mind is Mario in a warehouse maybe...

Hmm, how about a Pole Position race car on a race track?

I will of course look into those suggestions thanks, but in the mean time, I've added another unrated classic I loved back in 1987, the wonderful Thunder Blade from Sega

Thunder Blade looks good and ironically looks very similar to the "Walk in the Park" mission from Iron Soldier on the Jag. Except you are in a giant mech soldier not a chopper ;)

Thanks fella,

Yeah it's finding one suitable to incorporate the elements into the picture and making authentic that it's recognizable instantly to the classic game itself. But I'm looking :)
