Question ID: 504527
I have a dear friend who is a "Pinky & the Brain" fan.  I'd like to
find a graphic of these two characters large enough to print on photo
paper that I can then use as the face of a clock.  I know he'd love
it, but the graphic has to be clean and large enough (say, 2000x2000
pixels) to keep the print from being grainy.

I've searched everywhere I can find, but have had no luck finding
anything over about 500 px, no where near acceptable.  I've also
thought of trying to buy a poster and cut out the applicable portion,
but every one I've found is too big.

Can anyone help?  Thanks.

I could probably use one of those wireframe drawings and color it
myself, but the chances of it looking well done are pretty slim with
my artistic talent.  To clarify, I'm looking for a color image.

The user who responded with the idea of using a comic book cover is
onto the best idea I've heard yet, and one I'd not thought of.  I'm
going to look into that, as it appears as if there aren't too many
high-res jpeg or tiff images available.

Thanks for the ideas.  If anyone has any more, please enlighten me!
There is no answer at this time.

I have done something similar to your project and offer the following suggestion:

- Use a digital camera to take a picture of the poster at the largest
resolution size.
- Be sure that the poster and the camera are parallel to each other
(so that there won't be any distortions).
- Take several pictures to be safe. If you want, try different
lighting, distance and settings to get the best results.
- Load the pictures into the computer. Pick the best one.
- Edit the picture until you're happy with how it looks. (ie, making
the colors solid, etc.).
- Save the picture (so you can use it again later if you want to).
- Resize the picture so that it will fit on the photo paper.
- Print it and have fun making the clock.  

Good luck!

Pinky and the Brain also ran as a comic book series for while (27
issues, I think). A comic book cover typically runs just a hint over
6.5 inches wide by 10 inches tall. The shiny cover stock might provide
a suitable image for you or give you some images to collage together.
You might check a local comic shop for back issues which are likely to
run $2 or $3 each.

Ebay is probably your best answer for finding issues if you don't have
a comic shop nearby. There are also a number of comic back issue
dealers online. Either choice will incur an additional shipping
expense and take additional days or weeks to arrive. Keep this in mind
so you still have time to complete the project by your own established
