    Image looks way unbalanced with alot of empty space on the top right. The sigil should at least be moved to the right so that it rests more on the buttons.

    Hi everybody,
    i'm kinda new here and I don't really know if it's the right place to post my request. If it's not, just tell me and I'll remove my post and apoligize.

    I have a Madcatz FightStick pro (PS3 model) and I want to customize it. Is it the right place to ask some people if they can do that for me? I don't have knowledge in graphic/photoshop etc... I have the idea but need somebody to realize this for me.
    If somebody have sometime to lose to hep me, I'll be forever thankfull !

    Thank you very mutch !

    I'd like if possible to keep the sigil centered, how can I fill up the empty space without moving it ?

    And If I have to move it, How should I do it ? reduce its size to keep it complete and move it to the right, or keep its actual size and move it to the right, cutting the edges doing so.


    Thank you for your advices

    The problem with keeping the sigil there is that it flat out ignores the buttons.

    If you don't want to move it right, I'd move it up a bit higher so that the "wings" clear most of the buttons. Then, move the character art on the left down a bit so that it's in line with the art on the lower right.

    Ah, I get it.


    Please, knowing what i had in mind, would you be ok doing it for me ? I really want to see what you'll do, just tell me your price.

    Thanks again

    My regular rate is $25. $20 for smaller sticks.

    If you have the raw PSD file for the art above, I can just modify it for a lower rate.

    Fine by me, I'll pm you for the details.

    Thanks again

    I threw this together for my Razer Atrox real quick. What do you think needs to be improved? The color in the circles are the colors of the buttons, not gonna bother with clear ones.

    The pic is just some fan art of Kaneda (It's an Akira themed stick if you didn't know what it was) and the pill is a re-color of something I found using Google.

    My current idea for my next stick art:

    Hmm... I just noticed Archer to the left looks a little... odd.

    I like the idea/concept, but the biggest flaw is the mis-matching art styles. I know it's usually tough finding the right artwork in the same art style, but having that kind of consistency would really balance things out on that layout.
    Current at-home stick: Hori VLX Kuro (LS-40-01 + PS-14-K)
    Current portable stick: Mad Catz TvC (LS-40-01 + PS-14-KN)
    Current guest-sticks: custom ABS Modular stick (JLF + OBSN-30), custom Saint-stick (Happ/IL Competition)
    Cabinet: custom "Resistor" cabinet (32" LCD, X360, P1=LS-32-01 + PS-14-KN, P2=JLF + OBSC-30)
    Previous sticks: custom Happ CvS2 Double-sticks, custom Happ Hitomi-stick & Xenosaga-stick, custom Sanwa/Seimitsu Neptune-stick and Sylvia-stick, modded Mad Catz TvC, modded Mad Catz Brawlstick, modded Hori FSVX, modded Exar Exaprize

    Looking for:
    CPS2 (green or blue): Hyper SF2

    Thanks glad you dig the designs and the Bedman stick took forever to make lol.
    The manga used is Tokyo Ghoul.
    Design wise I specialize in these comic book style stick designs so if you want one let me know ^ ^V.

    I think you need some sort of outline, drop shadow, or something around Bedman to make it stand out. It gets a bit jumbled with the busy background.

    I agree with TriXWoN - looking at Bedman again, I honestly lost track of him amidst the background. A white/contrasting color outline would help focus the eye on him.

    Edit:

    Despite what you might say, I just had to get that left image. It... just works. (That, and I gave up google searching)

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a very simple TE2 artwork. Basically this image flipped and fitted on the TE2 template and the xbox button labels swapped to playstation.

    X O R2 L2 (bottom) I really appreciate your help!

    So would a 640x480 look good on a stick? Or should I find one bigger.

    I plan on having it stretched.
  • TenshoTensho Joined: Posts: 2,873
    300dpi, and around 5000x3000(or size of your templates resolution you use) looks good on a stick.
    640x480 stretched will look like a blurry mess
  • VegeasVegeas Way of Jashin Joined: Posts: 501
    There's no I-No art anywhere near that size. FML.
  • TenshoTensho Joined: Posts: 2,873
    You can get away with smaller but it won't look as sharp as possible.

    If I can't find art around 5000p, what's the lowest number I can go without the art looking too blurry?

    EDIT: Nevermind. I found sufficient art. Thanks though, Tensho.

    I don't play Rose so have little intention of using this but made it partly out of boredom and to get a bit more experience on PS.

    If anyone wishes to make use of it though I'm happy to share the file

    Its kind of up to you.

    You already chosen Black and white parts, so go with that.
    I would not use the silver for the shaft cover and dust washer unless you got some silver elsewhere to balance it out.

    I think the silver is because the 8-arc logo under the stick is silver. Note the reflection in the picture. If it were up to me I'd actually probably get all white buttons and some silver leaf and silver up the collar on the 3P/3K buttons. Should be pretty simple to do.
    I play hitbox so I can mash buttons while I'm mashing buttons.

    I just made this for myself. Wondering if all this will look alright once printed and all that.
    Also, I was using the KI template on the first page of this thread, that will still work for the ps4 xrd stick, correct?
