    Thanks for your reply! I really appreciate the weight of paper and the description you gave, thank you very much for that. I'll have definitely take a look around, especially now that I kind of have an idea of what to look for. Btw, sorry if this is a dumb question, but what's a plotter?

    Haha, you're welcome man.

    That's a "plotter", a high grade printer that uses the CMYK color space. It uses small blobs of hardened paint it heats up. As you can see it uses media on rolls and can print massive sizes. :) But you use A2 and A3 as well, on them. :)

    One of my two recent commissions I've had

    tumblr_ol4cervfLe1vln0cro1_1280.png

    Unfortunately this one won't be used [or maybe it will] as the client for this scammed me of my service like a prick and got me in a bit of a bind on my paypal, but I won't get to much further into that.

    Hey guys, haven't been here in a while but recently acquired a TES+ and wanting to change the artwork on it.

    I whipped this up so far, but it feels lacking. Like it needs something more of substance. I was thinking maybe button/dustwasher border designs like on Vewlix/Hori stick art but open to any suggestions.

    Here's what it looks like: SRaBXDFg.jpg

    Edit: I decided to try using a more neutral colour as a background and using the yellow as an accent. Made some Vewlix style borders for the buttons and dustshaft. Here it is: S1phx18.jpg

    Let me know if it still looks lacking. I think some nice effects on the borders would be nice, wondering how to get that sort of metallic looking sheen for the grey, if anyone knows how or has a tut, PM me :P

    What's going on people? I'm looking to see if someone can help me with some artwork for my HRAP4. My request might be considered a complicated commission.

    Its been YEARS since I last posted in SRK (my av might give some hints lol)

    So all my life I've never modded the artwork of my stick, I'm looking for someone that can help me with one for my TE2+ and maybe also for my Qanba Eightarc Synthesis. Just wondering whats the common price range for a commission?

    And the gold sanwa's finally came in from Japan along with the pink Seimitsu top. I replaced the screws with golden ones instead too. So the LINK and the buttons and the screws are now gold. I think it's finally done.
    Unfortunately one of the sanwas has scratches in the plunger. :( The plastic seal that's usually on top fell off in the bag they were in and I think the button hit something on the way here. Really unfortunate. :/ It was wrapped in a lot of bubblewrap so all I can think is that the connections on one of the other buttons has scratched it. I can't be arsed to order ONE button with shipping right now. Maybe some other time.

    Threw this together the other day for a Makestick case. Dunno if the case will actually come, but would be nice if it did. Was thinking of doing outlines around the buttons and lever but I couldn't really make it look good so I left it as it is.

    Hey guys,

    What can I do to make my art look less faded when installing it underneath the plexi? I'm thinking increasing contrast and saturation in photoshop prior to printing would make a difference. Maybe printing on gloss cardstock instead of matte? I'm not sure what to do.

    Any suggestions or general advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    dont use card stock, dont even use glossy card stock. dont do laser color printing.

    use photo inkjet printer, use photo paper (epson or canon are good brands), glossy if you're being economical, luster if you wanna ball out (looks nice, i do luster on some of mine)

    if curious, I have examples of photo paper under plexi prints on my tumblr

    it is pricier, but looks better in the long run, if you have access to most consumer 10-color printers, they (canon, epson) usually have inks that are said to be "non fading, non yellowing" or "archival quality", I have art on sticks that have been on the stick for years and it hasn't faded/yellowed so far.
  • airdoojieairdoojie Joined: Posts: 16
    @hibachifinal Thanks for your insightful and informative input. I checked your tumblr page out (very impressive work, by the way!) and you are absolutely right about using photo paper over cardstock. The artwork pops a lot more and definitely presents a higher quality feel.

    hardest part is figuring out what color buttons to use was gonna go 6 gray/clear rim, 2black/clear and 24mm being translucent black
  • AtLaS808AtLaS808 A tiger keeps always his stripes ! Joined: Posts: 164
    @kazer64 i think if you wanna use clear btns,better put something inside,in the art,like some little Onix spirits,otherwise blue btns with yellow rim or the opposite :)

    looking for a new commission, it's been a while since I've had some artwork done. I'm looking to have some art done for a Qanba Obsidian that would feature Dizzy and Elphelt from Guilty Gear and my SRK name. For the right artwork, I am willing to pay the artist up to $15 USD from my Paypal account.

    So I have 3d printed a dustwasher in PLA plastic. What would be the most cost effective way to paint it? I looked into air brushing but decided against it as i'd only ever use it once. Would spray painting then top coating it work out well? Thanks.

    Your best bet for painting PLA is generally give it a good sand with some high grit sandpaper (I wanna say like 220+, the real fine stuff anyway), as this will help your paint adhere better.
    In terms of paint you have three real options:
    1: Spray paint in a can - Generally works quite well and is quite quick.
    2: Acrylic Paint - Can pick it up from craft stores, goes quite well though you'll need a paintbrush
    3: Model Paint - Same as what they use for tabletop miniatures, honestly it doesn't work as well (at least in my experience) although it probably would given enough time and care, but if you're just doing one solid colour I'd go for either of the above first unless you have model paint on hand.

    Hope this helps friendo.

    Thanks! A friend directed me to this video since I have raised parts on the dustwasher I want different colors. Would spray painting it gold, then black, and then using a qtip with lighter fluid to rub off the gold parts I want work?

    Edit: Would plastic prep before applying the paint help?
