    any critique on my latest shindig?

    ready for print IMO

    @Vegeas Very nice, but the main problem is that the paint splatter is super-sharp and crisp, whereas your artwork is (understandably) not.
    I'd recommend inking your artwork and coloring it digitally (even in grayscale), so that it can be just as sharp.
    Thanks. It was my first time trying to make art using photoshop. So I was just playing around until I found something nice.

    Will try your advice, though.

    Tried to make my own artwork. What do you guys think? I just couldn't think of any background at all so I just splatted paint. Any tips or advice?

    Why not fade out the background or just drop the transparency drastically, It distracts from your artwork, which is really good and should be the main focus.

    Thanks. Forgot about using transparency. Never really came to my mind.

    I'm planning to mod my hori stick. I will extend the plexi area (removing the control panel and the start compartment) and put the start/select in the front.
    It will look something like this:

    I just wanted to keep my VX SA as simple as possible and I really liked the new SFV Ryu image. Plus the original art on my stick is turning yellow and starting to peel. I guess I'm going to have to spend $25 at Tek-Innovations for a plexi and artwork :smiley: Are they still a good option?

    First real try on making my own design any thoughts?
  • FreedomGundamFreedomGundam Freedom, ikimasu! Joined: Posts: 2,474
    @supremekai Good first try.

    My comments:
    - Background is too blurry, try to find something sharper. Either that, or maybe you can apply some filter onto it so that you enhance/smooth-out the blurriness.
    - Better sizing/placement of your characters will avoid having that much of them getting cut off the left/bottom edges.

    Thanks the characters are my crutch when it comes to this can not either size them correctly or end up cutting some of the characters off

    If that's a TE2 template your bottom right Japanese text will most likely be cut off under the bezel a bit.

    what u think about it? anything i could do better?

    1) Different art styles: your Ryu, Ken, Blanka and Juri all come from different sources, and their art style clashes. Try to find pictures of your characters from the same game, artist, or source.

    2) Proportions: your Ryu and Ken (at least) are not sized with the proper aspect ratio; it looks like you flattened/squashed them when resizing. Always hold SHIFT when resizing so that you maintain aspect ratio

    3) Too busy: do you really need a pretty random (IMO) subset of characters on your stick? Ryu+Ken makes sense, but Blanka and Juri are just... there.

    4) What is that thing in the background?...

    Main advice is try to maintain some sort of unity on the art. You want it to look like you put some though into how each piece fits in with the flow, and not that you just plastered your favorite things together haphazardly without considering what was already there.

    You also want to factor where the holes for your buttons and Joystick will take on your stick art.

    Way too busy.

    Just use the standard template, as the Chun stick has the same panels as the round 1/2 TEs. I just wanted the colors to look good with the case.

    edit: could you keep the button holes? I'd like to use inserts.

    what u think about it? anything i could do better?
    that background looks pretty legit imo outside of that random C4D. You could definitely do much better with making sure your art is properly scaled, and probably getting rid of Juri and Blanka. Having two different styles of Ryu and Ken hurt your composition, but with a few distortion layers [apply image > duplicate layer > filter (honestly you could use whatever, distort with some blurring would probably be best) > soft brush erasing what doesn't look good], photo filters (use varying layer options/opacity), better blending and lighting, you could make it work. it wouldn't hurt to add a bit of textures. Keep working at that red/blue scheme.

    Mixed media pieces are hard, but doable.

    Recently got a PS3 MadCatz KE stick in a bogo deal with a friend, and wanted to try to put some art on it. Went back to trying a Solatorobo design. Any advice on if this is too busy, dull, or needs work? I'd be going for clear buttons, possibly adding button labels on the art.

    1) Images used are too low resolution

    2) The left and middle ones look distorted; make sure you maintain aspect ratio when resizing

    3) Your "drop shadow" on the middle one on the leg is overlapping the triangular frame

    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    I'm putting together a dope arcade stick. This is my first custom artwork and i'm not good at the photoshop so I was hoping to get some pointers. Is the image too small? I stretched out the background and I'm not really sure how to make it look better. The right is a little plain, I want to add some boarders and labels around the buttons. What's the best way to do that?
