Hello to all.
Although I had initially planned to have my stick artwork made by someone I know, it has unfortunately come to this. My artistic standards are a bit higher than average, so I ask that you attempt this only if you’re confident with your capability. I’ll give the rundown:
-the total size is 16" x 10.5"
-there are cut-offs on the bottom corners; for simplicity’s sake, just don’t put anything cool there! There’s no need to actually cut off the corners for me. But if you want, it’s 1.5" high, 4" horizonally, cut off as triangles.
-colour scheme should match with blue Happ buttons (sorry, but I don’t have a picture; I will try to find one). If you don’t think the art matches well, you can just make the whole thing a monochromatic blue colour scheme. In fact I may prefer that, depending on the art style.
-joystick is 4" from the top, 4.5" from the left side, and the dust cover is about 2" in diameter; the centrepoint of the nearest button (there are 6 total in SF layout, each being 1.5" apart) is about 4" from the joystick centre. Please don’t put something like a character’s head under the dust cover or buttons. Just estimate so that you don’t have to draw the template circles on there.
Sorry if everything is too specific. Other than the mentioned outline, the rest is up to you (if someone decides to do this…). I have attached 3 kanji characters: Focus, skill, and style in PNG format (I guess you should increase the size if possible). Maybe you could do something cool with them. I was thinking to align them vertically between the stick and buttons, but that’s just a suggestion. If you’re not into background effects, I suppose using a wallpaper from Deviantart.com would be good enough (that is allowed, right?). Characters that I prefer are Ryu, Ken, Alex, Dudley, Guy, Hanzo, Genjuro, Kyo, Hwang Sung Kyung, and Mitsurugi (btw, I’m not really into Falcoon art). Whichever ones you use are totally up to you, but don’t use more than 5 or 6 (I like the clean look; not too crowded). Also, I ask for there to be no text, unless it’s really necessary to the overall look in your opinion.
Whew… longest post I’ve ever written. :wow: I really hope someone accepts this task so that I didn’t type it all for nothing. If anyone makes anything at all, you have my most sincere gratitude beforehand.
If you’re not sure of something, post, PM, or try AIM (let me know first). Thank you.
