My first stick art! What do you think?


#1

I’m in the process of building my first custom stick and it needs some art! I’ve been messing around with some stuff, but since I want to print it at 300dpi I am quite limited with stock art due to its high resolution (converted to 72dpi to post it of course).

First, I’d like to say that I’m a minimalist at heart but I went a little crazy with these designs. They aren’t 100% complete, but what do you think of them so far?

Alternatively, I might make a completely custom design without any video game references. Just a nice minimalistic design to bring out the aesthetics of the stick.

I’m also thinking of a Technics 1210M5G stick since I am a DJ/Producer. Unrelated to games, but still a huge part of my life.

Anyway, check out my first two candidates. Street Fighter themed because it’s my favorite fighting series of all time.

Candidate 1:

Candidate 2:

Hey, that’s not half bad. I like the 1st one a whole lot, but if you’re going for the minimalistic look, the second one is nice, too. Good stuff:tup:

Thanks man! I just whipped them together real quick. I think they’d look a lot better on the stick, or at least I hope so.

Side question, do you guys generally design your art at 300dpi? If I can get away with a crisp print at 72dpi I could come up with something a lot better. A lot of my brushes are lower res.

Hey Nikos, after seeing your custom Norris stick in the gallery thread and on cheapassgamer, I was wondering what primer/paint/clear coat combination you used? That stick is sick!

Hey, I was wondering where you got the Ken artwork for Candidate 2.

Edit: nm, found it on streetfighterhd.com
