The NEW Official Arcade Stick Art Thread NO IMAGE QUOTING!



Do you have a template for it, or a digital caliper to take measurements?


I can get a template, I remember seeing one in a message board


If you get the template you can PM me and let me know what you have in mind. I probably wont have free time to pull something together till Saturday though.


I’ve no idea ATM, This is my very first proper stick (had a hori mini beforehand) and I am handy in photoshop so I decided to do this mockup, where do I go from now ?


Oh Thanks Very Much :smile:


Received my artwork from tek-innovations and finally got a chance to put on my PS3 Madcatz VS stick. Still thinking of changing the buttons to red and yellow transparent sanwas and also dual mod it to be compatible with the XB1.




@Gorilla White, That is sexxy! Love it, looks very nice.


Thanks @IceBerg303 .


Recent commission.


KrizmKazm on YouTube has made some FREE artwork for the MadCatz TE2 & Razer Atrox Fightsticks.
You can get it here then print it out yourself or go to Kinkos and have them print it.
He will also do custom work for a fee. To contact him just search for KrizmKazm on YouTube and comment on one of his videos.

I just joined and don’t know how to post pics otherwise I would.


I’ve been looking through this thread at all the nice work folks have done and it finally gave me the inspiration to try my own hand at personalizing my new stick.

I’ve seen a few attempts to recapture that look of the NES Advantage, but I’ve never been totally pleased with any of them, so I figured I’d give it a shot myself. I was pretty thrilled with how well it all came together when completed.


Recently discovered this place and been browsing the many cool looking layouts for these fightsticks on here. Wanted to post one I made up for my TE2 recently from pictures I gathered online and just get some opinions.

It’s not themed after a fighting game, though I am messing around with a few fighting themed ones as well.


My main comments:

  1. It’s too “busy”. Feels like you thought you just had to throw EVERYTHING in there wherever there was room. Words, logos, characters, portraits, etc.

  2. Squall, Rinoa are there twice, but Edea, Ultimicia and Seifer’s only there once?

  3. Mismatching art styles: portraits on top are the original FF8 art; Ultimicia is from Dissidia, and the large Squall+Rinoa is some fanart? Try to find matching art styles from the same artist.


any templates for an Icade core I can’t find any


There is only a PDF which is not especially useful since it has no measurements. Any art done on it would not be guaranteed to fit correctly.


f’n bummer @iceberg1127


Nes theme stick! Why didn’t I think of that?!
Very cool. Snes theme?


I think the Super Advantage could lend itself to a slick looking stick if you did the multicolored buttons. I wanted something simpler though, and the NES one was that first real sort of arcade at home experience my generation longed to have.

That being said, I think it would be neat to see a SNES style one. After I get done revamping my Nyko Wand/gun attachment to look like the old NES Zapper I might get another stick for my son to use and try the Super next.


Like this?


Since an illustration I was commissioning kinda seems to have fallen through, I decided to put together art for my hitbox from a version of the bee in my avatar, inspired by the CYMK color scheme in this post: Check Out My New Arcade Stick! (No Image Quoting)

It’s the first time I’ve attempted to make stick art, so any criticism would be very welcome. I tried to keep it simple but am not sure if I want to add a few solid lines or something to help balance it out a bit more. I’ll need to get a button or two to color match, I think.

edit: I couldn’t sleep so I tweaked it a more to make the left side more of a mirror of the right.


I love it, the colors, the bee, everything, keep it up! :]
