[VOTE] What Joystick Art is Better?


#1

I’m not much of a video game person other than SF3. Which is why I don’t want characters and stuff like that as my joystick artwork.

Instead I’m opting for more interesting design ideas for the joystick.

I’m thinking of using this ‘crack lcd’ pic.

OR

A camoflague design.

What do you guys think? If you have any ideas for my joystick art feel free to post some pics too, I’d appreciate it.


#2

first picture is the same as the second.


#3

That first ones pretty cool, I could see it working out well. But out of curiosity have you decided on a material or finish yet for the stick? Are you gonna go with a painted finish or a nicer looking wood with a stain. Those kinda things would make all the difference in which art would look better.

I think the camo would look nice on a black box with black buttons, but that first picture would work on damn near anything I would think which is why I chose it


#4

thanks for letting me know.

Changed now.


#5

Thanks for the input!

I was thinking of having it painted. Although a nice finish on the wood would look really nice depending on the artwork.

I agree on your black box/black buttons idea for the camo.


#6

Cracked screen is much nicer imo.


#7

How about the camo with a big Wu tang W in the middle?


#8

Cracked LCD is kind of neat, but the camo is boring… maybe another style of print, though? I like where you’re going with this.


#9

Cracked LCD is very cool idea.


#10

cracked LCD ftw!, really cool design


#11

cracked LCD looks neat


#12

It really comes down to ease of finding the arcade stick.

Which scenario seems more likely to you: accidentally dropping your stick in a forest, or accidentally dropping your stick in a pile of damaged computer monitors?

Use the cracked screen design, man. It will save you all sorts of trouble in future.

I rofl’d :rofl:


#14

Cracked lcd is a neat and different idea, but honestly, after you put the buttons and stick on it, will it still have the same effect? Just putting that out there.


#15

Cracked LCD ftw
Just an idea: Maybe you can position the crack so that its origin coincides with where your stick will be. That will give the impression of the stick cracking out from the LCD


#16

lol, thanks I’ll keep this in mind.

That’s a very cool idea, I’ll set up a template like this and will see how it would look.

Ya I hope to position the ‘crack’ in a spot where it would look most realistic.

PS: So my seller is going to have two templates done for me so that I can decide on which artwork to use. The 2 designs I’ve narrowed it down to are the cracked LCD design that was from this thread, or the pic of Pennywise:http://ui09.gamespot.com/264/pennywise.jpg

I’m leaning more towards the cracked LCD though.
