Well here it is, The Artwork for my Arcade Stick, I've wanted to customise an Arcade Stick for years. I finally put my foot down and said stop dreaming and start working and I knew I wanted the best artwork I could get so I hired The Tigress
and I never expected this to come out the way it has, Everything has come out so PHATTASTIC I can't believe this is my Arcade stick.
What's more PHATTASTIC about this is that The Tigress modified her Comic-book style a bit to give it a more intense style. When I started, I was only thinking of just one image of Zapedy doing a Jumpkick but once I put it, I realised there was so much space to add more, so I decided to get The Tigress to do a good close up of Zapedy's face and a great ground and pound shot on a random opponent. I also asked her to do an image of Zapedy roaring in the background where she uses her coloured sketch style and I faded it in the background to make it busy.
The Background was made by me, the sweat was made by me, the splashes were made by me and the background for the buttons were made by me and I also did some effects. The Tigress made everything else, I'm very proud of what I did because when The Tigress did the images, I was scared that what I wanted to add may ruin but I think what I've done has gone perfect with it, I actually think this is some of the best Photoshop work I've ever done and I'm so glad with how this came out.
I added the Buttons here, I know that the select and start buttons aren't there so I have to show them on a different post. But with these buttons, I decided to make this like a Tekken layout, the buttons corresponds to the moves, square button is left punch so I got the tiger to draw a left fist, vice versa with the triangle, X is left kick and for that I decided a Lead leg Side kick which I love the form for. O is right kick and I went with a Turning kick which is used many times in Taekwondo, Muaythai and MMA in general and The other 4 buttons are Zapedy's trunks logo)
