I've spent the last month vectoring images for MM. I pretty much done, so I can start designing. I came up with this marquee tonight. I want the artwork to be prodominately dark blue, to contrast the lighter blue paint job and match the dark blue t-molding.
Also, I used "Nintendo" in the marquee.....as opposed to capcom....which I did vector a logo for. I just liked Nintendo better.....but what do you guys think? Should I switch it...does it really matter? I don't really care but Any MM purists gonna be all, "but it's not a nintendo game!" Haha
Also, as far as theme. Man, I really like Mega Man 2....widely considered the best MM game out of the series. however, I'm using all Mega Man 1 artwork for this cabinet. I tried to find a Image for Mega Man that was closest to the tiny black and white Mega Man in the original NES instruction manual....so it fits in with the rest of the artwork from that time. if you remember, the original NES MM box art had some weird space dude on the artwork....not gonna use that.
I used the grid from the NES box art, which I will use with thr CPO and bezel as well. I thought it would be cool to throw a pink laser beam across it, to mimic MMs gun. i was thinking of lighting the underside of the cabinet with a pink LED light as well.
Also, on Christmas I downloaded Street Fighter X Mega Man.....omg (I never use omg, but this game deserves it) what a badass game! We spent most of the day trying to beat it....and now I really want to build a cabinet for it! Ha. It's an exe file...so I might end up throwing it in this cabinet.
