Artwork for Bartop -
« on: January 22, 2017, 02:03:51 am »
Going for a retro/minimal look for a RPi3 Bartop setup.  I have white balltop Seimitsu sticks and translucent Seimitsu buttons.  Any suggestions?

Next issue is finding where to print...  I know there are some people on the board that print, so now I just need to finalize everything before I pull the trigger!

Also, I can't decide what color T molding would look best with this.  I like black, but grey or white seem like they might not stick out as much.

Printing depends where you are.

T moulding I think I would go dark Grey to match the "Replay" in your Marquee as the "Retro" and most of the cab is white.

But as a side note your buttons\stick layout looks awfully close to each other.

I got my samples today, so I'll know if dark grey, light grey, or black look better with this.

Yeah, the layout is a bit pinched, but I figure for a bartop it won't be used as a two player often, and I'd rather have it than not be able to do 2player...  I guess I could go wider with the layout, but again it seems like a lot of work for how often it will be used for 2p.

I may hit up some of the board members (stpcore, lucien) for printing, I just need to track down emails and get all my measurements in order.  I would go with GoG, but even for a barcade my measurements seem to be an "upgrade price" in every category. :(

Getting antsy to put it all together, I'll try to take pics and post a final product.

I dig the artwork but if you are looking for suggestions I would lose the forward arrows in the word replay. They just don't add anything to me. Also, retro would be back in time so I would consider reversing the arrow in the "o". Otherwise, nice job.  :applaud:
