Need help deciding on Ms Pacman Alternative artwork
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:27:25 pm »
Was hoping to get some feedback from you guys on what you think of some alternative designs...  I plan on the future having a couple more bartops and using an alternative color scheme approach to future builds, so that is why I am kind of off in a different direction.

I have a bartop ordered from Haruman and I think I want to put a spin on the classic Ms Pacman artwork, so I have been playing with some filters.

What do you think?

Electric

i chose SWIRL. But would you see the swirl behind the characters like you do in the examples? I would rather not see it behind them.

After I posted the picture, I thought the same thing...  I think it would look cooler behind Ms Pac.

I like the Electric scheme, and would probably do it with led buttons and joystick, but there are some I'd use solid color joystick and buttons...

Now that you mention it I'm liking Electric also.

Electric looks like a bad Photoshop filter job. Can you clean it up?

You like the colors, but not the extra little detail lines?

whoops..looked at wrong image with the word. I meant I like BRUSH also.

ELECTRIC looks a little busy and hard to make out the characters. Almost like MS Paint traced over them, yanno?

why not just solid blue?

I guess that is always the safe backup plan, but was wanting to test the waters for something different.  I originally started out thinking I was going to do a Galaga, but I wanted to try something with some color.
