Ghouls n Ghosts n Tully

Looks like I'm gonna build a new Tully cabaret.

The vision is simple.




Have pretty much everything on hand in the ole parts box.
Managed to snag a coin door for less than $40

I blame you 100% for these shenanigans. Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in.

Will do. Maybe I'll get around to cutting a board soon.

First challenge was the artwork. Took me a while to settle on the theme.

I need to make the artwork flow with the bezel like I did with the galaga cab. Since the cp art wraps down the front on ghouls n ghosts cab I thought I could slide the skulls and logo down for the kick plate art.



I decided to drop the left hand buttons to save space and flip the player start buttons to the right hand side. (Sorry for the photo quality)


Kick plate



Thoughts? Suggestions?

Looks great so far.  My only comment would be to remove the Ghouls N Ghosts logo from the kick plate if you are also planning on the exact same design for the marquee.  Having it in 2 places on the same panel so close together would be a bit much and the skulls look cool on their own anyway.  Then I would also chop off some of the black on the top so the edge is the same distance from the top right skull as it is along the bottom.

Are you using Inkscape for the art?  I am slowly trying to learn but right now all I can do is manipulate basic shapes...

I was definitely thinking about it. The marquee is different than the kickckplate, but they both say GnG, was thinking I could get away with it since the original ghouls n ghosts cab had the marquee and that logo on the front of the cp.
Also one thing that kept me from moving the logo from the kick plate design is that I'm using downloaded photoshop files and just light editing. It's like going through the spikes and skulls so I would have to re draw sections.

I'm just using regular ole photoshop.
