Those are pretty sweet Snaake - you must REALLY love fighters  ;D
I also dig the sideart and marquee theme of capcom on one side and snk or marvel on the other.   If I would change anything it would be make the name on the marquee look a little bigger.  But other than that I really like it.

I did notice a few things, minor though they be, and I though you'd love me to pick them out for ya.

The ryu/ken pair on the marquee image look odd because they have a soft look compared to the hard edge outlined characters the on the CP and the rest of the marquee. Oh, and ken looks queer.

It would be nice if the text were more consistent over the whole design. The marquee text looks squashed horizontally compared to the overlay, and the sideart is different again.

Speaking of sideart text, it should have the same orientation on both sides. Whether it be angled or horizontal it just looks strange because they dont match. It looks as if they're covering the intersection of the images, but that shoudn't be too hard to fix.

The colour theme looks to be rich earthy tones, and the ryu/akuma image on the sideart doesn't fit it. Maybe a hue change on the bg could fix that.

(Oh yeah, remove the spiderman logo on the bottom left of his sideart image)


Other than those details, looks pretty solid Snaaake.  ;)

Actually Snaaake I love the marquee, the side art, and the overlay. Just one thing I would change is that the whole theme has Capcom and SNK (mostly Capcom) then you added Marvel to be one of the side arts. It doesn't really match the rest. If I were you I would design another one. But that's just my opinion. Other than that everything is great, don't change another thing. Thanx.

-See Ya!!!

Someone won the lottery.
Let me know if you can get all that artwork printed for less than $1000.

Great idea..... but.
If you build a frankenpanel, chances are I don't care for you as a person.

thanks for the input.
yes ken looks little "softer" then usual here(lol) but hey gotta keep it simple.
yeah will make the text same orientation(didnt think it would matter but...)
yeah I myself dont like the capcom side that much but this side will be hidden(corner) so no one would be seeing that anyways so whatever.
removed spiderman logo.
how about the I just posted now?

hey thanks.
yeah I should do all cvs2 but the cabient plays more then 1 game..LOL.
actually I wanted the overlay to be cvs2(best game ever),a simple marque,one side capcom and other side marvel.
so I have an all around cabinet !  :)

not really...someone doin the panel and marque for FREE !  :D
and kinkos quoted me like $72 each side on vinyl BUT cyberpunk charges like $5 sq feet and he said he would do for $58 per side..doesnt sound bad at all..

OKAY VOTE AWAY !
first one or this one ?

The only thing that's a little odd is that every piece of art has an orange tint except the one side that is blue.......   :-\

hey..not bad idea..I will be doin now ! (I never thought about changing).  :)
will post an update !

Im curious to see the quality of the print.

What size and dpi are your side art images?
the marque is 300 dpi,CP overlay 200 dpi and sides are 175 dpi.
My computer cant add filters if I do the sides over 175.out or memory..even though I got 1gb or ram..weird !  :-[

120 gb...
175 dpi for the sidearts have to do for now...OR I could work on a smaller imge then extract a .jpg then use that for a 300 dpi file.
who knows...working on this now !

I think Wolverine and Spidey look out of place. I understand the Marvel vs Capcom thing, but there are no Marvel characters on the marquee or CP overlay. Feels like this wants to be a Capcom cab...

Hey SNAAAAKE, it all looks nice. But the left side art looks familair :D

On your control overlay, correct me if I'm wrong, but do you have Ken on there twice? Or is one of them Baby Ken or something? heh

Ken is the one on the far right, the blond guy just right of Ryu is Ryo (I believe thats his name, its a bit late)  from King of Fighters and Art of Fighting

Okay I am busted !  :-X
white flag up !  :D
Chuck gets the credit for the marvel sideart though...just that I like it a lot.  :)
www.leafstation.com
that sideart is awsome so I had to find the pieces somewhere online(google is your best friend ;)).

and the ken twice thing...LOL
no man ken isn't there twice.
the one in the middle with ryu and dan is ryo(snk).

......WEEEEEEEEEEEEEET and I'm not even a Capcom or Marvel fan.
