Thanks for all the feedback.

Any suggestions on the trim color? I was thinking of just going with black.

Thoughts?

Awesome cp art.  I agree, black would probably look best, good and neutral.

Third black. Fantastic art!  Only thing I would have done different would have been bigger logo, but great work!

Yeah I was going to leave the logo off, then I decided to leave it on, then I was going to put several of the Metal Slug game logos across the top of it from the different versions. Then I went back to the original idea as you see it. The reason I went with the way it is now is because if I made the logo bigger or added more of them it would have got too busy or covered up the tire marks, not to mention I was trying to keep the logo out of the buttons etc...

So yeah, I agree the logo would have look better bigger but I would have wanted to keep it between the two marks which would have ran into two buttons and a joystick. I am just hoping now that the dust cover from the 4 way does not swallow up too much of the logo.  It is the hole closest to the logo.  :-\

That looks great!

How did you do it?  Are the characters all cut/paste from some other place and overlayed in [Photoshop, etc.]?  They all look really good.  Nice pair of legs in the center.  ;)

Did you print it yourself or send it out?  Where?

Thank You.

Well the idea was mine but another friend designed it, I supplied him with the art. I believe he did a lot of cutting and pasting via Photoshop. There where many revisions before we settled on the one you see here. Most of the credit I need to give to him as he did a very nice job.

Then another friend printed it. Maybe you don’t recall when we spoke on the phone Paul but I had mentioned to you that I had a friend who was able to do this. I plan on having him print my side cab. art as well.

***Plese Note*** Second Picture

What is seen being printed out in the printure below he will no longer print so don't even ask! Long story...

Yea... that plotter looks like it would do the job.

(Now I remember our conversation  :) )

The graphics came out really nice.

My friend has that one and even one bigger than that. He also has a smaller one too.

If anyone ever needs anything on here let me know, the quality is amazing and I don't mind helping people out when I can.  ;)

Any other opinions on the overlay?
