thatitalian's showcase - Artist NOW for hire
« on: August 19, 2009, 05:45:53 pm »
I have had a lot of requests for artwork recently, so I decided to actually make an official thread to show you some examples of my work.

I can work with both Illustrator (vector) and Photoshop (raster). I can also produce custom skins for Maximus Arcade.

My prices are very reasonable. Please feel free to PM me for a quote.

ENJOY! ;D

Steve.

Dude, your Marvel instruction card is not original, though. It's The Vortex, from localarcade.com.

My own instruction card on my cab is derivative of it.

Yes, you're quite right! It is! It is just an example of what I can do. Plus it was just included in the marquee image so I could save on printing costs by printing the marquee and instruction card together :o, just didn't update the image... whoops!

That instruction card is actually made for my cab anyway, so you can't have it  :P

But thanks for pointing that out.

I was just sayin', if you're putting up examples of your work, make sure it's your work. If that was my work, I wouldn't be happy with you.

Fairpoint. But like I say, it was actually for me, it isn't for sale.

And whoever this belongs to, I apologise in advance.

Sorry, man, just didn't think it was appropriate to list someone else's work in a thread showcasing your own work.

That said, I've been following your work since you first joined and I've been impressed. You've done what a lot of new members fail to do....something worthwhile. Too many people fail to give back. It's been nice having you here.  :cheers:

Gotta agree that you should delete the artwork that's not your design. Otherwise, great stuff. (If it's all yours.  ;))

Done.

You are both right, I agree 100%. Like I say, genuine mistake. :-[ I was just going to use it for my cab.

Thanks for the compliment. I know how much a pain in the ass this stuff can be so I always like to try and give back what I can.

And yes, the rest of it is mine as far as I can tell, lol. :P

Sent you a PM if you are still taking commissions.
Empire had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader's his father, Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that's what life is, a series of down endings. All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets

I think the dude that made that huge 2 player stick with bw background+color magneto gets royalties for that. it was like 10 years ago or something. IF I remember correctly he was the first one to come up with the idea.

I'm talking about that particular set of artwork.  I suggested he greyscale the background.  The colored background was just too busy.

Well, the old dog is back. Sorry I have been away for what seemed like an eternity. I have been so busy with the house, work and exams it is untrue!

To all that I promised art too I am sorry but time has not been on my side.

Once I get settled (prob after new year) I will resume where I can.

Hello to all! Check out the house thread for some pics!

Do you still do work? I am a bit confused, the thread title seems to indicate that you do not (not for hire), however you still have the picture of and link in your signature.

I'm planning my arcade cab and not decided yet if it's gonna be a bartop or a super slim full height cabinet.
