I'm also going to offering some original concept art soon.

The art will be printed and affordable. It will not be hacky work.

Hey, this might be a stupid question, but is that $80.00 per side for the sideart? What if I had you do two sides, and a front? I don't know if you've seen my pedestal design yet or not, but check it out and let me know what you think about a price for that would be. Mine is called the ( Castlevania themed pedestal).

All looks great. $80-$150 is ok price. I would hope for a better deal, IMO.

I've got a brand new full sized MAME cab going now, with all the goodies, and need some art, but I can't spend what your asking. I've found other guys with just as good skillz for close to half this. Sorry mate, but just being honest. You do produce quality work. thanks

If you can find a better deal, then go get it and stop poo-pooing his thread. Factor in how much time he puts into a design and I doubt he is making more than 15 an hour...and that is if he is lucky with the amount of revision work. This is coming from a person who used to do the same thing. In the end, it wasn't worth it to me. I would put in 40+ hours on a design and end up making 200-250 bucks.

I bet you have easily more than a grand invested in your cab. You cannot spend an additional 10-15% to make it look good?

Totally agree with billpa, $80 is cheap! I'm a full time graphic designer and i charge $50/hr for all side work. I just designed some sled graphics for a snocross team, charged them $750 for the design time alone. If you can find cheaper than $80 more power to ya, but personally i'd be worried about the quality of work you're going to receive.

gbeef, that wu-cade design is awesome. nice work.

Thanks Bill.

As for the future. Ill be offering another service. I have a bunch of stock designs. I've spent a ton of time working on custom created artwork that be offering to the community the design will be printed also. This artwork will be illustrated from scratch. This is for people that cannot afford custom work but still want a custom look.

And yes this takes a ton of time to do. I do this for the hobby more then the money. I dont get it either people spend over 1K-2K on a cabinet but then its an eye sore in there living room.

I've also stopped taking on commissions, because i don't like working for 5.00 an hour, and you basically. But if you have a neat idea or just have a cabinet that needs artwork i may have something that would suit your needs.

I actually think it's a really good deal, and I appreciate artists who take time to offer services such as this. I know that I personally lack the time to do cab artwork. I will def keep you in mind when I build my cab.

From my experience people that can't do, are always "looking for a better deal". Can't count the number of things i've had to fix/correct for people after they had it done by someone else. And they wonder why the price now is higher then before....hmmm.....

Not meant to flame anyone, just voicing an opinion from experience as billpa said, either way if someone can get their cab lookin top notch, i say go for it.

Gbeef, keep on doin what your doin, the work your putting out is damn smooth!!

Wow man, great artwork. Truly impressive. Labor of love. I've been doing graphic design for almost 20 yrs and it's great to see the quality of work you have made. What you have here is fantastic, the best I've seen so far and I've been looking around. People outside of the creative environment are not always knowledgeable about the time and software needed to make these designs come to life.

Working for peanuts isn't fun and the machine/ software plus updates is pricey. Just let the one's who don't get it know if they think they can get a better deal then by all means...

I enjoy it because of the reactions I get from the people I work with. Dazz's machine will be a knockout and it's great to be able to help him achieve that with his cab design theme. The Twilight files saved me a ton of time and I appreciate having items sent my way and then I can focus on making the custom changes. A real time saver and allows me to bring the idea to life with color and balance.

Keep up the killer design work, it would be great to meetup someday. This community rocks!

All the best,

Josh

Hey Bill.

Yep The stuff on my ebay was all custom illustration drawn from scratch everything was ground up. That stuff is my own brand.

Josh

Thanks Josh i saw the work you did on Dazz's machine it looked great. I loved TZ,its a fresh approach also, it was similar idea my Attack from the Pinz machine. Keeping the style but reinventing the design making it better! I think having fun with a design is the key and seeing peoples reactions is great. I've been doing this for about 10+ years, its a nice break over corporate work, which takes its toll over time.

In the future if i have some down time i will give back to the HP community and do a cabinet design based on hyper-spin. Cuz this FE ROCKS!
