  1. Hello HS forum followers. In an effort to get more of my 'old Hyper Spin' website posts into one place I'm updating this thread. It appears my updates cutoff around mid 2013. These re-posts will show what many might of missed since then with my custom artwork for members. Thank you. All the best! Josh http://www.jwgfx.com Posted May 31, 2013 Hello spinners & pinners, I wanted to share one of my newest designs - Zombie Pinball Madness. It's is a tribute to the Zombie craze of today. It's one of 6 original designs for Shakenbake's VPcabs production builds. We wanted to evoke a sense of classic Zombie horror with a contemporary sense of doom. Please check out my galleries for these and other designs for Pinball, Bartop, Arcade standup & Pedestal style cabinets. I also offer logo design and pretty much anything else you may need from the design world. If you want to own one of these machines with this design or any of the other offerings please visit this post by Shakenbake: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?23990-Pinball-2000-Complete-Cabinet-3999-Grand-Opening-Special You can also see this design as a completed cabinet at Brad's website: http://www.virtualpinballmachinesrus.com/ Please keep a look out for the other 5 designs. Thanks for checking us out, all the best! Josh
  2. Hello Thomas, Thanks for contacting me. A marquee design wouldn't take to long to make. It'll depend on the complexity of the artwork. BTTF... is that Back to the Future? I can design anything really, it's my job to bring your idea to life. If your interested please email this account and I'll send you some samples and my rates and how to book time on my calendar. jwgfx@at.net Thank you, Josh
  3. Hello Tberry, Thanks for contacting me. Yes reapplying a custom decal set can be easily done. I'm able to design just about anything you can think of. Once the design is finished I send it to Brad Bowman (Lucian045) on the forums for printing. He can ship anywhere in the world. We've worked together exclusively for 5 years. He's the absolute best. Pro grade prints all the way. I've got a few projects in the works now. I'm always looking to work with people to get their custom ideas brought to life. If you think you'd like to work together please let me know. If you email me (link on my website) I'll send you some of my latest samples, rates and how we can schedule time on my future schedule. Thank you, all the best! Josh http://www.jwgfx.com
  4. Hello v1machine, Yes I can help, I've designed a few pedestal cabinets. Please email me direct and I'll send you my info about pricing and include samples of some pedestal cabinets I've made for members over the years. Thank you, Josh jwgfx@att.net
  5. Hello Mr. Jones. The only etching art I have done has been with Mameman. He does toppers that sit on top of pinball machines. He has also done other stuff but I've only made vector art for some of his projects. I'd suggest contacting him about that process. I can help with the designing of the images you'd etch but wouldn't know much about getting them to talk with the system. If you need vector art, things like 'Player 1' and items like that I can design a layout to your liking. We could get it into Adobe Illustrator to the size of the CP layout and you'd at least have the vector art needed for layout. The file formats can be EPS or AI (Illustrator files) that we can saved backwards legacy to talk to your plotter. Please let me know if your interested in working on something like that. Thank you. All the best! Josh
  6. Hello jeanvion, Make sure the file for the logo is set at 300 dpi (dots per inch). Also use RGB as your color setting mode. That's video colors vs. print colors which are typically CMYK. Print color space (CMYK) usually have a less vibrant color look when printing especially for something that is back lite like a marquee.
  7. Hey man. Cool project. Unfortunately I don't have decal artwork for existing cabinets. I'm designing custom designs for clients. So far I haven't had to rebuild or recreate an arcade design. I did clean up and fix some Tales from the Crypt design decals for a pin cabinet. That was fun but very time consuming. Keep searching the net, someone has to have been down that road before. Try contacting these guys: http://www.gameongrafix.com/categories/multi-arcade-graphics Good luck!
  8. Hello BladeZX, Thanks for the message. I haven't made a Mortal Kombat design yet but we can make something really cool for your bartop. Typically a bartop cab can take between 8-12 hours to make a 4 decal set. It'll cost about $150-200 for a custom design. It all depends on how you want it too look. I'll need more info about the design detail to really know the time needed to make it. I email samples of the design when we start. Then we do some back and forth until we get the format you like. Then I make high resolution designs of the samples. Once the design is complete I send it to Brad Bowman for printing. His printing is the absolute best out there. Best material and workmanship. He's Lucian045 on the forums. You can contact him about printing and shipping. I have 19 years experience to both print & tv and can get to an idea rather quickly. I run both Mac & PC at home and have all the latest software. I charge $25 an hour and discount HS members 20% off the final invoice. Please check out my galleries for more ideas. I have made a custom bartop Space Invader themed design called Markade. I require a $75 deposit to start a project. I have a Paypal account for payment. I'll reply to your personal email with some samples of my professional work and we can correspond more if you’re interested. Thank you, all the best! Josh email: jwgfx@att.net www.jwgfx@att.net
  9. Howdy, I sent you an email about your project. Please let me know if your still needing some design services. Thank you!
  10. Hello flip1950, Thanks for contacting me. I appreciate you liking my artwork and wanting to see more. If you look through my albums you can see some different generic sets made for members. Also lots of original and themed designs for cabs as well. If you email me I'll respond with some samples of my day job (NBC television) design. I've been working in broadcast and print graphic design for 20 years and have all the latest programs to make custom designs. Please send me an email and I'll send you more info on rates and booking time for your project. If you like the generic Hyper Pin base set that's $295 plus shipping. Brad Bowman (Lucian045) on the forums and I have been offering this set to members. He's an absolute pro with printing and his decal sets quality are second to none. We can also add some custom alterations to it as well. The additional cost depends on the amount of time needed to make changes. I've done a few of those and they are in my albums section of my profile. My website in more like a dummy page for now and I hope to have something better this year. If you click on the email me section you'll get my address. Here's my address it is if it's not working: jwgfx@att.net Thank you. Respectfully yours, Josh
  11. Hello Dave, I'm reading your email now. Sounds like a cool project. Thanks for contacting me. I'll send you some more info to your email. Thank you, all the best! Josh
  12. Hello LD, Mortal Kombat would be sweet. I haven't made one of those but I love the artwork and use of colors and effects. Please keep me in mind if you need artwork. Please check out my galleries too for some inspiration. There are so many cool ideas anything's possible. You can send me an email from my website: jwgfx.com Thank you!
  13. Thanks pofo14! Labor of love. These designs always seem to get some positive reviews. Thanks for commenting!
  14. Wow Andy that looks fantastic, way to go man! I love the perfectly lined up wrap in the front. The 3D grid idea in the background looks terrific. Thanks for making a custom out of our design pack. Love the pictures, thanks for sharing!
  15. Just the design. Print and shipping is up to you. I recommend Lucian045 on the forums for printing. He ships to customers all over the world. He's quality prints and attention to detail are the absolute best!
  16. Thanks jeanvion! The designs people request average around that cost. Some are more and some are less. I've done just the marquees for people which would be inexpensive. It's all about the time needed to bring an idea to life and have it look good. It'll be based on what you are trying to make and how much of it you need for the cabinet. Items like the control panel, kick plate, sides, etc... that time adds up. Another example of time needed is the custom design title - that may have 3D vs 2D elements, stuff like that. Also all my projects are designed at 300 dpi which makes the images look great for printing but take time to clean up, layer and build in large format Photoshop files. Thanks for checking out my work and please don't hesitate to ask me about what your looking to do for your project. Thank you!
  17. Hello Demonseed, yes sir. Please check out my galleries. Arcade Mame stand up machines, pedestal cabinets, bartops and pinball cabs. You name it I can make it. Thanks for asking!
  18. Hello TJC, It all depends on the complexity of the design. 2D vs 3D in the logo for example. PM was a 2D design title which isn't as time consuming as a 3D title logo. Predator Mame was 16 hours in total. I was supplied with a CP design & marquee samples so I had the client's rough layout which saved time. If we added a kick plate to PM that would of been another 2 hours. Tough to say without knowing what the title or logo would be as well. I would say maybe about a 18-22 hours design build which would cost about $360-440 range after your HS 20% discount. Thanks for asking. Please let me know if you need anything more. Check out my galleries for more examples of my designs. Also please check out my website too, it's just getting started (just a dummy page) & has a link for emailing me about design work. www.jwgfx.com Thank you, Josh
  19. Hello bluc, Thank you for the contact. I've custom designed a few bartops. Hard to say how much time is needed without knowing what sort of design your wanting. Measurements are great. I'll also need to know how the CP buttons are laid out. I have 19 years’ experience in broadcast and print design. I run both Mac & PC at home and have all the latest software. I have designed arcade inspired custom designs for clients all over the world; France, Netherlands, Australia, United Kingdom and many across the US. Also please check out my galleries on HS for some more samples. As you know I charge $25 an hour and offer a 20% discount off the final invoice for HS members. I base my design projects on how much is needed per project. A typical bartop (2 sides, a marquee and CP) takes around 8-16 hours. I require a $75 deposit to start and book time for new clients. I'm booked through the end of August and will be taking on new clients for September. Please let me know if you're interested and we can plan on getting your project started next month. Please send me an IM with your email and I'll reply with some samples of some bartops and my design work in both tv & print. Thank you, all the best! Josh
  20. I sent you a PM with some info about custom design builds. Thanks for contacting me!
  21. Thanks Vince! It was a pleasure making this happen the way you wanted. That was a fun one and I can't wait to see it as a completed cabinet. The sides with the lights are going to look awesome, thank you!!!
  22. Hello spinners, I just completed a stand up arcade cab design I wanted to share. The client had an interesting challenge in that he wanted to recess the Predator skull on the sides of the build. Add some LED lighting and he ends up with a pretty sweet Predator design. Attached are some pics of the design build. Vince was a great client to work with and provided me with some time saving Photoshop and Illustrator files to hit the ground running. The CP was pretty much finished but we made it look more like the jungle Aztec feel we made after some early concept designs. The Side sample panels show the inlay skull design that will live behind the side panels. A circular hole will be cut out to recess the skull with illuminated LED light to pop the design on both sides. Predator Control Panel was based on the client's design layout. Originally the design was supplied to me as a space themed controller but we changed to the ancient Aztec look instead. I found a great Predator movie title font that gets juxtaposed with the Mame classic text treatment. Put it all together and we get a great looking Predator tribute with some very cool contrast of color and balance. Great project, thanks Vince! If you’re interested in doing an arcade cab design please PM me about your ideas. Thank you. All the best! Josh
  23. Thanks for the contact. We messaged each other back in January. Sorry but I'm still not following with what your wanting to do. I'll need some more info. Please PM me and we can discuss what you'd like for me to possibly help you with. Thank you, Josh
  24. Thanks EE, I always appreciate you checking in and letting me know what you think. Some really good detail in this one, especially the custom sword work. The lightning is a real treat to make and the colors pop off the backgrounds. Minty clean with some easy to recognize imagery. Win win, thanks man. Take care!
  25. Hey Tony, I just fired off an email with some samples and info for you. Thanks!!
