Help me design my fight stick.

#1 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

So I might be getting a fight stick today and I'm not sure what my "custom" faceplate should be. I just got GIMP so I have tools to do so. I would love to make my own desing, but I lack the skills to start from scratch. If anyone could start me out with nay ideas and basic template that would be great. I'm not a making a character specific face (Pantyshot's stick for example).

they have the template for the TE stick, SE stuff and others on shoryuken.com in the tech section.
as far as finding images, just google stuff.

you can find some pretty kick ass wallpapers online that can sort of give you an idea on what you want. 
for example, type in "Blue Wallpapers" on google... 
 
 
dude... 
 
From there, let your imagination fly.

@PantyshotMQN:  Your gonna have to fork that over to me.
#12 Posted by YetiAntics (1489 posts) -

Hmm, this is gonna be harder than i thought. the BG image at the Bombcast page is too small, the pic in near the middle, and i cant snip out the pic in photoshop out to move it freely. 
Oh well, perhaps i need to think this one through.

Somewhere on it, put JOINT OPS, BRO, and BLUNT TRAUMA, DAWG.
