Opinion Needed!

What's goin on errbody. It's been a while since I've done anything with my stick and I've been pretty bored with it so I figured I would finally update the artwork on my TE MadCatz. Here's the artwork I'm going probably use. I'm definitely going to be ordering a bubble balltop in purple but I'm still undecided on what colors I should go with for pushbuttons:     
 

 

#1 -    Standard TE buttons (White & Black)
#2 -     Purple Buttons with Purple and Black for the last two
#3 -    Clear Purple with the artwork cut into the buttons 
#4 -    Clear White with the artwork cut into the buttons  
#5 -    Solid Purple Buttons all the way across 
 
Call me indecisive but i have a bad habit of constantly changing the look of my stick and get a weird enjoyment out of modding haha. Thanks for your help and if anyone't thinking of modding their own, I'd be more than happy to offer my thoughts.

I say the clear purple. 
 
Also; Dhalsim is awesome. Way to represent.

I'm kinda leaning that way

What he said.  If you want to keep that "paint splash", try a different color like yellow or something that matches Sim.

I'm feelin the different paint splash. I usually don't use Sim's default color so I wanted it to standout a little. Clear purple all the way across?

That looks sexy. 
 
But no, Dhalsim is not awesome. At all.

@EvilGreenDevil:
Yeah, I'm with them. I'd get rid of the purple. Don't really know what color to replace it with, though. Just try to match Dhalsim in some way.

Ever had the feeling that... given the color scheme, you know these 2 colors dont go... yet it does in some weird way? 
Thats what i see. 
 
I'd ... yeah, clear purple. defiantely.
#10 Posted by EvilGreenDevil (197 posts) -

ok definite in the clear purple but for all 8???  I was thinking the primary 6 for sure but still up in the air for the last two.

You weak pathetic fool, you know nothing. Don't make me ban you.

I like the purple. I kinda clashes, but in a good way.

#15 Posted by EvilGreenDevil (197 posts) -

 I dunno I have everything in my cart but I'm not ready to pull the trigger.  OK so definitely going with the clear purple but what about buttons #4 and #8? I would like to have them be slightly different than the standard 6. I was thinking clear white or something.

yeah that would look dope, go with what you feel man, I didn't ask anyone for input on my color selection, because if I did I knew I would just end up going with what I wanted anyway. And my stick turned out DOPE, thanks to me of course. 
  



Murderous TE

@lordofultima: and you're so modest too!
#18 Posted by EvilGreenDevil (197 posts) -

haha thanks for your modest and honest input. I'll have to pull the trigger and order but I'll be sure to post pics back in this thread for you to see. Then you can do a nice comparison of mine to that mono-tone shoe box with buttons on it that you call an arcade stick :-)

Your page will remain naked forever Captain Douche.

@Gambit: I will only put worthwhile matches up. So yes, if everybody is as horrible as you, it will in fact remain naked.

 Artwork is now printed and my buttons came in from LL. I'll be putting everything together this afternoon and post the pics.  
 
EDIT:   Finally finished up this weekend. I think the purple actually came out deeper than the image made it seem which is better IMO. I went back and forth between how to handle the 2 buttons on the right, I ended up going with just clear white ones. It's a bit of an adjustment to the Seimitsu buttons from the Sanwa's I'm use to but anything is better than stock Hori buttons. I have  more pics posted under my profile if you wanna see the progression from the original stick to this. Last thing: I'm going to replace the dustwasher to be either clear plastic or white which will be very very small (about half the diameter of the stock dustwasher).     
Let me know what you guys think!
