Looks like I'm on to something with these monthly showcases. With the number of requests for commissions after last months showcase, I've actually had to turn away people or move them to next month. So, without further ado, here's this months showcase.
As with the previous showcase, this is all stuff that was accomplished this month, minus any that were included in the MvC3 Showcase. All these are also paid commissions.
First off is this HRAP 3 piece. This piece features Cammy and Juri from Street Fighter. This piece uses a unique effect that makes the background (with Cammy) look like it was painted on, or more precisely, splattered on.
This Deadpool "Merc With A Mouth Edition" features a unique "page turning" effect at the bottom right of the template. This bit took the longest to finish since it took awhile to find an image that would look right under a half turned page since (over half the image is usually covered by the "previous page"). Other details include the bullet holes as well as the Deadpool logo on the upper right (as requested by the customer).
Now for something different, a HRAP.V-series (V3/VX) top panel design made to look like a Sega Astro City arcade panel (similar to my Virtua Stick base template for the MadCatz. T.E.). Due to the way the top panel of the V-series is laid out, I opted for a Player 2 look with the small window with the Astro City labels on the left, instead of the right in a Player 1 layout.
Now for a custom Versus City styled design. The customer for this asked for a slightly different design from the usual Versus City pieces for the area around the joystick. What we have here then is a large black circle with 8-directional arrows as usually seen in old American Street Fighter cabinets. To add a bit of flair, the circle isn't opaque, but it translucent with a carbon fibre texture.
Now for a couple of Voltech VAS-HG designs. Here we have a Wu-Tang Clan "Wu-Massacre" based design made to look like a comic book/album cover featuring some Method Man from the aforementioned album. In addition to this, the customer also wanted a bottom panel design.
This is the bottom panel cover design for the previous, Wu Tang VAS-HG. Aside from the top and bottom carbon borders, the red text and paint splatter were not part of the original image and were added at the customer's request.
Another VAS-HG design. This one is an Air Gear design with the character art (Kururu Sumeragi) overlaid on a whie carbon background. This provides for a nice, minimalist, yet not empty effect. It looks almost as if the art was painted over the carbon fibre.
And that concludes this February's showcase, or at least those comissions that I was able to complete. The rest, hopefully they'll be done next month.
