G'day guys,

At the moment i'm putting a few finishing touches on my MAME arcade cab and I want to get an original marquee made up for it because my photoshop skillz are non-existant and I can't do it myself.

So more or less it's gotta be in about the same shape as a sig, only be in fairly good quality as it's getting printed pretty big by a friend that's a signwriter on vinyl.

In the design I want a closeup of Raiden from Mortal Kombat (the oldschool one from MK1 or 2) blue lightning on black background and maybe a MK logo and whatever else you think might be good.

So if any of you can do a good job post up an example and if I like it we'll work out how much you'd like for it in higher res. (c'mon now don't be shy! wink.gif )

I can only send money via paypal (credit card).

Cheers! smile.gif

Is there any text that you would like in it? or any specific colors? I've got a basic design worked out, but it would be easier with a few more specifics.

I don't really think it'll need any text. The arcade cabinet is all black with blue lightning on the control panel so yeah i dunno.. I'm not really the creative type tongue.gif Let me know how ya go

If someone can find me a high-res Raiden I'll try, but I'm having trouble finding him from MK1 or 2.

I just spent a few hours searching through google and mk sites and didn't find any decent old stuff either.

Found this new one though, in it he's kinda got the old mk2/3 style look in it. Maybe the top of his body can be taken from it.

Well I actually want to print it out to about 2 1/2 feet wide and a bit less than a foot tall.
It's going to be printed on vinyl and stuck onto a bit of plexiglass which will have a fluro light behind it.

So I guess the higher the resolution the better and the dimensions of it will have to be about two and a half times wider than what it is tall, if that's cool for any of you to do.

That should be cool, can always trim or stretch it a bit before it's printed.
