So I got to work laying down a few coats of red today. Of course I had to severely tape up the xbox beforehand:
If anyone ever wonders a good way to hold the top of the xbox while painting or hang it while drying, here is my 'technique':
Once I gave it a little time to dry, I pulled off the tape and here is what I've got so far. I still need to work on the area around the jewel, which I am back and forth on whether I would like a black, white or red to surround a (for now) white jewel that lights up via LEDs...
The Money Shot:
I also test-printed my 'The Wall' Logo which I am vectoring in photoshop. Here is the results on regular paper
, I will print this on decal paper and see how it turns out. If it doesn't turn out very good I may take it to a sign shop to get it printed professionally:
The Bottom Half, of course:
Get the 'scream' image together and in a shape worthy of printing. BTW, the 'scream' is actually Syd Barrett, as mentioned above. It is him 'melting' and has became a symbol of 'The Wall' as much as the wall itself.
Trivia: Did you know that Pink Floyd's 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond', part of the 'Wish You Were Here' album, was a tribute to Syd Barrett?
