Art resources for DIY arcade machines

The second coat of black paint went on this afternoon. As things were moving along quite nicely I started thinking about the side art I wanted to get printed. I went to localarcade.com only to find they’ve been shutdown due to spam-related activities!

Luckily google came to the rescue and found http://vectorlib.free.fr/ – they had exactly what I was looking for. Adobe Illustrator versions (vector graphics) and all.

The beginning of the end…painting the arcade machine

I have started painting the arcade machine. I had a first draft attempt at the undercoat this afternoon. I have to flip the top half over tomorrow to finish. It’s quite hot at the moment (low-to-mid 30 degrees Celsius) so I shoud nearly be able to put the first coat of black gloss on tomorrow afternoon…
