maybe make the wwhite beam come from the truss?
and yeah, make it bigger/move it a little
Quote by Scowmoo




You deserved this, Matt.

That looks pretty brutal.

I reckon it'd look good with the bit coming from the truss, as said above.
Also, I reckon it'd look amazing on a black background with all the proper colours and alot of gloss.

i wouldn't have the beam coming straight off the truss. it works better coming off the e string. and definitely keep it black. no need for the rainbow. it looks nicer aesthetically without it.

dude, if yr using photoshop:

from the top tool bar
image>image size
make sure constrain proportions is checked and play with the sizes

-or-

from the top tool bar
edit>transform>scale

eh, i said i cant make it look good being bigger. i know how to do it bigger

you mean high E i guess?

it seems my CS3 pack doesnt have illustrator
and why the hell this image seems so familiar to me, but i dont even know what it means

am i correct to assume you are making a gilmour style-strat?

no you aren't i've never liked copies of artists guitars... MHO every guitar should have its own personality

thats the image from the pink floyd box set from like 15 years ago.

it's a good looking one, but actually not really recognisable

I'll try to rework the triangle, cos it seems too blured for me

ah, i have a question about printing decals on transparent paper... can i print it so the darker image is, the more opaque it gets? because if i printing with only one certain color as a transparent one, than it will have light-grayish tones on it
i hope you guys understand what i mean
its like "Darker" or "Multiply" layer blending mode in PS

i really dont know. i'm sure it can be done having the ink be a bit translucent so you get the desired effect but i seriously doubt that is anything that can be done on a home printer or even at a kinkos. probably a professional print shop would be the place to ask...or.... maybe try to do it with one of those car window tint sheets? nah thatd be too difficult to work with for precision stuff like cutting out an image.

the best way i'm guessing to get the opacity is to forget the whole decal and go with a stencil and some do some airbrushing.
#17
Eh, its ok. I thought about making a les paul style guitar with a black headstock and the Rush 2112 star on the headstock.
Obviously Fassa.
#18
I think it would look better it wasn't angled.

#19
ok, ive asked a couple decal print shops and they said its impossible
so now i'm making fully opaque one
its in gradations of ice blue color and everything between black & white
and its friggin awesome
#20
sorry i can't be of more help , would you mind if I attempted something similar on one of my projects? I'm not sure that I will, just wondering if it'd be cool with you if i did.

of course i wont mind i can give you the prism image itself if you ask

so here's a new one
it seems to be far superior to the first picture
it seems i dont want it bigger, small prism looks kinda neater
i tried it unangled, didnt like
i also updated first post

bump

some of my friends keep saying that 1st one looks better, kinda more natural (go to the first post, now it has 2 pics)
is that so true?
#24
First looks better, neither resembles DSOTM though.

Edit.

Thought these were relevant

sorry, but i find black gloss headstocks on strats a bit tasteless, and full-colored rainbow is going to look too fancy
#27
actually from what i know, no decal shop offers semi-opaque printing. so the edges HAVE to be defined.
i learned it after i did the 1st image, but before the 2nd
black fully defined prism is never going to look better, it will look rather like a rough scetch (at least to me)
thats why i decided to do it in gradations of blue, its great color to imitate transparency

Sir, how come Les Paul can be relevant to DSOTM?
also, as i said, too much colors on guitar look too fancy
i fully support Bill Callahams statement that guitar should look just classy and a bit strict - you should hear it more than look at it

Great players only care about the sound and feel, they could care less about flame tops and ornate pearl inlay. They listen with their ears, not their eyes.


i dont mean to offend anyone who loves their flame tops to death actually these fit some music styles, but for classic rock or blues, i find the statement true

i believe "fancy" is not the proper term here. the word you are looking for is "tacky"
#31
I like the first one better :]

#32
The first one looks more "engraved" and natural which I like, but the more modern white looks really modern and cool, if you inlaid it with pearl or something it would look the tits.
#33
hm, i had a thought that colors suggest like being inlayed, than i though - it'd look much cooler inlayed on fretboard around 12s fret.
i'll have yet to think about it

BTW, if the 1st one was carved into wood and slightly filled with something, that could look very nice
like USACG makes their logo
#34
I'm a graphic designer. The 2nd one is tits.

I'd move it slightly to the left so the distance between the triangle and the edge of the headstock is more even.
#35
I agree with squidlips; I too am a graphic designer and think the second one, when centered properly would be sick. ka-kow!

you mean the distance between each apex of triangle base and headstock edge should be equal, yup?
#37
androidred0100... listened to the humanity - white shirt on your profile. is that you or your band dude?

also, basically move the whole thing left until the difference is less. i don't think quite equal, but yeah.

mmm, very nice dude.

i was going to say before as well, the choices of colours are excellent. that blue really blends well with the metal in the headstock.

i also really like the very very slightly blur, and sliiightly rounded edges of the main triangle. really makes that thing pop imo.
