I have a friend who runs a toy store and he just expanded his lot along with adding about 5 arcade cabinets, one of which is a MAME machine with 2000 games on it. If I had a medal to give to anyone who has accomplished this feat of nostalgic restoration, it goes to him.
I like the colors in the piece, along with the composition.

This picture really brings back the fond memories I had for arcade gaming back in the day. I see a rival schools & KOF97 cabinet which was definitely my game back then along with MvsC2. I really dig the lighting effects that went into this piece, and it really lends to the arcade vibe and feel. Dope work, Jessie. Keep up the great work.

This is just beautiful.  I'm just thinking about the Satudays I spent heading to the local Tilt or Nickel City.  I miss arcades :(

Eyecandy at the arcade; just too bad this kind of eye candy isn't a daily norm anymore.  Great work on recreating some of our childhoods.

My dear, I'd ALWAYS do art for my good buddy BGC. I even snuck in a couple pieces I made for his previous albums.

They didn't have that in the arcades I went to. They had Metal Slug instead if that was any consolation.
