Segment from "Pinvision HD" a screensaver/party loop I am working on. Enjoy!
I've already told ya to your face how much I like this, but a little Pinside love never hurt! Very nice, very tasteful, keep 'em coming!
That was well done. I'd like to see one with the full back glass montage next if you ever get the time. I'd project that on the wall of the game room in a continuous loop. I think that would be cool.
Nice. I would have enjoyed it better if it got into some more modern babes/recent games. Sort of like "a chronological progression of pinball babes through the years". Maybe the background music could change to, 50s, 60s, 70s etc... as the video rolls on. Backglass Babes Vol. 2 perhaps.
Good work! The only suggestion I would have would be that it would be great to have the names of the games and their dates along with the pictures!
@canea - what is the fun in that?! There are plenty of places to learn about the games, this is to enjoy the art. Many other places to get yourself pinducated!
This project is meant for more of a "lean back" experience than a "lean forward" one. This will be a looping DVD of pinball art for folks to casually enjoy during pinparties with their pinfriends while they enjoy their pindrinks. (Instead of ESPN, Commercials and "lip flap" - a big pet peeve of mine - Like, why even have the TV on during a party if you are just going to have commercial TV on with the sound down?!? Rubes!)
I kid the rubes - you know I love ya!

Very entertaining but you missed Old Coney Island..........a great looking and playing pin.
@Raddoxx I agree Mad Dog DC does draws some nice female figures but their faces usually look like two dollar hookers looking for their next trick so they can pay for their next score. As far as your specific example is concerned... I am no prude (I've done work for Playboy and Vivid) but this reel is designed for a broader audience than just me.
@PapaJohn and Raddoxx Still a work in progress. (and there are about 10 sections like this that you have not seen yet - see also "Backglass Boogie Vol. 1) I go to as many shows and collections and (photo) grab what I can. OCI is a beautiful bg (and Babe!) I have never had the pleasure of seeing that one in person. If you want to send a HQ pic, please PM me.
That said, all the photos are ones that I took myself with the exception of a couple nice contributions from Pinsiders Korn and Neo. None of these are taken from the internet - let alone IPDB. (thats cheating!)
Thanks for checking it out!
Man, I like your approch to Pinball. The art is a big part of the experience. And I think the machines that balance game features with the art package are the best ones. And I do tend to gravitate to the ones with the female form.
cwg - that is one of the coolest custom paint/retheme jobs I have ever seen, if not the coolest!
I would love to play this some day. (and more than happy to incorporate some pics in another slideshow, if I may? )
Great game choice too (WMS Flash) as it's a great game in need of a new art package. The colors are really cool too - a rich palate not seen on another pin. kudos!
Thanks for the kind words.
You have my permission to use whatever you like. Best way to self promote in my book. I've tried different techniques over the years, watercolor, acrylic, digital. I'm thinking that this vector approach over pencil sketch produces a diserable effect that people respond to. I took Flash to ZAPCON (our 1st convention) here in Arizona. I'd say it was a success with the public. Very encouraging. I'm gonna keep trying to explore new ideas with this medium. Maybe try using my Gorgar as a structure for a new piece unless I can find a dirt cheap machine I can totally redo. Thanks for the great review!
Cwg, that was your Flash? Wow! First off, let me say Flash was my first game and I lean to the purist side pretty hard...so I'm a REALLY tough audience for a reworking of the theme. But that thing is beautiful! So different, and such detail, I was shocked to say I was really into it! I didn't WANT to like it, but it kept drawing me back! What a brilliant effort, good for you; I'm as stubborn as they come and you made me turn a corner. Hats off.
PinballMolly! That's it, I took some time off from my art efforts but now I'm ashamed of myself! I've seen your Youtube clip and I can always pick out a "Flash" in a crowd. Recognized you at the show and actually wondered what you thought about the Flash. Well that answers that. Glad it "works" for others too. Thanks so much!
Molly, you got to not only see it but play it already!?! I'm jealous!
CWG, Molly ain't fooling! She is one tough customer when it comes to what folks do to their machines. So tough that I am afraid to show her the lighting mods done to my Spirit. So the fact that she is digging your Flash is quite the accomplishment!
Honest, Molly - I really am scared to show it to you. (and nobody else)
Laser Ball has this red-haired woman in a green dress on the backglass, but the playfield shots of her are better (image from ipdb.org):
Thanks Finrod. I have not seen that game in a long time and forgot about how cool that pf is! Hopefully, I will see one at Pinburgh this weekned.
Not opposed to pf art (or cabinet art for that matter) Some of my other vid pieces include pf art as well and not all of them are just "Babe" pieces.
If it looks cool and it makes you think of the beauty of pinball - I'm in!
Hahaha I was also going NUTS on that Laser Ball, what a blast; after three or so games on it I started texting people to find me one. Ty I'm not going to yell at ya for whatever godawful LED hellscape you turned your Spirit into, haha; I just want to play it. I swear mum's the word, I'll keep my mouth shut all the way but I might need to cool my eyeballs off in your pool. The Spirit I fell in love with was blinding! I get why people like LEDs, I just prefer the incandescent look.
Wait'll you get to see this Flash; I took a few more pics I'll show ya in the Burgh!
