illustrated ES theme for GB0

EDIT: Fixed the theme.xml files to work with the correct system.svg files. Now everything should work. Also added a retropie setup image and fixed a couple of allignment issues.

I'm an illustrator by proffesion and while I wait for some parts I took the time to try and make a theme for the GB0. At first I just did to check out how it's done but now I thought that maybe some other people may like it. It's designed for low res screens.

It's very incomplete (not all systems are supported and design wise it needs some more tweeking). When everything is done I'll upload all the images in a gallery free for use.

What's included up until now:

retropie
3do
amiga
amstrad
apple2
atari2600
atari800
atari5200
atari7800
gamegear
gameboy
gameboy color
gameboy advance
lynx
mame
megadrive
neo geo
neo geo pocket color
nes
snes
turbogfx16

There are no screenshots simply because I built it using FTP and couldn't figure out how to make screenshots of the system or emulate it on a mac :P But here are a couple of the illustrations.

I'm still not happy with some of the work to be honest because it was rushed. The amstrad and some atari ones being a prticular sore. I'll probably update them. At least the atari illustrations :P.

I was kind of thinking the same thing :)
For the N64 it would probably be conker just for the sheer meta fun factor :P.
I was thinking of ZOOL for the Amiga...

The big problem are going to be the 3DO and similar consoles I have no clue about because I've never played them. So if anyone has any suggestions for any console that isn't already included just fire away ;).

I'm working on it but with my regular job being quite packed at the start of the year I have to work some overtime. Some illustrations are already done but not implemented yet :)

Sorry to say I had to put the project on hold for a while. I got swamped with commisions and I can't find the time to finish it. I'll definetly try to do it but I can't make any promises. Some additional consoles were illustrated and designed but not implemented yet.
