Strangest console mod I've seen in a while

I saw this while browsing the bay of e. I can't decide if it's hideous or beautiful. Maybe it's both.

The artist (and he is definitely that) has elected not only to paint his N64, but also to sculpt a moon onto the cartridge port in the style of Majora's mask.

Your thoughts?


Edit: standard disclaimer. This is not my ebay sale. I do not know the seller. I do not endorse the seller. I simply find this item interesting enough that it's worth discussion.

Looks like the castlevania themed Snes. That thing was awesome

It is a strange one to figure out. I'm leaning towards hideous, though.
The talent is there but I'm thinking this piece may not be the best example of showcasing it.

Yeah, its not complete crap by any means... I would have rather seen the same thing airbrushed or hand painted though in order to keep the original design of the console.

I like the moon and most of the color palette.

This is better than I could do - but, it is still pretty poor.

The paint isn't sealed - if you zoom on the pics you can see bubbles and dimples all through the paint - this creates an uncomfortable feel, particularly in humid environments - it'll feel tacky and chip easily. Spray paint bubbles like that just in the way it's applied, you need a clear coat that rolls and fills the grooves and protects the paint.

The power and reset buttons stand out and not ina good way - should have either been a complimentary color to the top palette, or just the deep gray/blue the same as the rest.

The big mistake was sticker decals - they just look stupid next to some decent artwork.

Very cool!

Majora's Mask? Haven't really played it but ...I recognize that guy from an old archived pic on my computer?

Finally, an N64 that can frighten children.

Triforce above controller port 3 is a little uneven.
