One of my side-gigs is doing custom airbrush painting on Xbox controllers for people. This one was for a customer in Billings, MT that wanted a Ken Block themed controller to be similar to his Ford Festiva car. I started with the running paint scheme, then the #43 skull, Monster energy drink logo, and free-hand drew the shoe splatter to replicate the splatter on the front & side of the car. I also painted a grille pattern on the reset panel of the controller to give it a bit more feel for the car. I capped it off by putting the customer's gamer handle "Ace" in orange paint splatter letters as well.

Cool! Will the guy actually use the controller? Seems like the paint would wear off rather quickly with the excessive handling game controllers get.

Yes he's using it. I clear coat my controllers with a hard shell clear coat (the same as on your car) to resist the wear and tear of gaming.

Cool. Figured a clear would wear off as well, but an automotive clear would hold up pretty well.

I know exactly what you're talking about. I've seen on online and it's absolutely the coolest thing I've seen for video gaming.
