    So, there is good reason for the Matte Finish on a DSi, other than the lack of fingerprints XD
    What did "i" do? I made a stencil out of an inverted skull printed on cardstock, then cut it out and laid it over my DSi's surface. I traced it with the silver marker and then removed the stencil for coloring. Then I put "DSi" on there, just for fun XD

    Please note, I've done a few more touch-ups since this photo, things are a bit neater and more solid.

    Not bad. It would look better on a black DSi [​IMG]

    Yeah, I know, but I liked the blue. Tell you what, if I can get someone to let me draw on their black DSi, then I'll do it XD

    Would have been better with spraypaint, so you couldn't see the pen marks. And if you'd got someone with better handwriting to write DSi [​IMG] Otherwise, good work.

    ahaha. hilarious.
    imho, I think it totally ruined a perfectly good handheld and killed any possibility of returns for defects or resell value.
    DSi added "logo" killed it especially being silver on a baby blue. haha.

    OK, once more, this guy did this because he wanted it that way and he likes it, no need for comments such as "you ruined it", "it sucks" etc. That is considered as flaming..

    You can leave constructive criticism, or you can say something nice about it..

    And also, markers can be cleaned up..

    Be nice guys/gals [​IMG]

    The logo is okay, not sure about the 'DSi' part though. And it would have looked very nice on a black DSi, with spay paint.

    I'm tempted to do a golden Triforce on mine when I get it. Then again, I'm the guy who's been waiting for LOZ OoT and MM to be ported onto the DS(i). [​IMG]

    IMHO, it looks kind of homemade. Would've looked a LOT better with spraypaint.

    The "DSi looked kinda.... extra. Maybe he should have drawn something else in its place or leave it blank.

    I've done more touch-ups since the first image, things are looking neater and neater, and it looks better in person.

    I'd like to do something like that to but maybe with spray paint and a stencil cause if I didn't do it with that it would look horrible [​IMG] so can you wipe it off?
