Split-Screen graphical collab

In an effort to overload you with detail to aid my chances of winning the swag I'm looking for your collective input for my design to modify my MadCatz Tournament Edition arcade stick, below is the image, click here for a far larger, much fuzzier version.

The button surrounds aren't finished, but the plan is this:
I buy some vinyl dye that is the same colour as the background - or similar and can change the background to match it, but pretty much a slate grey affair. I then proceed to spray the black and white areas (including the white buttons and their surrounds) in this grey colour, I also get a pink spray similar to one of the stripes and use that for the boundary of the faceplate. The two remaining buttons will become black, as will their surrounds. The ball of the stick I'm undecided on and might just leave it white for now.

The image is a modified version of The 6th Child by j3concepts (whom I love) and will be for personal use only, and it is clearly unfinished at the minute so I think that's fine. I'll only provide substandard pictures of the finished thing! To tie it all in to Street Fighter's current iteration the areas around the button surrounds will have the stylised ink splashes that make this iteration so beautiful to watch. (these are currently just dark grey circles...)

Any input would be greatly appreciated and may make it onto the final thing! Obviously I have to fit 'split-screen' on there somewhere, but I'll figure that out later.

No longer will my arcade stick be a thing of hideous facade, but a beautiful and personal entity to be cherished. Provided the common law wife permits such things.

Oops, forgot to mention that the image will be printed on some kind of laminate at 1000+ dpi for awesome quality, then its just a case of taking the buttons and stick ball off and pressing it on. My bad.

I can't think of anything that needs to be added, other than the ink flourishes you mentioned. Are you branding it with the Split-Screen name? Man, I'm honoured! Maybe you could get that done in the same inky style.

Maybe you could design it ;)
