PSP - Realistic style - Black by TebgDoran PSP - Realistic style - Black by TebgDoran
This one rocks!

It's another version of the PSP. The previous set was iconic, with no markers on the buttons, a flat color fill, and thick outlines to accentuate the recognizable shape. This one, on the other hand, is highly realistic. Basically, I wanted to get it close enough to the real thing to where Sony would consider suing me for trade dress infringement (but not quite close enough to where they'd actually sue me - the Sony and PS family logo have been omitted). ;)

The SVG was created from scratch in Inkscape, with no images imported for tracing or any other purpose. I did have my own PSP by my side to reference.

The SVG is licensed under a Creative Commons license as stated above. Click the Download button on the side to get the editable SVG file. You should be able to edit the file in any editor that supports SVG files, but this designer recommends Inkscape.

Enjoy! I put a lot of work into this one, so if you like it, or if you use it in a work of your own, I'd love a comment. :)

love it. I've that inkscape program on my computor but haven't even tried to do much with it. were you albe to get all that shine from that program?

You want to come by my house and give me a tut, this is simply marvelous..
TebgDoran Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
Yep, the shine was all done in-program. It's just a basic white to transparent white gradient that overflows a curved path so you can see the hard edge.

I do plan to branch out into Inkscape tutorials soon, so who knows, you may just get that tutorial of yours. ;)

Thank you very much for the comment. :)

did you find a good forum for inkscape, it is really what I need. I actually prefer to draw in inkscape as the curves and lines tools are way better. but the learning the program help files are the pits.

Well, I know there's a forum linked on the Inkscape official site. It seems to have some good information too - while checking it out for you, I learned about a feature that I've been wondering about for a while. I always figured it was there somewhere, but I now know how to do it. ;)

So yeah, the link is:

nice! I love how how you did the glares, it really makes it "pop". Only thing is that its kinda short, I held my psp up to the screen and the width is right on but the height is a bit off.
TebgDoran Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
Yep, I see what you're saying. I wasn't actually planning on making it "life sized" in the preview, but the width does look just about spot-on. The vector up there is a noticeable bit shorter than an actual PSP Slim.

Another thing is the scoop of the home-row buttons - Home, Select, and Start - the real PSP buttons are more half-circles, where mine more come to a point than round off.

I'm sure I'll fix these some day. Can I hear a "version 2"? ;)

Thanks for the comment. :)
