Kinda old. Ibanez distortion I like, although it breaks easily. Made in PSP, no tricks. Reference was used  (same effect placed at angle on desk). Doesn't stand to closer inspection that 1x zoom. No idea why 15 colours instead of 16.

Cool beans.  I have an Ibanez distortion just like that, but it's not the stomp box.

Great detail and volumes rendering. I love how the brownish color fits the greay surfaces, and also the bevelling looks great.

btw don't buy this Ibanez box, dunno if they even make it anymore. As with most ibanez stuff, the electronic stuff is easily broken. I have to stomp on it 3-5 times until it switches on now, and a former bandmate who loved the tone bought it and has the same problems up to today. He doesn't switch it off to clean tone at all though, so he's got that going for him :P

That's the only real effect box I use nowdays. Guitar goes to this, this goes to sound blaster rack, signal gets processed in Cakewalk Sonar, then through Native Instruments Guitar Rig and out forth on my compositions, heh.

Used to have a delay, a chorus, an equalizer, a compression, another distortion and a  cheap multieffect unit  for the wah and other minor tweaks on my effect chain but since I no longer play live, Guitar Rig is fine for me. If I ever go live again, I think I'm too spoiled and I'll have to take my computer with me :P

HEY make the DOD Gonkulator next.  Don't do any boss pedals.  Boss = garbage.

Five + Favorite = This.

Very cool.  As DiOxygen said, I would fix the knobs.  Also, it doesn't look as though there's much of a gap below the pedal.  In other words, it doesn't look like it would stomp that far. 

Very beautiful, though.

Its wonderful.. everything is.

the only thing that catched my attention is the last circular button(farthest from us). the perspective look wrong on it, as if he was a bit tilted.

It is a pretty perfect work none the less. :D

This is fu* awsome,  I can´t belive how god you made those skratches and wethering  
And the shading is not to play whit either
Deffenetly a favourite and  and a  five

Awesome man. I own a DS7 distortion myself, and looking at it I see a few differences:
-pedal seems too short compared to the original
-the drive, level and EQ buttons are more circular on top and enter the pedal casing more when they are clicked in
-isn't the SM7 sticker on the pedal usualy cyan?

Sorry for nitpicking, just minor stuff, I like the style you used and this is going into my favourites.
