How do you custom render the button for ToolStripComboBox ?

I need to custom render the arrow on a ToolStripComboBox.  I have tried making a ToolStripProfessional Renderer but can't seem to figure out a way to make it work that way.  Either vb or C# is fine.

Yes, I have seen that post and I was hoping there was some other simpler way that I haven't come across yet.
