    Haha thanks! I want it too :D

    Sure about that:D

    Glad you like it!

    Thanks man! I use a Canon 500D with a 50 mm 1.8F lens normally.

    Thanks man, and dont worry about the late entry. I just hope you stick along for the ride:D

    hahaha:D It fits alright. But yeah, the cnc is massive :D

    Thanks man! So am I!

    ;) Well, you see most of the progress before I do:D

    Thanks man! I aim to impress:D

    Thanks man! Myrizzle is the true wizard here with the CNC. I just design the stuff, and complain a lot to him :D

    I know its a day late, but I will show you a quick update now:D

    So, we got some more machining done today, but did not have the time to do it all. The blocks are machined in 3 steps, and we need to run the last finishing pass to give it that "ohhhhhhhh shiiinyyy" look.

    That is all I got for now:D I hope to be able to get some more shots soon!

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's a game. It reminds me of some of its concept art:

    Thought so. 'Twas an awesome game :D Turned out a bit different from the concept though. So it confused me a bit.

    :rock:

    Had a bit of a setback, but pics are below, and description why:D

    Thanks man! Never played that game:worried:

    Thanks!

    That is some nice art! Maybe I should check the game out.

    Concept still looks nice:D So little time for gaming, and so many games I would like to play:wallbash:

    Glad I still have that effect on you ;)

    Alright guys - minor setback. I will leave these pictures here, and see if any of you can spot the error on this panel. A new one is already half way done. On the bright side, I could test out finishes on this one. I tried a mirror polish, and two different types of micro glas blasting. I decided on the rough glas blasting as that fits the overall theme the best IMO.

    Thats all for now. This setback was really a kick in the ballsack as it takes precious time away from the other panels. But **** happens:D

    I can't spot the error. Send the panel to me for closer inspection. ;)

    tried to spot the error, but ended up just looking at the panel in amazement with what i can only assume was a stupid facial expression...

    Awesome-est failure ever.
    My only guess would be the material wasn't thick enough, and those flat spots are not supposed to be there.

    Looks like the angle on the top left polygon flattens out too soon, is that the fault? Mind the original render is made of tris, and this one has quads, so I'm confused!
