How are you going to know what keys are which lol
Amazing work otherwise!
Nah, I'll keep it myself for the mean time. Doubt there'll be potential buyers unless they wanna wake up screaming every morning. Pro modder, I don't know. Here, you can basically feed yourself grass and rain water if you wanna run a modding business lol. Someone suggested I should make and sell fan grills like the one I did but *shrug* we'll see how things goes after the next mod.
Haha yeah to keep the look, else would be sticking out as the key is much taller than the frame itself.
I separated them into their batches before layering them. Arrange them separately all the way till the clear coat.
And all 3 of you, glad you like what you see The update is a lil late compared to what I anticipated. Rained off and on from sunrise till even after sunset here today so didn't wanna risk doing a paint job today. Kinda overdid the purple thing, it looks like Barney now so gonna fix the colors tomorrow morning when I can see the difference better. Then I'll finish off with the remaining keys (everything below ~ to backspace) and do an update.
Got em ready early in the morning. I guess I beat the birdies to it. And then after couple of layers and clear coat...
Finds the purple to be extremely shiny. Although I thought of darkening the whole keyboard and touch up part of it with darker colors, decided not to. Instead of using brown this time, I tried red oxide and it stood out better as a "sticky mod". Then the more I look at it, the more I got used to it so heck, no redo for my "cute" barney keyboard.
I can probably rest my ciggs on the gaps
The home-del section.
What matters the most is.. it still works
Nuh uh, not done yet. Now to move on to the mousepad. Yeah, this post is fully typed with my "new" letterless keyboard. Mwehehehehe.
Holy Cheesecake, superb job on the keyboard.
Thanks mate. Im dead tired after 26 hours of no sleep. And btw, YOU ARE FAST!
nex 'victim' will b ur mouse?hehe
WOW!!! you got that keyboard turned into something amazing! Beautiful
lol I don't know, I'm still considering should I go for the mouse after the mousepad...
Thank you mate. Mousepad coming soon (prob in another 2 days to get the images in my head right)
Nice work, that's hard to guess it's made of paper since you painted it
yir I'll look forward to that
ups sorry, double post
Thanks mateys. Come back for more, I ain't done with it yet.
I have no idea why I did this sketch of the mousepad for. I'll call it the M-oozepad for now. I have problems with conveying what is in my head onto paper and don't really wanna do any shadings or detailing for it. Cos I know it'll turn out absolutely different when I'm done. Just got too damn bored this noon. Hmm I'll use it as a guide to mold the base
Well, after the mousepad I still got some base for the speakers to mold
You CONSIDERED to mod your mouse? CONSIDERED?
SHAME ON YOU, it ought to be a "of course, the mouse's gonna be modded as hell!"
All hail the new Slime King Acey!!!!
LOL. Better be safe than sorry. Gonna read a couple more mouse mods before slaughtering mine!
If you think the keyboard is weird...
No. This is just the start of detailing
Great shape, me likey!!
What about some stripes as from claws? just in the sides?
The blob.. YIKES IT'S THE BLOB!!
Great mousepad, I really like the shape!!
Thanks mate. Now I realized it looks like a squashed alien crab lol. More details are done on the blob part, tore up the left side spinal cord. Go for a lower profile left side as I need to expand the designs slightly. I'm kinda having a modder's block today so didn't do much on it. But yeah, stripes on the claw will be done, you got me there. Had some problems yesterday. So next update will prob be around Saturday cos I need to go around town tomorrow.
See ya all then.
Photobucket screwed me. In case if you missed it or too lazy to scroll back a couple of pages, here's some flickr pix of the completed case.
Now I'll have to wait for the bandwidth limit to roll over the month for photobucket. Meh.. getting a 2nd account
