Thanks, that keeps me under pressure ... lunch time gonna be epic today
As mentioned before guys im working on a video of the case designs to drum up interest for stage 3.
If you feel like having some fun you may make a short video of your case for me to use in the video as i have some space in the 4 min time line.
if you would like to do this PM me and do not post videos in this thread.
please note this is NOT mandatory and will be used for promotion of the general contest and will not affect voting in any way.
Confusis you have mail.
@Confusis : Do not withdraw please.
Here is my lunch work :
- Modeling of the phobya logo
- Added vandal power switch, 2 USB and 2 x 6.3mm jack for mic and headphones (comes with 2 3.5mm adapters)
you could have just asked. I can email you the logo.
that's true ... ... that was a good exercise with curved lines in SU.
What do you think of the plain version of the case (w/o window) ?
You know, the plain thing opens a new world of possibilities, but not everyone can or want to cut his own window.
I prefer this window. I love big windows.
I understand and it reminds me of an idea I was considering. The front bay panel could be composed of 2 layer, the inner one being acrylic and the outter one being a full aluminium cover. Thus you can either leave it plain or remove the outter layer to have a full size window. Even further, you can cut the alumium shell to use it as a mask above the acrylic window, having a window that match your tastes.
I think I'elle go that way
mmm sounds interesting Guille! Whatever floats your boat!
@GuilleAcoustic- I say no window (sorry Razor). I just think, if someone wants a window they can easily mod it, plus I think it looks a lot cleaner without it.
Anyone with some photoshop skillz willing to help me out with a watermark?
(Im a photoshop dummy )
err should it be done tonight? haha I gotta do 2 case designs, and 2 essays, and homework LOL.
Haha no rush. I don't need it for the Phobya contest. I just want to start watermarking my images in the future.
aaah ok. no prob I'll see what I can do.
Try this it worked for me

Window addict ? Very nice pictures and design Razer
Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice can't wait to see all the other design
I forgot the fill port lets hope i make it to stage3
Addict? Why? LOL but thanks!
Don't worry, I bet you will make it. The competition is obviously roboduck.
I don't know about that! Everyone's designs have all progressed to a point where I think it will be very close. No one is really standing out (at least to me) as a clear leader. I like em all!
Edit: Everyone is bringing something different to the table too, there really aren't any two cases that are similar in design. Everyone has their own unique and creative idea.
