    Most of the mods, even if some of them are complicated and beautiful, they dont use abstract art as painting or something extreme, instead they are using 1-2 plain colors. I, as an eccentric person (lol) I like to try new things and create something different. Remember that Salvador Dali wasnt accepted by everyone but his art got really famous afterward. In this mod there are many and different painting techniques which some of the are really difficult. I wonder if anyone noticed that they are 7 different techniques! I will probably update with more details on that! Thanks buddy your comments and presence are always appreciated!! :)

    Thank you my friend, I really appreciate your support! :thumb:

    Thanks buddy your comment made me smile!!!! :D

    Glad you liked it my friend!!!!! Thanks!! :D :thumb:

    some amazing work there. i really like the forms you've chosen. it's great to see builds that aren't a box. i've really been into these architectural styles of builds lately. some interesting painting techniques you are doing. another great example of functional art.

    It is different it is ART. A real piece of art.:rock: I am loving it. The raw paint job with the smooth and soft curved lines. Its a case with expression
    Wonder what it would fetch at Sotheby's? :D

    Look at your pc.
    Now look mine.
    Your pc will never look like mine.
    Now look in my pc.
    You see 2 graphic cards with the waterblocks you love.
    Look again.
    The graphic cards are now diamonds!

    Time for a new update as we are near the end... hopefully!
    This is going to be a very random update as I work on the final touches, cable management, water cooling, extra details etc.
    First some of the work I did on the main compartment of this mod.
    Leds cut in size and installed. I forgot to take some pictures with the cable management finished but I will post them in another update.
    The cable management will be done in an artistic way and also as neat as possible. Due to the mods theme the cables must be arty too!

    [​IMG]

    Mobo i/o shield installed

    [​IMG]

    Double sided tape and the logo illumination acrylic is in place!

    [​IMG]

    The DVD eject switch, and how it looks on the case. I also installed the DVD but more on this in an upcoming update.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In some of the screw nuts I used MDPC caps. The rest left uncovered for a different contrast in the overall design.

    [​IMG]

    The installation of the fan controller and its cover. More pictures outside with some natural sunlight in a while!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    1mm clear acrylic for the small window on the main side panel.

    [​IMG]

    As I promised here are some super macro and macro shots of my painting techniques.

    [​IMG]

    The "golf ball" texture technique. Its done by using a piece of newspaper. To finish the texture you need to use this technique 3 times in a row before the paint dries completely thats why I used paints that took longer to dry. Its applied on the side panels edges.

    [​IMG]

    A technique which is applied only on heavily textured surfaces.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    See the details on this technique.

    [​IMG]

    Random shots of more painting techniques and also of the second compartment!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    See the 2 different layers of white.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is a technique where you have to scratch the paint underneath and paint over. To do that you have to apply at least 5 heavy layers of paint before so the scratches will be deeper so therefore the technique will be applied better!

    [​IMG]

    More leds to be cut, soldered and sleeved!
    I decided to use less leds on this compartment cause firstly I needed two more to cover my needs but also I am going to play with the lighting effects and overall "night" looks of it!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Windows installed!

    [​IMG]

    A shot from the led tests I did.

    [​IMG]

    Here are the shots from the final build steps of the second compartment of this mod.
    Custom cable with heatshrink arty design, re-did some of the cables, installed the radiators, tubing, pump and done!!

    Thanks for reading my update guys (and not only stare on the last picture! :p )
    Till next time, peace!

    INCREDIBLE! What more can I say Alex? It's an absolute pleasure to read through this log and look at your wonderful artwork. It's my birthday on Friday, so I'm feeling nice, I'm linking this mod to MDPC because that's thew only way to describe this piece.

    Well done.
