    Wait did you just update your worklog?? NICE!

    I have exactly the same GPU, except I paid big bucks for it. :\

    It's looking good man. IT's a work of art, and definitely unique!

    awesome looking progress! I would rather see you take your time, get settled in and do an awesome job rather than rush it out the door and have a crappy case.

    As soon as I finish this course and start earning again, a holiday to Cyprus sounds like a lovely idea!

    My limited imagination couldn't see where this was gong all the way through to be honest but those latest shots (not the sunrise) look quality mate, really nice job. Some cool custom lighting will set that bad boy right off

    As for cash holding you back, different circumstances, but I can relate.

    So I am back after a long time (due to my trip to Spain and my new mod) and the first thing I did, was to experiment with various paints and techniques on the main part of the mod.
    After a discussion I had with my friend and fellow modder voigts, we agreed that one single color on this big piece wouldnt look nice, especially the black color. So after a lot of experiments I conclude to that I had to use a kind of texture painting effect, as it looks like a modern "building". I aint going to comment between the pictures but you are going to see the process between the different stages of experimenting. I would love to hear your opinion and as always I will take notes and follow accordingly!

    Also I cut some holes for the USB 3 and.... lets start with a "modded" snack! ;)

    So....

    The technique of this texture painting was using silver with black, 2 different brushes and also I created darker spots fading out to lighter ones as a "fake" lighting effect. It has a glossy surface which I am going to make it ever more glossy by adding acrylic varnish. If you like it though... ;)

    Wow, Wow and Wow. The silver was like great then that black WTF and the blue okay thats cool, but then the brush work to blend, meld the finish into harmony, this is beautiful.
    Close-up if it looks as good as these photos Alex you have done it again :thumb:

    Oh yeah I like it. :)

    Looks like its carved from a stone.

    Welcome back! I love the textured look but part of me like the incredibly shiny chrome look too.
