    I don't know if you mean to do this but in some stone spots I can see animals, likes claws, arms, heads.. orrrr maybe it's just me.

    It's very nice. I like the stone and it goes well with the blue! Planning on doing a matching monitor/keyboard?

    Love the stone look, very original for a mod. Is all your cooling coming from the back of the case? One fan for input, the PSU fan for output?

    Looks really nice and I like the technique you developed with bondo to create the stone look.

    I am part cherokee but not enough to matter. I have been to a lot of ceromonies, and a few other things. My tattoo guy is Lakota. He is a sundancer and a pipe carrier. I got close to him and his family. He invited me into his family and I was shown the way. I got the privlage to participate in a lot of things that most outsiders don't. I have always loved the native american way of life. I have a lot of art and pottery as well.

    I have two fans in the front of the case bringing air in. I have two fans in the bottom going out as well as one in the back, and psu fan blowing out. So I have 2 in and 4 out.

    I got the painting lession from The Best Case Scenario tutorial video. I did a variation of what they did but the basics are there. Here is the link.
    The Best Case Scenaro

    I wanted my case to resemble the cave wall drawings that have kinda come to life.

    haha that's great! very nice paint job! well the whole case is fantastic :D


    but: you've got your history wrong mate! the native americans never lived in caves! they imigrated from europe, and took slaves from africa and asia. so maybe you should change the name of the project ;)

    I'll ignore the last comment...

    I'm half Seminole, and it's great to see something promoting our heritage, ESPECIALLY on a modding forum...

    Excellent work, I enjoy the rocky look...

    It is interesting...

    The only comment I have is from a Native American point
    of view... the different artwork from several tribes doesnt
    quite match.. but if you like it thats what matters..

    so. Good Job ;)

    (and about the history lesson.. not even schools in
    America really give proper education on the history
    of the First Nations here... soo.. not to hard to see
    how other countries have a hard time teaching it
    either..)
