Let me start this build log off with a little back story of myself so everyone that follows this kind of understands who I am.

Personal Bio

I am 25 years old. I am currently serving in the United States Army. I am married and have to kids. Why does this matter well because it means I don't have a lot of spare cash so this build which might turn into some light case modding. I have a lot of ideas floating through my head and I'll post my ideas to get your guys opinion. When it comes to my computer I have been very indecisive so some of my ideas might go back and forth.

Concept
Warning: Scratched Concept! (Click to show)
The concept behind this build is superheros or comic books. Using red and black as the color scheme I orginally was going to do Harley Quinn but decided not to do to the fact that o have a bunch of Harley Quinn merch in my office. I than decided to do a Deadpool while I was looking at Deadpool images my wife suggested Carnage and Venom and I instantly fell in love with the idea. So the majority of this build will be based around Carnage with some accent Venom pieces.

Concept Update #1
I know I said I was going to do a Carnage build and the name of this build log is Carnage but my hopes of legally being able to have a printed Carnage Graphic made are becoming slim to none. I don't want to be sneaky and go about this the wrong way and have a graphic made that if I was to sell the computer I would get in trouble for (yes I know marvel and disney wouldn't find out). My main problem is due to copyright laws no shop will make it for me. I have tried faking a letter to one shop who pretty much called me out due to the fact that they have had a customer get actual permission and my letter was nothing like theirs. So my wife who is an artist and loves to draw is going to come up with a red and black "fictional character" I can use for the build. I am still attempting to get the Carnage graphic made but I want a back up plan just in case it doesn't work out for me.

Concept Update #2
So the graphics with comic book characters idea has officially been completely scratched it just legitimately is going to happen mad.gif so I am coming up them some other theme but in the mean time I will continue on my path of building and modding what I got

I also have been doing a lot of thinking about cool ways to mod this build. I am placing an order for about 3 feet of clear tubing. I wanna see If there is a way to spray paint the tubing to give it a two tone look.

So for my first mod I wanna get a graphics made for the non window side of the case. Of course it is going to be carnage and I am thinking of clear coating over it so it has a rely nice professional finish to it. The problem I am having is no graphics shop will touch the picture I have due to marvels copyrights. So if anyone has an ideas or knows somewhere I could get this done while I wait marvels response allowing me to use the image that would be amazing. This is the picture I wanna use.

Or this one

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Being a dad is the greatest thing ever most of the time sometimes it is overwhelming but fun. They are doing better still a pain to put to bed due to stuffy noses and waking up early for the same reason.

The concept is out there and I don't know if I will be able to do everything. It is going to be a slow mod but I wanna make it out there and something new or not done a lot
