BNeg, nice job matching the paint to the internal parts. I'll have to remember that idea for my future custom color Case Labs Gemini build.

I used Illustrator CC for the case (using the perspective tool) and Photoshop CC for some the background/foreground elements. I applied a canvas texture to the entire thing to unify the different artwork styles more (which is hard to see after the compression needed to fit it on OCN) and I found some vector artwork of the 4 element symbols which saved me some time. The background is a still frame from Avatar: The Last Airbender, when Aang was frozen in the iceberg for 100 years. I shaped snow mounds from traced sections and piled them with copy and paste in front of the case. I wanted to get it to look like the case was actually frozen inside of the iceberg but that would have taken quite a while to do and most likely would have obscured the case design details in some way. While this all sounds easy but there is a fair amount of proportion, space, and negative space judgement to get it that accurate in perspective. I used a "Lego block" counting system to measure it out to the perspective grid to the relative eyed proportions of the SM8. Then I drew every shape, layered them on top of each other, and it's made of dozens of shapes. No doubt there are easier ways and 3D programs (my render is still a 2D render with a 2D perspective tool) to do this image but I was just playing around on Illustrator CC for fun.

Haaaahaha gave myself a good scare just now. Finally finished my rebuild and booted it up for the first time....no display signal. Tried several different cables, tried plugging into the motherboard directly, etc. for like 30 minutes as I broke into a nervous sweat. Thought maybe I got water on my cards and fried them.

Then suddenly I remembered that my SM8 is reverse ATX so the bottom card is actually the top card :3

I absolutely hate making those rookie mistakes when I've been doing these things for years. I once cleaned out my old D5 pump and put my loop together... and before filling, I noticed that I accidentally left out the magnetic propeller. rolleyes.gif

Hah, he will call and say "hi I have a massive package for you, so you better be home because I'm not making the trip twice!"

lol a delivery guy going "I have a massive package for you" sounds like the intro to a cliche adult film.
