The side panel of the case has lots of horrible looking wires and junk attached to it using any adhesive I could get my hands on.

I thought a darker, blurrier angle would do the case justice but apparently it just makes things worse.

You can't tell from this picture, but I've estapol-ed the whole case. Apparently that's supposed to protect it somehow. 

Also, from this shot you can see how I've tried to 'flow' the tenticles from the front to the sides.

Painting of completed! It some ways, I completely screwed up the stencil work, just because I couldn't be bothered going to the store and buying masking paper, but the more you look at it the less crap it looks. Really!

I changed around the art idea for the case. The sketch I did earlier was a little reminiscent of flames, and that's getting a little old now, so I changed it to...tentacles! It looks cool, trust me. I doubt you'll be able to find tentacles on any other case. So the shot above is of both panels, painted. One of them has the stencil stuck on. I can't paint right away though because the weather is horrible at the moment, and the paint won't dry properly.
I changed around the...

After the stabbing process...oh, I mean cutting. Sorry, I get those two mixed up all the time.

Okay, well some people said no intake (no holes at all on the front) and others said it looked better. The idea of a case with nothing on the front is appealing, but it wasn't the plan for this mod.
