Hey there!
I was originally planning on doing more work on my baby, but with my recent hardware problems I've become pretty disheartened and lost interest.

It's not all too flashy... not compared to all the crazy stuff I've seen around here.
It's also got its fair share of flaws, like the yellow being messy like crap... Maybe I'll get around to fixing it.

Oh well, here are some pics, feel free to whine as much as you want.

Oh, and almost all of the painting was done with inspiration from BIMPtaculars tutorial... you can find it at http://forums.xbox-s...hlight=corroded
So if you think that the paint looks messy... Well... that's the whole point

Crap, I didn't realize I'd get that red, annoying water stamp in the left corner until after I had uploaded the pictures. Picture-Desk is a small app for batch converting pics (they were all in absurd resolutions originally), Oh whatever tongue.gif

After two blue coats

After the first and only coat of glittery metal stuff

After the first and only coat of black

Me cutting some plastic stuff on the case in preparation of the black coat

IPB Image
This is how it turned out afterwards

IPB Image
Here I realized that external fan = looks shitty, so I had to do something about that.

IPB Image
This is how that turned out, but I thought that looked equally craptacular, so finally I decided to cut the case instead

IPB Image
Done with the HDD



Finally, here are a few pics of how it eventually came out. I am so-so satisfied, but as my xbox is finally up and running again after a treatment with the hot air gun I don't wanna jinx it by opening it up yet again biggrin.gif

Oh well!
Thanks for looking at my pics.
See you around!

Haha, yeah... As I mentioned... I didn't think about the picture-desk crap until I had uploaded all the pictures.

I like the textured look. Very nice. But why did you put all your Xbox games in black DVD cases?

As I stated I've lost interest.
I realized that the black and yellow came out looking like crap the instant I was done.
Now that you people also think so I guess I'll have to redo the bezel and hdd.

Problem is I'm all out of paint.
Maybe I'll get some more blue and black.
Anyway... I'll try to figure something out.

Thanks for the feedback.

I like the texture, makes it look used and abused.

Nice way to bust yourself btw laugh.gif Your just missing a letter with your home address, laying on top of the news papers.
