    Hello friends, I hereby present to you my newest project.

    In the next edition of Campus Party Brazil, I'll join be participate of Casemodders team to modify their models and display during the event. I will modify of a cabinet model COSMOS II.

    The theme

    The theme chosen for the modification of the cabinet is Akira. This anime is based on a very successful manga and is one of the most popular of all time. Created by Katsuhiro Otomo, is considered a classic cyberpunk style. It gave rise to an animated feature film of the same name, released in 1988.

    Although it has been nearly 25 years of the release of the anime, the theme is still alive in the minds of many, both are frequent discussions in the possibility of becoming one day a Live Action movie by Hollywood.
    Next year thinking about the birthday celebrations, I intend to explore the subject in order to honor that this was a cartoon that marked my childhood and for many people around the world.

    Objectives

    My goal is to apply techniques of painting and airbrushing, along the same lines of previous work carried out by me. Small changes in the structure of the cabinet, acrylic installation, lighting compatible and parts.

    The colors used are based on the chosen theme, as well as accessories possess details that complement the package.

    -------

    Expect news soon, I hope you follow, comment and give suggestions, I will enjoy and appreciate if possible! :blush:

    It's difficult to choose art, mainly because I will not want to undo that cabinet (a second modification as with the DMC is out of the question), then after it's done I do not want to regret.
    There are two images that are dominating my thoughts, the difficult is the fact of the side having spaces for ventilation...

    [​IMG]

    This is the idea for acrylic:

    [​IMG]

    Acrylic being cut and bent:

    [​IMG]

    In place:

    [​IMG]

    I had forgotten my camera at home, so I decided to do this with borrowed camera:

    [​IMG]

    Then I went in the house of Miguel...

    [​IMG]

    And we see cutting ideas ...

    [​IMG]

    And we began to loosen the plastic frills:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Motherf *% #´¨ ... Sh"* double-sided tape ...

    [​IMG]

    Making the lines ...

    [​IMG]

    scratching:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And finalized: It now remains the plastic inside

    [​IMG]

    Screens will be replaced by another before painting

    [​IMG]
