What is VENOM ?
Venom is an all green and black build, with a serious twist.
using PolyMorph plastic, i'll be re-doing the shroud and panels of the case.
Veins will be wrapping themselves around the whole case and internals, these veins will ignite bright green under UV lights.
Think of the upside-down in Stranger Things.
Imagine those roots/veins as green.. Got it? lol
I've got a lot of work ahead of me on this one, i'll also be doing strange things to the tubing, reservoir and fittings.
It's actually very hard to describe, but i got all the design images i need up in my brain lol.

Photo's

Everything for this project in en-route to me.
(Will update as soon as parts start to arrive)

Fresh in today
Delivery from Cablemod!

I had these cables custom made just for this project.
These are the Cablemod Pro cables, with Aluminium combs




I also asked for some sexy Anodised thumb screws from cablemod



And finally, i needed some UV lights for the project.
Cablemod sent out RGB/UV kit + extra 30cm strip




That's all for today folks.
Thanks for looking

Work is well and truly under way.

So, i got my polymorph in yesterday and begun working on the shroud + Roots + added a new alien monster thing (in progress)

Polymorph is ugly to look at in it's raw state, however when painted, it completely changes everything.

PolyMorph Raw after moulding into shape.


After painting with a gun metal grey


I then filled the little caves/holes with UV green paint (dries clear) to give it that extra coolness.



Next up, i begun working on the jaw bones and teeth of the alien monster



I first shaped the teeth, then stuck them onto a curved piece of polymorph as the jaw structure.

i then tipped each tooth with clear UV green paint



After this, i painted the jaw, and re-attached the teeth



And then under UV light for testing



i do want to show you more, but i can't without breaking some kind of rule i'm under :P

Check back tomorrow for more details

Some progress updates.
I've been working on the loop, followed by the polymorph.
Have successfully managed to get the polymorph on the tubing, reservoir and monoblock.
Will smooth down tomorrow, as it's running late here.

First an image of the monoblock, and EK's Cryofuel Acid green coolant!


And... how it looks now






Will update some more tomorrow

So, i've been busy busy, keeping my mind occupied.
Managed to make a huge start on the polymorphing.

So... here's some Weird ass photo's lol.








Here's where the Cablemod Thumb screws were used.

And finally, i'm going back over all the uneven areas, heating them up and re-moulding them all properly.

Looks really weird when it's hot and sticky lol



More to follow
