A Case Study in Fanatacism

There are fanatics, and then there are auteurs. The computer gamer known only as Crimson Sky falls somewhere inbetween the two definitions.
For over a year, Crimson Sky has been creating a one-of-a-kind tribute to his favorite video game Doom3, in the form of a meticulously detailed and technologically astute computer case.

Among other things, Crimson applies motorized doors, airbrushed metal and bondo, and real steamjets to make the case look like it came directly from the game.

Yet after all this work, what we have is an incredible piece made for a rather boring FPS, which incidentally was made into an even crappier sci-fi blockbuster. 

Have a look at his lengthy blog on the project – which goes into fascinating detail.

    Now why can’t someone with the talent and creativity like this put their brains to more constructive and helpful uses?

    i think the guy is an artist, and just uses projects like these to keep up on his chops.

    i’d imagine he gets work in films, with his level of expertise.
