    You want a pro, but don't want to pay much? :confused:

    What you want to do is to find local (to you) companies that specialize in graphics. Alternatively you can do a vinyl wrap. Find a local place that does cars, and get a quote. If you're too lazy to leave your home, this site that I found right now has a form that you can fill out (click on the big orange button down the page) and they'll give you a quote.

    Well in my defense the first design is pretty simple and i doubt it would take anyone that long or alot of effort to get it done if they were pro. The Other Designs i could understand your reasoning cause they are pretty complicated. When i said break the bank i pretty much meant nothing over $60 for the first one and $100 for the last two.

    Im kinda Meh to vinyl wraps, i want it painted on, plus they seem to specialize in cars and i bet for other things they will make you over pay.

    The first 2 design requires a vinyl stencil to be made and requires either a double stencil with an offset or a very controlled airbrush to create the red shadow. The second requires airbrush for the entire artwork, no stencil will be useful here.

    None of the methods that I mention will be cheap and I can tell you that how good you are as an artist, you cannot rush art. The higher amount of detail = more time spent painting = pay more. Its easier to find those specializing in automotive artwork to do it than someone who truly specializes in case artwork.

    The fact that you want the best but not willing to pay for the best is self contradicting. You will never find anyone who's willing to do it for $60-100. Its easily double that for the second artwork. You could ask here for a price quote from a case mod specialist. I can assure you, cheap, fast and good service don't go hand in hand with these services.

    Aww crap......ohh well, i guess i have an Uncle whos best friend does that Car design stuff. I really didnt wanna have to use em but ohh well, he pretty good with airbrushing and a great artist. If i cant get around the Premium prices than i'll definately use him lol

    but i will get a quote from that guy you referred me to though, just to see the ballpark cost. If i cant get the first design done for $100 then its a definite no go for me......
    Edit: Damn that guy you referred me to looks like hes very experience with case designs and art

    For the amount of money you're willing to pay, printed vinyl wrap is as good as it gets. In fact, vinyl wrap is easily removable should you one day find the graphics getting dated. It is far more scratch resistant compared to most paint jobs too.

    Goto a beach. The ones where there are piers with shopping stalls.

    Find air brusher at beach stall.
    Ask Air brusher how much he charges per work.

    Have air brusher paint Snake on your case.


    in that case im pretty sure that was done by a company i know, and it wont be cheap.
    infact that company probaby did the CM cases we recall back when they had special air brushed version for almost 1000 dollars.

    You might be able to find a local automotive painter to do it for you. They are used to working on huge chunks of metal so a little PC case should be cakewalk for painters that know how to use air brush too.

    Won't be cheap. Printed vinyl wrap is probably your best way to go.

    I like the beach airbrusher idea. They actually do pretty good work, but I don't know if they would "contract" themselves out.
