turning this into my WIP thread. will edit this post to make updates.

alright I did his tutorial, but I still can't figure out how to adapt it to a sphere. I'm trying to do the intel i7 logo thing but I'm not gonna enter because you have to be 16 for one thing, and considering the number of groteys and bolts out there, the odds aren't exactly high for me. also, do you know if I'm allowed to use volumetric fog on it? because technically I'm using the right colors, but by using fog I can make the puke-green look less puke like. (trying to follow all rules for fun.
