    I have an English project due today. We're reading [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scarlet_Letter]The Scarlet Letter[/ame], and the assignment is to create your own scarlet letter using any material you see fit. Being the procrastinator I am, I waited until the last minute (aka three hours ago) to get started. I had no idea what to do, but then suddenly a glorious idea popped into my head.

    Took about two hours in Hammer, not counting compile time.

    I lol'd :) Did you use any lights besides light_environment from the skybox? The shadows are really cool.

    I wish I got to mess around with Hammer when I was reding The Scarlet Letter but I just got to analyze figurative language.

    Nope, just the light_env. The shadows look cool thanks to good ol' -StaticPropPolys and -textureshadows.

    Heh, this reminds me of when I used screenshots of HL2 for a 1984 book report.
