Stuff like that MAYBE looks cool, but usually the artist has got no idea what he is doing. Using stuff because it looks nice is a lot less effective than making something because it does exactly what you want.

You dont need fancy math to make stuff look good yourself either. In fact that maths for constructing specific stuff is usually the most trivial sort, except in the case of DM.

I would iterate a list of tips for constructing superscopes.... but I have done it before enough times...

The 'fancy' stuff like rotation matrices and raytracing, are only half understood by most who use them. So don't feel down if you don't understand them properly or at all, neither do Tuggummi or PAK-9 or most of the rest... and they still make a ton of awesome presets.
