On the side (sans formal instruction) here as a computer science major at Northwest Missouri State University, I have created my first 3D masterpiece based on the new Apple 20 inch FP iMac. The model lacks optical drive and ports, but otherwise is very cosmetically similar to the real thing. The model rendered in all it's glory can be seen here. I made a simple animation using my model and added sound/music in FCP. This animation can be found highly compressed (anyone got some fast free web-space?? ) here. Anyone out there (and I know that there are a few in the animation business) have any comments? I really enjoy doing this and I would love to go into it as a career, but I am broke, and therefore attending a state university .
