how long did it take you if you dont mind me asking?
i use 3dsmax, never used google sketchup, i would hate to think how long it would take to make in max... :/
Imagine in 3Dsmax? All the connects, outlines, bevels and extrudes you would have to do! I would assume that I'd start pulling out my hair eventually. I guess Greeble (downloadable modifier) would be your best bet if you quickly want to do all this.
Really awesome work, I especially liked your presentation in the concept phase as well as the actual development. Can I ask have you had any prior training in terms of how to present your ideas like this, or can you recommend any resources? I'd like to know how where to get more ideas for more appealing presentation if possible. Thanks and keep up the good work!
