Notes:
Childhood, Christmas time, friends, family, joy, happiness ... and, a new toy on my desk. Toy that will define my life, responsible for such a beautiful experiences from my childhood. Kids imaginary world, lost over time, a glimpse of it left in my head, a glimpse of priceless memory.
But, it wouldn't be such a great experience if it wasn't for my friends... do you guys remember how we spent hours playing games, competing and exploring these new digital frontiers?

I must admit I had Atari ST not Amiga ;), but my friend had Amiga and it had way better graphics and sound than my ST. So that's the reason why I decided to model Amiga for this illustration, out of respect. :)

Great piece and it provokes some fond memories of my childhood. The winter wonderland outside the window is also a great touch.

tjerkotten, Ferry P, Silok, and everyone Not-Registered.... thanks :)Yeah it's totally funny how two similar images were made in one month. But, although content is similar, everything else is different. Actually I finished first version of this image few years ago for Immortal 4 Amiga music remix ([url]http://www.amiga-immortal.com[/url]), but couple of months ago I decided to redo it completely and this is the result. Back to the Future was best movie of 80s, I bet 60% of people would decide to put that poster on the wall :)UFO is custom made from wood, toy, just something I was fascinated with :)I posted link to wireframe in this thread.

What is that saucer shaped object in the lower left corner behind the basketball? It's driving me nuts!

Is there some kind of competition going on? This is the second "computer with back to the future poster" scenes in a very short time.

Amiga! My youth!
Amiga rulez! :)
Very fond memories. The 'underground resistance to PC domination' days. :)
These days, I'm a slave to PC, but to fight the tyranny of Microsoft, I'm holding on to Ubuntu :)

OMG! This is even better then the other great work in the gallery!

Now I really need to model my first Vic20...or maybe the Commodore64 with datassette and floppy drive.

Bu tI need a good idea like yours with all the soldiers of Cannon fodder in the room.

Da**! Did you copy my "Back in 1991" picture? :)
Two retro computer pictures at the same time and both renderings contain a 'Back to the future" poster.Funny...

Love your rendering!
I like the mood and great shading and lighting!

Which software did you use? Can we see a wireframe?

Keep up the good work,
Daniel

Really cool job, I love the commodore 64 put in there, and the 5 1/4 floppies.. I am loving the old days stuff put in here. Relics not yet forgotten... and the little army guys, really good job.

This is just a fantastic piece of work. I don't think I have seen a scene that really draws a viewer in so much. There is just so much to look at. Lighting, modeling and textures are sublime.

Hey guys.Thanks so much for comments,lebaje ... I'll render wire soon, probably by the end of week since I'm really busyPsycho Mantis ... hehe, you were right. ;)Kage ... thanks.ClassicGamer-3DT ... I'm glad I made your day. I'll see if I will have some time to make making of, hopefully I will. Clay and wire render are coming soon. BTW I am real retromaniac, I'm reading about old games almost every day. Man I miss my childhood...bobi ... 1200 was also a great machine. By that time I had my PC already, but at the time of Amiga 500 none of the PC machines could catch up with graphics on amiga, it was way ahead of it's time. BTW do you know about Retrogamer magazine, it's great publication, made in UK... I'm subscribed to it for last 1 year and I think I will be subscribed as long as it's published. ;)McFly ... Thanks man.

Man this is so awesome!!! Absolutely brilliant. I am a proud owner of Amiga 1200. But Amiga 500 was the legendary comp... that's for sure. I like that you put C64 in the corner, and all the awesome details in there. Lightning is great. Everything is great! I am really impressed. Congrats on the plug!Please... making off.

OMFG! You guys are right, this is absolutely stunning, the modelling, lighting and texturing is beautifully done, but more than that the memories it conjours of my own childhood. This is an absolute delight. This just looks amazing, you've even got my own all time favourite movie poster in there! I'm insanely jealous I didn't make this myself as it's stunning.Would love to see your wireframes, clays and a making of, you can honestly see the love that's gone into the production of this peice.Definately claim your golden eye award [URL="http://forums.3dtotal.com/awards.php"]here[/URL], you more than deserve it.And thank you, thank you for sharing.Kind RegardsCG.
