Here is an illustration I created for a Flash site I'm still working on.
Click me... see all the details!
I created the image in trueSpace 4, which is a 3D modelling/rendering application. I sure wish I got to do more 3D work, because it's so much fun and so time consuming. This piece uses very simple shapes and surfaces to give it a cartoony SimCity look. The whole scene only sports about fifty thousand polygons. That sounds like a lot but it's not. By moving the camera very, very far away and using a virtual telephoto lens I was able to almost eliminate perspective to give it that isometric simulation feel. Here's a peek at the wireframe.
