Drum Roll, Please . . . .

So the long awaited moment finally arrived, the moment when I finished my realistic object assignment. I feel very accomplished having finally finished it. After almost thirty hours (yes, that's right, 30 hours, the big three and then a fat zero put together in to one number, 30), it's finally done.
So all I had left to do last night was the numbers around the bezel and the screen. I started at 8:00 PM and figured that I do 4 hours and stay up until 2:00 AM if I had to but I didn't close the file until 5:00 AM. So I basically pulled an all-nighter. I would have just gone to bed at 2 but it was due the next morning so I had no choice.
And finally, the moment you all have been waiting for, the unveiling . . . .

I know it may not look like much but here is the original I traced from, line by painful line.

And then finally, I have the wireframe image also. If any of you have worked in Illustrator, you will appreciate this next image.

Although it was hard to do, I did it right, and that feels good. I don't know what else to say. My teacher and my class loved it, so that's a good sign for my grade. So I pretty much have a guaranteed A in that class, so that feels good.
I guess I had good karma in that class today, a cute girl totally talked to me about how much she liked my project. Maybe I will ask her out. I will keep all four of my faithful readers updated. : )
Don't forget to comment! Tell me what you think of it!

P.S. The images don't seem to be playing nice so you can go here (Wireframe, Vector, Original) to see them full sized or here to download them (includes Illustrator file with all three pictures).


  1. That is very cool. I looked at it in Illustrator and I must say I'm impressed, it obviously took a ton of work.

    Good job!

  2. Wow! I wish my late nights were that productive. It looks exactly like the photograph! I see a career for someone at Pixar :)

  3. Thanks everybody! It was tough but it was worth it. :)

  4. Oooooooo, aaaaaaaaah. Seriously. Wow!!!!! I second LaShel's Pixar comment.
