I was feeling a little nostalgic the other day and made a glass commodore computers logo. Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 9.6. Hope you all like it, comments are welcome.
thanks,

Very cool and so "old" :). I'd like to see it on white reflective surface with radiosity :).

I'm in the process of trying some different materials and lighting. Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks for all the kind words, it's really appreciated. I don't post many comments on the forums let alone images of my work, but I might need to start sharing more. I'm always in need of constructive criticism. I'm going to try to recreate this image in modo 301 just to see if I can. Is it ok to post images here rendered with other software? I would post the Lightwave and modo images together so viewers could compare them and let me know if they suck or not. First I'll have to get my head around modo's layered surfacing attributes paradigm. Now that I've gotten more used to nodes I want them for everything.

Please! :)

I already have a 1920x1200 render that I'm using for my wallpaper. I'll post it here later today.

I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a 1920x1200 render at 440KBs.

How about an Amiga one next?

I'm not sure what the amiga logo is. Is it the rainbow double check mark or is it the red & white checker ball or something else?

The rainbow checkmarks were the logo embossed on the A1000 main cases. If I remember correctly the checkered sphere was the OS logo. http://www.amiga-hardware.com/ has various high res images of their hardware.

not really the rainbow one, but the last one used on their models.

So nice to see that name again :) If only they could revive it to todays standards in speed and power.

Nice job!

I'd be a convert in a single heat beat if they did that. Too bad the company assets and interests have been scattered to the wind and few of the holders want to work together to revive it. A crying shame really...

@chco2 Nice render! Adding it to my Amiga forever folder...
