OK, this was seriously cool. 1988 and 1989 were GREAT years. Roger Rabbit AND BTTF II. I remember seeing Back to the Future in the cinema, what a rush. It was also the year I saw ¨The last starfighter¨ on TV. Roger Rabbit I missed, but I caught it on VHS whilst studying as an animator/computer artist. And then I got to see Toy Story AND Jurassic Park. It was an amazing time.
Tell me, did you have fun creating the robotic arms in 3D? You must have, it would be most cost effective, but nice job on the textures on the d´Lorean! It´s amazing how far we have come.
