My vision of an idyllic future is probably different from pretty much everyone else's... I envision a life with drastically less technology. Ironic for a budding 3D artist, I know. My boy scout side is strong, I guess. I'm modelling in blender and painting textures in paint.net.
More specifically I envision technology being more restrained, I guess. Not in a dictatorial way, in a people do more stuff outdoors way. There's still medical technology, for example, like Drakahn Finlay's scanning bed. But personal cell phones and PC's and TVs are far less common.
Next I'll make the texture for the building (a medical wing) and the man. I might also give him crutches... hmm... Any suggestions? Yes crutches, no crutches? I also will probably make a path from the building through the trees.
