|This is probably the 3D model I'm currently
proudest of. The actual content is pretty mundane,
but this model of a PS2 Controller I modelled and textured
in Lightwave 6 actually made it into the shipping version
of Escape From Monkey Island PS2 for the controller menu.
The moment of triumph was this conversation with Chris
Miles, lead artist on the project.
Chris: [walks into my office and sees model on
my screen] "Dude, who modeled that for you? I
don't remember assigning that to anybody"
Rich: "Uh, I did."
Chris: [laughs heartily] "... No really,
who modeled it?"
Rich: "DUDE! I did!!"
Chris: [pauses] "... Really? wow
that's pretty good."
Rich: ".... sweeeeet."
it actually used to have the exact logo on the
controller in the middle there, but I had to take it out
since we discovered having it there was against the Sony
TRC requirements at the time. oh well.
