A nostalgic image...

It was the summer of 1990 and I was 10 years old.
My first computer was an AMIGA 500 and I started to work with DELUXE PAINT, a 2D program...
The image on the screen is the original picture I made... absolutely my first work!
(The file was recovered from an old floppy with an Amiga Emulator, WinUae).
I made a scene of the Transformers's toon, inspired to the first episode of the animated serie, "Escape from planet Cybertron". So started my passion for Computer Graphics.

I applied to the 3D only in the fall of 1998, with Bryce 2, and I started to use 3D Studio Max in December 1999-January 2000...

In the summer of the 1990 in Italy was played the World Soccer Championship...
So I put in the scene also the Official Mascotte of the event... that strange figure with the head like a soccer ball and the body like tetris-pieces on the left...
Every boy in Italy that year bought one of theese mascottes, I suppose...

On YouTube I've found the TV promo of Italia'90 Soccer Championship. A good 3D graphic example... for that time!

Great render! Brought back a lot of memories. Started with a VIC-20 back in -81 myself and went through most of the Commodore range, before moving to PC in -93.

Ah, the Amiga Super-computer (as NewTek says in the LightWave manual).
My 2000 is still working.
I bought a Video Toaster because it was the first 24-bit graphics program available and then discovered it had to have an Amiga 2000 to go along with it!
Now they talk about putting video on line and Mac/PC emulation and I just laugh.
Where were they 15 years ago?
