Does this count as Acorn Art? Last year I used Blender to create a very accurate (from the front) model of the Risc PC:

Thanks!

About a month back I started on a diagram to illustate a blog post about Risc PC IDE leads. I've always liked the highly accurate monochromatic diagrams you get in computer manuals. The diagram became more interesting than the blog post, which still isn't finished, and it diverged into a picture of a fantasy Acorn-branded IDE hard disc:

I did that one (above) in about 15 minutes Fourthstone as I was talking for the first 15 minutes. They will be publishing the video.
They have just finished a full day of it. It would be interesting to hear you talk about your side of it one day...maybe in a recorded video...all the challenges you had to solve.

I like the monochromatic simplicity of this one, but I can't help thinking that the wheels are turning the wrong way...

Well... sports car wheels sometimes appear to be going in the reverse direction, I thought it was part of the realistic representation aspect =D> 8-[
