Right, this animation thing can't be too hard.

I probably have a lot to learn having never done anything like this at all... Anyway, I have lots of ideas and will post them as soon I have some time to sketch.

Just to start: Below is an 'exagerated' environment (Saudi Arabia?) that will need to be destroyed at some point. It was made this morning using the free software Google Sketchup... it's a very basic program but does the job.

Hopefully I've done this right?

Looking good Mike! Wow you are a fast modeler. Looking forward to more of your ideas :)

Nice structure, what's your overall concept / idea?

Thanks guys. Sketchup is very fast if you're wanting to model blocky geometry (but not curves). It's defintely a program that's looked down on but I love its simplicity, although admittedly not its rendering!

The concept is coming along and I'll post it up soonish - with sketches, that sort of thing. All I know for certain is that it is set in Mexico and the evil chap is English.
