Yes, there are people who do that. I go to Full Sail
Wow, Fullsail? I wanted to go there, I still get their mailers every now and then. How do you like it?
>>Sorry I guess that was a bit off topic.
On topic: I've done a bit of 3d modeling, and I agree it's got to be easier. For someone who really knows what they are doing with modeling (not me), this project wouldn't be too difficult. Once you have the materials and lighting set, these days with quad core processors and GL cards, the rendering wouldn't take very long either (In fact you can render out to a vector image anyway). -Not to mention the fact that it can be re-used with great versatility (Different angles, lighting effects, materials, etc.)
I must imagine that even for the "king of the bezier tool" this took an inordinate amount of time to complete. Just beautiful though.

We shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and it's the content that counts, but his website could also use a makeover. Those are some oldfashioned buttons man...
And i agree with that this is done much easier with a 3d app but i also believe this guy is just into Illustrator, Photoshop, sketching and doodling around, he's so passioned about it, he doesn't have the need to learn a 3d program. Like KFC, he knows what to do with Illustrator.
