I'm no artist, but here's an idea I had for a map prop

It's supposed to be some sort of futuristic computer with data cables coming from the bottom and a blue tint coming from the screen and red button in the bottom left, mounted onto a sliding rail seen bottom left. I'm not sure if it's useful but I may have a go at making a model of it if it turns out to be.

That's actually a pretty detailed drawing, more so than the thread title indicates. Could you go further with detailing it? Maybe draw how it would look in an area?

You drew a great sketch.

I used to draw these sorta things way back but now I have to pay attention in class or I won't graduate.

Try orthogonal or some 3D position to give more depth and detail.

I'm no artist either. I do them on microstation95. It can only draw elipses, circles and lines.
:P

Was wondering what sort of triangle budget I should have for the prop?
I am at 451tris so far, I think around 1000-1200tris I can manage once the cables and other stuff is added
