I am a CS major, with a passion for the arts. I currently work in the tech field, and volunteer as a tutor for any students or non-students that want to learn programming. One of the topics that come up in our discussions is computer generated graphics, a field that I have an interest in.
I know that my personal computer is not able to handle the heavy requirements of rendering software today, and so I am raising funds to build a moderate computer and some starter software to teach both myself and others CG graphics. We have chosen landscaping as our topic of focus, and will expand from there.
In order to give back to all who will hopefully make this possible, we have decided to gather the best artwork from our foray into this field into a digital collection called "The Island" which will serve as a portfolio of our work as we venture into CG.
