24, am I too young? Also here's an image of one of my first 3D projects, I designed a Semi Truck and a Fatboy Harley Motorcycle. There were some animations I did with it as well, but I don't have them uploaded anywhere. All texturing, lighting, modeling done by myself from scratch...
Program used was Maxon's Cinema 4D.

Ubisoft files Killing Day, Driver trademarks
French publisher puts in USPTO claims for long-dormant first-person shooter, racing franchises.
Ubisoft also filed applications for the names "Driver: The Recruit" and "C.O.P.: The Recruit." In 2006, Ubisoft picked up the Driver license from Atari, which unloaded the IP and its developer Reflections Interactive for â‚¬19 million (then $24 million, now $26 million). As part of a BBC interview in June 2008, Ubisoft revealed that Reflections was at work on a new installment in the Driver franchise, the first since 2006's lackluster Driver: Parallel Lines.
As with other applications of this ilk, all three filings carried descriptors for "game software and electronic game programs, namely, software games recorded on CD-ROM and digital video discs for computers." Ubisoft had not responded to requests for comment on the filings as of press time.
Conveniently enough, the filings come as the industry gears up for the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, which runs June 1-4 in Los Angeles. Ubisoft is expected to deliver its E3 press conference at 5 p.m. on Monday, June 1, and GameSpot will be on hand to report on news from the event as it happens.
