Apple Keyboard

This was a personal project where I wanted to successfully model an apple keyboard. I wanted to be able to get pretty close to the model with the camera and spent some time getting some of the micro details in there. This was also featured as a workshop on CG Cookie.

This was a bit over kill for the purpose, but was great to get this close to the model.

Using a gradient ramp I was able to create some dirty rubber bumpers.

All in all it came together pretty well.
