Hello again Cam, sketchup is free. I tried using it a couple of years back and hot a little flustered, and I'm not a novice. As mentioned earlier, I am an artist also and was in graphic arts for over 30 years. I also taught college level Mac based desktop publishing and digital illustration. So, try it, it's free. Maybe it's a better program these days? I was considering it myself actually. Good luck and keep me posted.
Thanks Ken!! that's amazing you were a graphic design artist. I think I'm going to follow you on ET now! I'll keep you posted (may not have a huge amount of time starting monday, as I start my online courses on monday, I'm in 10th grade now. I will try my best, for sure!)
