Looks fine to me superwoman.
I wouldn`t worry about the viewport image quality.He probably has a better video card installed.
If you do a render it will be fine.
It looks great btw:)

no problem ...yeah the shaded viewport quality dosen`t matter to the final rendered image...there 2 seperate things.

ha ha that`s too strange....I was gonna ask if you knew where the render button was...but I thoiught that might be a little to silly to ask:)
You can hit the render tab on the top tool bar or hit the quick render button top right

thank you...i dont know if im doing too big of project but i hope to make this chair then do animation with it...by makeing it roll across the floor and then i was gonna take someone's model of human and have the human sit in the chair so when he does the chir moves across the floor then i was gonna add a ball so when the human sits in the chair he kinda tosses the ball across the room and the ball bouces acouple times...and once i get this done i will add sound and thats it for first goal...am i on right track?

sounds ambitious for a first project.
When learning animation your 30 days might run out before your done.
For now I`de model the chair and do a camera track around it.That will get you started in modelling and animation.
Good luck to you super:)
