IF: Spent


Ive always liked derelict,worn out and abandoned things more than bright shiny new ones (well form an aesthetic point of view anyway) They are just more interesting and could no doubt tell some fascinating stories. I especially like it when nature takes some old manmade object and makes it a part of itself.

I've had it in mind for a while to do an image with an old abandoned car so this seemed like the time to do it. I chose the good old Volkswagen beetle. A classic design that's recognised just about everywhere. It was fun to take what was originally a pristine 3D model, and see what I could do with it using various textures.

I see more old and derelict stuff in my images in the future.

It's hard to go wrong with a photo or painting of an abandoned car.
