Hello, my name is Brano Florian and I would like to show you the approach I have used to create my picture Wallmart 2161. It was partially a commercial project based on a design, but the rest was in my hands. So let's see the process.

Modeling & Mapping of the Truck

For the modeling I used standard poly modeling in 3ds Max 2009 with the Polyboost plugin (Fig.01a - b).

From the beginning I was careful to remember to use automatic mapping on splines where there was no need to deal with UVs later. On the other parts I used a simple UVW map modifier and tiled texture setup with UV Gizmo. The cabin was mapped in UV Layout, which I can recommend for this sort of "half-organic" object. The back side of the model was made quite detailed in case I wanted to animate the scene in the future (Fig.02).

Texturing

For the model I made four main textures in Photoshop (Fig.03a - b). I did this mainly by combining photos. Rust was added with random brush strokes or taken from other photos. The textures were converted to JPEGs and then a Sharpen filter was applied.

The gun was mapped using automatic unwrap in 3ds Max, then exported into Bodypaint for color and to add the scratched edges.

That's funny. Walmart has billions & billions of dollars. If they end up like this, I cannot imagine what the rest of us will end up as. Insects? Maggots?

Ha! Before seeing Fig. 02 I thought that this Wal-Mart was mobile. Still looks great though!
