Hi there! Today I wanted to share some of the latest texturing achievements with you to tease your eyes a little bit and make you more warp thirsty again. Starring: Rust effects.

The most challenging thing about making convincingly looking rust effects is that in real life rust has a lot of details that may seem hard to recreate. When you try to achieve satysfying results, you want to pay attention to the detail in the first place. I tried too many times to go about this in one shot and failed unconditionally every time I did so. Despite all these failures I was determined more than ever and after a few sleepless nights and far too many cups of coffee proper results started to show up.

Have a look:


The top of the image is ocuppied by a plain metal texture I made in the meantime. Below there are 8 different tiles with various rust effects. They feature rust stains in all shapes and sizes: Small ones and big ones, oval and longitudal, deep and shallow, bright and faded. I didn't even think of getting that far at the point I first tried to solve this rusty mystery!

Tiles look nice (don't they?) but rusty compilation is even better. I suggest you click and check out the full-sized image for even better experience:

Rust effects compilation


Rust was my Achilles heel since I can remember so you can imagine the difference now that I feel like I know everything about this particular material :p Seriously though during this process I came up with so many new ideas and approaches for creating materials that I'm actually scared to test them all out. NO, I actually can't wait to try them! This may be interesting. 

Now I'm going to play a little more with rust effects and get all the tools for creating them sorted. After that I'm moving to the next stop which are paint effects on different materials. Hope it'll be just as big a surprise as with these! See you there!

Of course you're welcome to leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below. We love reading them! ;)
