I enjoyed working on this project a lot, and I'm hoping this is just the beginning of my journey as a 3D Texture Artist/Look Dev Artist.
Thank you all for the feedback and encouragement on my first contest here!

It's been a few days since my last update, but I'm back at it!
For this round, I wanted to show more wear and tear on the Kombi. I wanted it to look like the people that own this van actually get down and dirty trying to save the bees and the planet. These are the people that sometimes spend the night camping next to their van with the kid(s). And on nights when it's too cold outside, they sleep in the van and stare at the stars they've painted on the ceiling. They love bumper stickers, and the funny messages their kids draw on the windows.
As you can see, I'm having a ton of fun with this, haha.
For the next update, I plan to show a little more dirt and grime. I also plan to finally upload my license plate...and maybe add another bumper sticker or two!

For the next update, I'm hoping to add some more mud, but I also plan to work on some bumper stickers. I'm also playing around with the backgrounds a bit more so see what has the best vibe.
I'm really enjoying this contest. It's absolutely keeping me motivated ^_^

Added some more character and textures! As I work on this, it feels more and more like a van for surfers who also want to save the bees. Absolutely something I can get behind.
In my final render, I plan to show more of the interior. The interior will have those glow in the dark stars many of us are used to. I also plan to clean up some of the lines/borders a bit more. Getting them to be completly straight is a task, but worth it.
I'm really looking forward to playing with this some more!
