    Thats just awsome...
    i don't feel it flat, but you could do some holes, since normally the weaker parts brake. Maybe revealing some circuts or so. The only thing strange i catch is the rust in the monitor frame, does not seem to fit well there. Dunno

    Cheers

    It's looking really good. You could try using an alpha on your crumple bump to vary it a bit. And like you said, it's a little on the flat side. A procedural for some spotted specularity would fix that. Here's a few reference photos I've taken of rust, feel free to use them however you want...

    Looking good, now dirty up the screen and keys... If it's been closed, would the front (second image) not be a little more similar.

    Love it ! I think cresshead has a good idea.
    Like to see that screen dirty/scratched up. Maybe some tape holding it together.

    Looks good, and agreed with all of the above. Something in that state of rusting needs to also be badly peeling/flaking and holey. For the flaking I would take a flat rectangle, divide it up into lots of smaller pieces, use the lasso tool to select a random bumpy group of polys, then delete the rest of the polys. Leave it un-patched though cus you want the messed up edges.

    As for the holes I have no clue how you go about that. Anybody have a good way to make holes?

    David, this is coming up nicely. I like the pieces around the floor. Perhaps you could brakke off a part of the laptop, a corner or so, and show a dark, dirty motherboard piece .

    Are you willing to share the rust surface on presetcentral?
