You shuld add some oil stains here an there, oil stains mixed with some dust, and you can add some shadow contrast where the street meet the pavement…

Thanks for the tiles recipie…

I am stuck! Not sure what else to add to the street. It looks too clean to me, but I don't want to over do the debris. I am currently looking at a lot of pictures for reference, see if that helps

Thank you Bostjan. For the tiles I looked for a pattern of tiles I liked on internet. There are many sites for architects that display them. Reduce the image to the size you need, and print it on photographic paper. Cut the image to the size you need, or cut the individual tiles. Really very simple.

A couple more layers of debris. I still think it needs a couple more.

Thank you nick. And don't worry, I really appreciate your comment. 4 eyes (or more experienced eyes) are better than 2. I will definitely add more layers of debris. I just want to be careful that the scene makes sence. The front facade of the building is almost intact, so it wouldn't make sense to have lots of debris there. But you can see that at the edge of the dio part of the building is collapsing, so how much debris from there could fall toward the corner, and in what pattern. But definitely it needs more debris. I will be posting as I advance, so please do comment. Cheers!

Hi Marcos - this is looking great! The real sunlight really lets the detail and colors show! The debris is looking good - you’re accomplishing random very effectively - easier said than done. I’m wondering - would you consider another couple of layers of debris? First something fine - almost just sand or finely crushed rock? Then...a wash of dust over it all? Sorry - I don’t mean to be a pain in the neck!! This looks great - just curious how far you want to go? I’ve tackled a similar concept before and it seems you can keep adding forever! All depends on what your end goal is. Again, I really don’t mean to butt in too much! I know your projects always turn out really well!

Looking forward to your next update -

Cheers
Nick

Thank you Tim. I still have a lot of work ahead. Much more debris, and haven't even started with pigments. I still have to define how big the base will be, etc. Just finnished an A/C unit. I have been away from home so not much time to work on the dio. And I guess I will have to make a key for that door!

Very nice flooring & details –I’d suggest the breaks in the floor are a bit too neat though, some of the rubble piled up around them might look better resting in the metal rebar that’s holding it together – & heaps more dust/fragments over everything. Excellent work, I’m sure it hasn’t been easy...& I’m still looking for the key to that door
