I was a bit unsure of this project due to having zero experience with earthen tones and rust but it happened, and this is the resulting wip. No vehicle modes as of yet....let me know what you guys think!

    Okay, if this is your first time with rust effects, I can't wait to see your second time.
    Very well done!
    Care to share the techniques/process?
