When I was a kid I loved Matchbox cars (not so much on the Hot Wheels–ahh, branded at 7). When I gave Clark a box full of my old Matchbox cars he was thrilled. And promised to take good care of them. The above picture shows a randomly discarded car in the carpet.
The carpet texture was really hard to create (I don’t even want to think about a deep pile carpet). I filled in a solid color. Then I did a Texture>Craquelure. Then a Brush Strokes>Crosshatch and then some Gaussian Blur. A little smudging added more texture. There’s also a lens flare on the car.
