I had a few very small goals for this project.
First I wanted to see how convincingly I could make a dusty computer screen, this may sound silly but small tests like this help me to understand how I might apply this to a bigger project.
Second I wanted to work on making a more compelling ‘thumbnail’ for my mesh. Most of my thumbnails are just a nice camera angle with very little effort put into making them compelling, with this I wanted to make the thumbnail look like an old computer ad, I used this for both reference and direct texture work, https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c5/0f/99/c50f99344c8a58ada87fe72ecbec512f.jpg Of course the original aspect ratio didnt transulate so I made some changes to fit a widescreen format.
I also used this for my dust texture base, though I pretty much completly changed it. http://www.reallyjapan.com/blog/tutorials/dusty-textures/
