after thinking about what I could do for this contest I decided to make a Moby Dick material.
I don't won't to make any generic like the 1000st brick wall material or useless - but cool - highly detailed scenery, because that's not the purpose of mixer.
I also want to embrace the new features of mixer like the scatter modifier to get the most of it.
As a environment artist I thought about making a terrain material, but for this I would need Gaea and this is a thrid party tool - so this is no option. Just making a surface? Nah. I want something with a story!
So long story short. I want to make a whale skin material with a sticky harpoon in the flesh. Thats for the realsitic part - for the stylized, as you see a lot in the moby dick books, a etching version of it. That way I have even between the stylized and realsitic version some logicial bound and a storytelling.
