Software used:

Texturing

I wanted to keep a simple color scheme for Toaster. I was sure that main color would be white, but couldn't decide on a secondary one; the choice was between orange, red and purple. After browsing through Total Tex vol 8 I decided to use purple vinyls.

Almost everything is textured with those two:

I was amazed how easily I could get new shapes from them in photoshop:

To check out the Total Tex alpha maps and bump maps I decided to put some dirt on bottom part of legs:

I also used the bump map in Reflect slot to make the dirt non reflective. I simply inverted it and adjusted brightness a bit with Color Map. And that's the final picture of the Racing Toaster:
