How to texture and make materials inside Blender?

Hey guys I just made a scene here and I don’t have any textures or materials on it as you can see. The thing is, I really really don’t want to UV unwrap everything to texture it but if I absolutely have to then I guess I will. I see that in Blender you can homebrew textures and materials can anyone point me to any resources that deal with making materials and textures within blender and not uv unwrapping? Thanks

Also general critiques are welcomed too.

Box Mapping maybe?

And i think your scene really needs some balloons + a sidewalk :slight_smile:
