I have an idea for you... Make a desert planet part of an asteroid belt surrounded by sandy asteroids. And name it.. "Dustia".

Is there a way to make planets in vue? Like how you make yours?
hoevelkamp Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012   Digital Artist
Yeah, sure there is. Works mostly like in 3ds max. The only thing I don't know how to do is the atmosphere, but you can add that in Photoshop postwork. You have all the same maps and create a material from them. Like in 3ds max you need a sphere for land/ocean and another sphere for clouds and there is a way to add the atmosphere on a third sphere I think but you really should ask one of the many Vue users here on DA.
sexyhello Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Okay :), thank you very much though... I'm sure I can figure out the atmosphere on my own :) if not then I definitely will :)

np :D Any chance on getting that globe in size 300? Than it would fit perfectly with my desktop settings. ;)
Crosseout Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I can't just scale it due to the way rainmeter rotates images; you can resize every image to 300px and edit the skins ImageW and ImageH to 300. It would double the size in the rmskin to include an extra sizeversion though, thats why I don't:)
hoevelkamp Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012   Digital Artist
All right, cool. So simply resizing the pics and editiing these two values will do the trick? I thought it would be more complicated than that. :D Thanks a lot for the info.

I got a copy of Studio Max because of my architecture course. I left it and now use it for having fun with and was looking to do some epic imagery and came across your tutorials.

Decided to look at your work and ... wow. You're freakin' amazing! I don't know what you're paid, but I can bet it's not enough.
