Enjoy!

impressive, though Id love to know how to do this with freeware since I use Blender and Luxrender and to get a good backdrop that is part of render(and as such is taken into account as part of the light hitting the model). trouble is to look good I need an image that is about 20kx15k minimum.

which I am sure i could render considering I have 16gb of ram on this system alone.

Nice one bro! I have to be honest, i'm not sure it's up to your usual standards, but i guess everything can't be a Mona Lisa right ;) I am really liking that planet; I hope you bring some of that awesome-ness to the table when we start the collab

I guess I'm a bit rusty. :D But I sure will bring the awesome-ness. Funny thing, the collabs I've done in the last few years are some of the most favourited deviations I have in my gallery. I'm not really sure what that means. Either I suck at doing art alone or the awesome-ness adds just up whith the awesome-ness of my collab partners. :woohoo:

It's the combination of awesomeness coming from different points in spacetime, it's got something to do with the angle of the trajectory, the approach speed and impact velocity of the impending awesomeness, and the combined density of the polyatomic awesomeness ions. It takes a lot of math to figure it out :lol:

Seriously i love doing collabs, you get a completely different viewpoint coming in, something to shake you out of your preconceived ideas, you end up with a product that you never would have imagined if you were just doing it on your own :)

Not bad, looks like the early stages of planetary development...or maybe it's just taken a hard hit :dead: the asteroids up close still seem a bit polygonal, Vue rocks will do that to ya though ;p

hoevelkamp Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011   Digital Artist
Thanks man. Changed the asteroids, slapped a displacement map on them. I guess this is better. :) Damn Vue rocks. To easily recognizable. ;)

A bit better, I only use displacement when I now I'm going to "bake" the displacement into the object so it calculates and renders faster...but that also generates much more actual polygons and increases the file size :dohtwo:

Yeah, having been using Vue for a few years I can recognize its stuff from a mile away. I see Vue rocks used as asteroids a lot (I have too ;p) I saw a holiday poster in a travel agency window that was promoting tropical getaways and the background was a simple Vue island terrain covered in its default Coconut trees :XD: heck, there's even a weird babies show that I've sometimes seen on daytime TV here and a background is added to the stage digitally and I can tell they used spectral Vue clouds, since even good ones have a "style" about them that I can tell apart from real, photographic ones :sherlock:

I used the displacement of the V-Ray materials in 3ds max. Still pretty fast.

About recognizing things from Vue or other programs. Yeah, I can see that. If you work closeley with a program like Vue you get the feeling for it. It works for other things too. There's this one high res cloud map on the net. I use it and lots of artists do. All it takes is just one glance and you can tell: ah, that cloud formation looks familiar. ;) Still love that map though. :D

Lol, haha - ever since I was 10 I had been able to recognize this popular image of Earth [link] so much that I've kinda named cloud features, like the obvious sideways "V" or "boomerang" near the middle, the "hook" to the left of it and the "wave" to the right :lmao: I always recognize Africa and Antarctica are the dominant feature in regards to land too. I think I once heard that is the most used and published image, ever :shocked:
