Dont Come Any Closer by hoevelkamp Dont Come Any Closer by hoevelkamp
Well... it's almost Summer. :D Something simple and hot.

3ds Max and Photoshop

Edit: Due to some valid and good critiques I decided to edit this picture. The rocks in the belt seemed to be roughly the same size in the fore- and background. That I changed. To do so I had to recreate the asteroid belt. In the first version there were roundabout 8500 rocks, in this new and improved version are roundabout 14500 rocks. I was worried if my machine could handle the rendering but it came out just fine. So here it is. New and improved. :D

I love the name, it gives the star attitude. :D

"Stay back! I have an asteroid belt!!"

Amazing ^_^
How did you made this rocks? Every rock looks different and I don't think that you modeled every rock.

Thanks. :) The rocks? Pretty simple. I created some rocks (about 50 or so) in Vue (that's fairly easy, just push a button and each time a different rock appears; it's a random thing) and imported them to Max. There I arranged them via copy and paste, rotating and resizing. If you look very closely you will find some repetitions, they are just not that obvious. The rocks were then textured in Max with one texture for all of them. Result is about 14500 rocks, made from 50 to begin with. :D

Nice one. I really like that thing. I hope after some time these asteroids will made planets?

Thanks a lot. :) Yeah, that is one possible explanation for this sun and asteroid belt. Proto system, before the actual planets are formed. :nod:

Awesome! I'd say that the star is a small and cool K3V class with a close asteroid belt. Man I really like this one because it reminds me of many of my best Celestia addons.

Other than that, great star. A vacation on a habitable planet orbiting that star would be great... and hot!

Thanks a lot! :) I'm glad you like it. Interesting how many different explanations I get for the possibility of this star and its belt. And be careful, a vacation in the vicinity of this star guarantees a nasty sunburn. :D

Jajaja, how's Germany this time of the year? And for how many months do the summers last?

It's still spring. The temperatures are rising and the days are getting longer. We have cool temperatures right now, for this time of year. Around 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. The Summer lasts about 4 to 6 months I'd say. That is in relation to temperatures. We have had one of the hottest Aprils since 120 years ago. In relation to that the May starts poor. ;)

Well, here we have 2 seasons. Summer and Colder Summer!

Our summer lasts for 12 months!

The temperature is almost allways at 27 grees C, or 81F.

Danke! Und ich lass Dir immer gern ein bisschen Freiraum für Kritik. :D Der Ring sollte eigentlich größer sein (Umfang), aber dann wären es ein wenig viele Brocken geworden. So sind es ungefähr 8500 einzelne Asteroiden im Gürtel. :)

Thanks a lot! :) How long? I'd have to guess. I didn't make it in one session, more on and off for a few days. Including render time I think maybe 6 to 8 hours.

Red giant with some planetary fragments around it? Hell, that could even be us... Excellent job on the sun, I love how you didn't just make it a solid color on the inside and that is has actual texture to it. It even feels hot.

hahaha :) Really nice work mate. And I think that the idea for the destroyed planet with still living core by *priteeboy is nice :P

What about the 3ds project you showed me once. Any progress?

hoevelkamp Featured By Owner May 2, 2009   Digital Artist
Ah, my 3ds project. It's going slowly. Still have to figure out some things. Added some more stuff and decided the static background sucks. Working on a skybox for the whole setting now. And I just got my new Wacom Intuos4 M. That's pretty distracting. :D You know, a boy and his new and shiny toy. :D

Pretty cool, and a bit surreal too - that's either a very small star or those are some colossal rocks ;) or better yet - it could be a destroyed planet with a glowing core still remaining in the middle :sun: Anyway, it certainly has a true 3D feel, like you could put on some 3D glasses and the rocks in front will even feel much more closer than the back ones :eyepopping:

Hey there! Thanks a lot. It just felt right and so I left the physics out in this one. :) Maybe it could be a proto system. Not yet done and all those rocks are colliding and merging and breaking again and again, until finally the planets form. (Very far fetched ;)) Glad the 3d felling is there. :D
