Golgen by hoevelkamp Golgen by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

Long time since my last vertical picture. I was working on this gas giant, put some rings around it and flipped it around, just to see how it was looking. And this was the best looking angle. So I stayed with it and gave it some subtle background and some moons.

This new (for me) technique to create gas giants is working pretty well. This one is definitely the best gas giant I ever created.

Enjoy the view.

Come on, you can give us a hint so we know what direction to go in?

I assume you're talking about the technique? OK. A hint.

Gas Giants have layered, stretched clouds. :D

Thanks synax, actually it's the new improved texture. I put some more work into it to get rid of the repetitive patterns in it. It worked. :D

That planet texture is just to die for man, but iunno, someone about the planet itself still bugs me.... :(

Thanks a lot. About the planet? Not the little moon? Speak your mind my friend. :nod:

Iunno, it just feels slightly flat/fake, I can't put my finger on it.

It's a perfect sphere in 3ds max, it doesn't get more round than that. So it's the texture. But I kinda like it, so I leave it as it is. But thanks for the critique. Again something I have to be more careful about in the future. :)

I think it may be the lack of an atmosphere on the upper edges, or i'm just high
