Cosmic Daylight Close Up

Full View Highly Recommended.

i havent submitted anything for over a month, so i decided to submit somewhat of a preview of my current work. As you can see, im learning how to make rings for planets, since not a lot of people are doing space scenes with ringed planets; plus i wanted to play around and learn something new.
an easy way wouldve been so simply make rings in photoshop, then set them to low opacity; however theres no fun in that, and since im not trying to achieve a photorealistic look, that wasnt a choice.
instead i turned to 3dstudio max and started learning the deal with particle systems. and after 3 days of experiments with photoshop, i finally got a look what im satisfied with. i think this is pretty good for a first try, and i like the way its coming along.
the final version should be finished soon.

Overall welldone, but is it just me or is the bottom part of the ring extremely low rez?
dinyctis's avatar
It probably is. Look at the smaller stars in the background, they're low res also. Back then, not everyone had broadband so I had to knock down the quality more than I would today :)

Texture on planet is quite poor, but the ring is superb :) Nice work !
