Planet Earth by ~sanmonku
Most beautiful and fragile christmas bulb of our solar system. The only focus in this picture is the earth. It should remember everybody, and it doesn't matter if you are celebrating christmas or anything else, we all live on the same little sphere. Appreciate life as a whole and our planet will appreciate you!

Planet Earth (this isn't stock !)



>> this is NOT stock <<


The Earth with nightlights, the starmap should be very simple...

max & ps

hope you like it.


DD O_O ! big thanks to :icontaenaron: :)
and thanks for all your :+fav:'s and comments ! :)

@ all that ask how i made it, im not 100% sure anymore but the earth has ~5 rendered layers with 8k earth map and a nightmap a few falloff maps, composited in ps, can be that the atmo is a combo of ps glow and rendered 3d atmo, cloud map is composed of a few sky photos. the starmap i still dont like :D and at the cloud layer is still something to fix.. i hate textures that dont fit on spheres :D
i think the raytracing shadows from the cloud map did a good job

btw the water is a shader.

thanks again to all and :icontaenaron: , i hope i find time to answer some more comments :)
