Haumea Artist's Impression v3 by Snowfall-The-Cat Haumea Artist's Impression v3 by Snowfall-The-Cat
= Download is in the top right =

Updated: Adjusted the shape of Haumea and texture features to suit the real dimensions shown on Wikipedia. This update includes a ring texture and the .blend file as well for the best renders = ) the texture maps also include features caused by ring material and cracks on the outer lobes. i did my best to predict what Haumea could be like, and this is nearly as good as i can get without a flyby. enjoy~

Updated: improved colour and bump map. please note that this map is best used on a 3 axis sphere.
i will make a space engine addon available once it finally has that ability..

If you want to enjoy the older versions of this object i have made, you can find them here:
V1.0 sta.sh/01q13iipxrbk
V2.0 sta.sh/01pdritwmlv5

-------------------------
I love Haumea. got to wonder how such a fast rotation would affect how the surface and internal structure would work. affter working so much on the textures for my WIP solar systems, Pluto, and Charon i wanted to make some artists concept textures of how i imagine how Haumea might look. all we know about it right now is that it is egg shaped from rotating so fast, and it has a red area on its surface. I dont know if it is as red as i have it here though. but who knows.
If i had to pick, a visit to Haumea would definitely be on my list of worlds to see in my lifetime. too bad the focus is on Pluto and mars so much. I bet Haumea it looks completely different then how i have it depicted. i would love to be proven wrong by the real thing!

Use the maps all you like. just Credit the artist who made it. ^^

Made in Blender 3D and GIMP

I like that equatorial ridge from the ring material, very nice

we do not have a lot of examples of rockey worlds with rings, and how that interacts with the surface. still a fun idea to play around with ^^ glad you like the idea.

hi, can you convert the .blend file to a .3ds file and upload it pls?

Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
I can try. though 3Ds may have limitations at this polygone count. so i may have to try another file format like Obj or something ells that accepts textures.
any other file format sugestions?

What measurements should I use if I want to use the ring texture in Celestia?
Reply
:iconsnowfall-the-cat:
Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Celestia has issues doing rings around a triaxial sphere, it warps the rings into the same oval shape and it just doesn't work like that haha. that being said, i wont be an ass and i will tell you.

according to Wikipidia:

"The ring has a radius of about 2,287 km, a width of ~70 km and an opacity of 0.5"

squee333 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2017
Okay. It's just that there's a lot of blank space around the rings in your texture, and the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the image are not the same. How do I work with that?

:iconsnowfall-the-cat:
Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
oh. i guess you will have to find the center point and crop it to that, i just centered it by eye in blender, admittedly i didn't put much attention to that part of it lol.

I kind of feel bad asking, but I don't suppose you'd be able to do that? Thanks in advance.

Oh it wont be that hard. this should do the trick for being center and square in the image. www.dropbox.com/s/2zo7gxfx5vwo…

squee333 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2017
Okay, but the length/width of the image still doesn't match the rings' diameter (that is, there's still a lot of extra space around the rings).

Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
well i left a little gap because i have some very faint fading out of the rings in and outwards, its not purely transparent . if i cut it anymore you will end up with square edges where the ring texture was cut off if you looked hard enugh

Wait a minute, are the rings just a plane, or are they a texture you can wrap around?
Reply
:iconsnowfall-the-cat:
Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes they are a flat plane. i did this so i could draw in some structure in the rings instead of being perfectly the same all the way, planetary rings are never perfectly symmetrical like how current space programs portray them. though that being said, sorry i don't have a ring texture for Celestia or Space Engine to use, in fact, Haumea is so weird that none of these programs can even make Haumea properly xD Space Engine only does flattened spheres, and Celestia warps the rings because of the 3 axis shape.

Jett-Hill-Artist Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Huh. Maybe you could unwrap the rings and make a long ring texture map?
Reply
:iconsnowfall-the-cat:
Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
like, have it the smooth 1 pixel tall ring texture that programs use? or simply unwrap it so that it is in a line instead of a ring shape, while keeping the patterns?

In a line, keep the patterns.

Celestia will just end up flattening the texture into a uniform streak sadly

eventually i think. might do some of Neptune moons first or finish Puck. who knows. tell you what, if there is a big discovery about any of those dwarf planets i will work on a map ^^ i just don't have much to work with right now for them.

it's great! Can you make a 3D model from the bump map?
Reply
:iconsnowfall-the-cat:
Snowfall-The-Cat Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
yes you can = ) in the .blend file i have included. i have a modifier in place that actually warps the mesh of the object according to the bump texture. though this uses a lot of polygones, and therefore is best used for only renders at this point, as Haumea is relatively smooth and the bump map does a simpler job at showing elevation, but the method i mentioned above is certainly in place to mess with = )

Askaniy Featured By Owner Edited Oct 22, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
Thank you! If in the "Celestia" texture will fit properly on the model, it will probably be in "Celestia Origin". Only where is the modifier located and how to apply it to the final version?

if you like i can just export it for you. it wont be that hard fro me. .3DS might not be able to handle it, but i can give you a lower resolution one in .3DS and an HD one in .OBJ
