#2

my concept sketch … i havent read the book … lets see what happens next

cheers :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

i just begun with a star field…


#4

my basic idea / sketch of the earth, the starfield was created in max, need to add more elements…


#5

looks interesting. keep it up! good luck and have fun in the challenge


#6

added the sphere, i think most of the explosion and stuff will be done using photoshop… other than that …

need to get a nice earth texture hehe :wink:


#7

hey thanx dude! :smiley: … still need to work on something really solid …

cheers mate! :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

cool! i found a default earth material in max, but … yikes! this is certainly not what i want :frowning:

need to work on it a lot … :frowning:


#9

trying to modify the mapping coordinates and reduce blurring…the settings on the right are the same for all the 3 maps…


#10

some more changes … this time … the colour falloff map …


#11

i think this should do…i wanted the illumination around the earth to be more brighter and a little ‘tight’,i especially didnt want it to have more coverage…

i even added the original material so i could see the values and change them accordingly in the new earth material…


#12

this is what i got … i also added a displacement map with a value of 1 … i didnt want it to be so strong …

less is more :smiley:

by the way for the displacement map … i just duplicated the original earth map > desaturated it > and added to the displacement map slot with 0.1 blurring…

will have to see how far i can take this image … :s

more updates soon :wink:


#13

wow pretty sweet…whered you get the map of the earth?


#14

hey culpin :slight_smile: … i used 3dsmax default earth material, located in the library, but as u can see i had to modify it a lot in order get the right look.

check out the link given below…lots of earth maps!

#15

the earths horizon … still not sure about it all … but need to play with the elements in order to solve this puzzle … :slight_smile:


#16

This is looking really great so far, I love the look of the surface right now, keep up the good work :slight_smile:


#17

the starfield looks particularly good, can’t wait to see how this one turns out — and you should read the book, it’s awesome!! :slight_smile:


#18

i think the atmosphere glow is a little to wide, maybe tighten it up a bit?
