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.
