Behold! Cycles invaders:

As always, done with blender, rendered in cycles.

North Korean Space Program.

Pure. 100% blender

Done and final.


Here is mine:

“Stairway to Heaven”

So this is a possible view of a space elevator’s climber :slight_smile:

I got the bitmaps for earth from NASA’s site otherwise everything is pure blender, cycles rendered. I guess it is still pure entry?

Hope you like it :slight_smile:
(Edit: copy&pasted wrong link for NASA’s images)

Trying to cause a revolt or something, classic :wink:

@Cymoth, very nice! Tried similar once, those scales are insane for good shots :wink:

@chokeamancer, is that a homage to the spectrum?

Thanks rarebit :slight_smile:
Yeah, the scales in that are kind of troublesome. Had to cheat quite a bit to get the effect as I wanted, like the earth is perhaps twice the size of the climber, and the cable shrinks on it way to almost zero :wink:
