Considering adding the moon.

Wow. I love the idea, and I think you did a good job modeling it.

I’m not sure if the moon is necessary, and I think it could take away from the overall presentation of the piece. Although, it could be a nice accent. It’s up to you.

Yes, I suppose modeling a UV sphere is very difficult, with all that spacebarring and clicking… I mean, it would take an entire three seconds using hotkeys. I salute him.

If you made the texture yourself (which I know you didn’t), I would be very impressed. Since all you really did was the lighting, I’ll crit that. Looks like a couple of lamps/spot lights. Nice job.

No offense, but this would take very little work and it has been done many, many times. Even with all this, you executed it perfectly… So I have no reason to give you a bad rating.

Alden, I never said it took me a long time. It took me about an hour, most of which was making minor, nearly unnoticable adjustments.

bsinger, Thanks, i spent alot of time on the modeling of the UV sphere :wink: .
