Imaginary Tiny Planet: Two takes

Finished this project earlier today. The first image is made as if the planet is close to two light sources like suns and stuff. The second is if it were far from a light source and covered in glowing grass fields. Let me know what you think!

Very cool! I love the background in the first image. How did you make the ice like effect?

Hey thanks! The effect on the second image is actually glowing grass fields. I tried to make an ice shader but I found I liked the results better if I could control where the emission came from through weight painting. So i made a particle system and covered the peaks and some areas underneath the water.

You could have just painted with vertex colour and then used it as a factor for mixing the principled BSDF and an emission bsdf. Ofc Vertex painting requires a fair amount of geometry for accurate and detailed painting.
