Good job, stay with it, maybe blast the background with some different sized stars, but the mood is there.

finally got yafaray working on ubuntu a little tricky…but mostly because when I did get it working I had no idea how to use it sooooo I though it was still broken. As usual more time spent getting things to work then working on something I would like to work on. O well full blend ahead more simple material work and texturing.Start learning yafaray to.

ONE QUESTION
to any one using yafray the background i used is just a simple star picture i pulled from the Internet. I wanted to use it as a background texture but it would zoom all the way in and look pix-elated, I ended it just placing it as a texture on a mesh plane . It was the right size I just couldn’t figure out how to resize the background textures any advice?
