So I’m pretty sure you all know Andrew Price and his beautifully created tutorials…?
No? If not then check it out here www.blenderguru.com
If you do then you may have seen his new tutorial on how to create a stylized Earth.
One thing I noticed with his tutorial, is that all though he supplied all the resources required for the tutorial, they were not the best out there. I did a little research and hunting on the internet and found many images, maps and textures all of which were good in their own right. The problem was that they were all different sizes, did not have the features I wanted or just looked plain rubbish. Being the good sport I am, I decided to collect some images off the internet and edit them in photshop to my liking and that is what brings me here.
I have spent the last half day editing these images with my friend for me to compile into one folder for you to use at ease. I have also edited a high res moon texture with some slight colour and added in a bump map.
The moon textures are: 4000x4000 pixels
The earth textures are: 21600x10800 pixels
I have included and edited a specular map, normal map and cloud map including an already created earth texture, bump map and city lights map.
I hope you find my efforts helpful and the resources of good use
Sorry for the large file size but 21600x10800 pixel images dont come cheaply, you may resize the images to your liking and edit them however you want.
Size is 130mb and you will require a program to extract the .Rar file.
Peace out my friends
I suggest adding a value of 0.020 Normal bump for the cloud texture.
Many thanks to NASA & CM for the resources in which I have edited.
