Hey everyone, this is my latest project which I have called ‘Re-Entry’. Made in Blender, with a few minor post-production changes in Photoshop CS3. Any Comments and Criticism would be much appreciated. I also intend to create an animation of this scene when I next get the chance.
UPDATE: Now with updated Earth based on comments given. Any further comments very welcome.
the meteor is awesoem but i think you left something out a bit on the earth, looks like a picture mapped to a sphere.
Cheers yeh that is pretty much all the Earth is, I wasn’t sure how to improve it. Any suggestions would be great.
Any more comments from anyone?
I fully agree with Brados on this. There are two things that really look wrong:
- The earth texture seems to be a low resolution one
- The ground shouldn’t have any specularity
Take a look at this, http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=132869&highlight=earth+tutorial , it may help
The specularity on the ground is the major issue I think, land shouldn’t have any, but it will be quite strong for sea areas.
Okay thanks for the feedback everyone, I have now updated it with a new Earth through the tutorial provided by KAHR-Alpha, so thanks Any more feedback would be very welcome
This one looks really cool. Though wouldn’t a meteor start burning only when it enters the atmostphere? I don’t see one he’s supposedly entering.
That is a good point I was going for artistic over realistic but I know what you mean.
