Realistic Sun

Im making a space scene for a friend. I just started the sun, and I made a texture for it.
But how can I make the sun not only like a textured ball? If anyone knows…

look after that and this

Enjoy :wink:

It doesnt work for me.
PS: I need something like this:

Particles and post processing (compositor) is key here :slight_smile:
Use particles to add the sparks, compositor to add bloom/glow.

Also, keep in mind that the sun is a big ball of gas and not a burning sphere (there’s no oxygen in space, so that’s not really an option).
