Sun

I made this for CG sphere. It’s my first real attempt at anything in blender, besides just playing around and completing some tuts. I am pretty pleased with the results. I was thinking about having the sun melt the floor a little but I am not really sure how to accomplish that. Anyone have any suggestions?
