Here is my attempt at a fairly detailed telescope and dome animation- I would REALLY appreciate any critiques and suggestions you have for how to make it better (more photo-realistic).
Some things I plan to change:
I mistakenly thought making the grass density fade as it approaches the foundation of the pad would be more natural, that was a mistake - it looks like hair plugs near the telescope.
I used backdrops for the trees in the background, but something seems off, not sure what… ideas?
I should probably use a brighter sky-dome, It seems too dark.
in the final render I will probably animate the grass… have a gentle breeze…
300 frames took 18 hours to render at 720p
