The Earth

Here is a project that I have been working on recently…presenting: The Earth!
Let me know what you think needs improvement to achieve the best realism possible.

The sky looks like a force field or something around the edges. Otherwise it looks good.

Too shiny, really… take a look here:


And the water will have more reflection than the land.

And if the light from the sun come from the side is does there, the other side would appear very dark. Remember - it’s night on the other side =)

but good star-background. Looks great!

Follow this guy’s tutorial:

To get the specularity properly done. You’ll be significantly more pleased with the results. Just make sure to leave off the halo effect because it wouldn’t be visible when viewing a planet that’s that far away.

looks quite nice. :smiley:
