If you don’t understand the reference in the title, Google it. (and pay more attention to NASA)
This is my 2nd attempt at creating a planet in Blender, we won’t be discussing the first attempt. I kinda followed a tutorial, though the tutorial images were so blurry that this might as well be all me. Though, some things the guy typed to accompany the images did point me in the right direction, so we’ll at least give him a nod for that. Anywho, here it is:
I made the planet using about a half a dozen different spheres and 8k textures that I made myself. Blender definitely has more material options than trueSpace, there are a lot of things that I did that I couldn’t have done in tS, besides using 8k textures.
