Not by me, and I don't think the artist meant for it to resemble anything from Futurama, but c'mon...

Mm, posting at like 2:15 in the morning your time, Ess?  You should do that more often. big grin

Oh, you're taking a computer graphics class?  Anyway, ah, yeah, these remind me of those renders you did a while ago of the PE ship.  Cool.  Additionally, the first one reminds me of your Saturn pic.
Just a lot less green.
Is the class for anything specific, i.e., is it specifically related to your astrophysics master's?

heh, no it's not really related to anything I'm doing.  I'm just taking the class for fun.  The trouble is that the first assignment I was given was to build a model of the solar system, so, naturally, I went a little overboard and was up until 2:30 last night making it smile

Heavy.  : D   Bit of a massive first assignment, hey?  Just as long as you didn't 'go overboard'.. off the edge of the solar system, or something. tongue

I was using 3DS Max to do the stuff I posted last summer, but I'm using Maya now.

Ahh, Maya. I could never quite get into that one. I had to substitute 3d studio when I was at uni.

One thing that strikes, you've got a high specular bloom on earth right over the middle of a continent. There's a mid-scale set of texture maps here that includes a nice specular map (assuming you haven't already been there of course... smile). I came up with a few tricks for making realistic looking atmosphere as well but I don't know how easy they'd be to translate into maya's tools.

I use Maya (since the start of '07) so mention how you do it in 3ds Max and I'll see if I can do it in Maya

ooh, thanks for that, Arch.  I have to turn in an animation tomorrow afternoon of the planets orbiting the sun.  Those images will seriously do the trick!

it's pretty much the same process.  It's just really obnoxious that there seems to be no way to take something I build in 3ds and open it in Maya.

Export the file from Max as an .OBJ then import the .OBJ into Maya. I use the same process between Maya and Mudbox.

The basic trick is to use a second sphere a fraction bigger than your planet with a cloud map on it, and a third slightly bigger again with radial gradient material on it that sets transparency, self-illumination and colour and always points at the camera so you end up with something like this:



Or this:



On its own that would make a pretty effect but you have the problem of the glowy atmosphere going around the night side of the planet. Now I have no idea about maya (I never got deep enough into it) but I assume it can set up multi-part material to combine several other materials together. In 3d studio you can have a material that reacts to light, so the lit side of the planet gets the atmospheric gradient material whilst the dark side can be set to be completely transparent. A similar effect on the cloud layer can be used to create all sorts of shading effects if you're clever enough about it - not that I got that far... smile

I've never needed such complex shaders as those, just Blinn's, Phongs, and Lamberts.
I've got the scene completely setup, but Maya for some reason isn't doing any transparency, gah... oh I'm using .jpgs instead .tgas that would explain it. Ah tomorrow.
I even got a moon and stars in the background.

Perhaps, but they won't give you a particularly good appearance of the atmosphere.  The reason I've used this more complex arrangement is that, when you're looking at the limb of a planet, you're looking sideways at the atmosphere, rather than straight down through it. It's like looking through a sheet of glass from the edge rather than the front.

Once I get the transparency working properly for the clouds, I'm 99.9% sure know what the problem is. I've just never needed/wanted to make complex shaders before.

Here's an AO shot of a current WIP

The colored version of this: http://ferah11.deviantart.com/art/Futurama-Egipt-BW-152851277

 I didn't draw it, but the artist did give permission for others to color it. And I have to admit, I had a lot of fun.

5'10" is average for American males.  Leela's taller than the average American woman and has been shown to be approx. the same heigth, so a 5'11" Fry and Leela are very plausible.
