here is what I’ve come up with in the last week or two; still have a lot to learn. I was hoping to make this an animation but I have done some thing wrong which prevented me from inserting any key frames.
The stars was from a Blender Binge tutorial and I tried to make a ring of rocks which I ended mucking up so there missing as well.
Coming along nicely. I recognize that ship Same book as the gun. If the planet tut with rings is the same one I think I tried, I messed up as well. I messed mine up so bad it maxed out memory and CPU and crashed Blender. Safe to say, I did not complete either. So I think you got further than I did.
Wow looks great! What did you do wrong that kept you from keyframing? I would try to open a new Blender file and then go to file –> append and append everything from here into new file to see if it fixes it. Or let us know the issue 🙂
Very nice scene! You could maybe add some noise or musgrave or a combination of the two and perhaps connect them to a bump node with very low strength to give the planet some texture and color variations so it’s not just a smooth soft yellow all over.
