“Fading atmosphere” effect

As I said yesterday, the globe I represented in “Blue Levitating Marble” scene is based on a very detailed Andrew Price’s tutorial; you can find it here.

Levitating blue marble

I imagined this scene after seeing Andrew Price‘s tutorial “How to make earth in blender (cycles)”.

During last weeks I decided to work again on that scene and make some changes and improvements, thanks to the bigger experience in modeling, materials creation, post-processing and generally in the use of […]

Today I want to share a little trick to create plane objects with double face in Blender. An example? A leaf: with this method you can apply a first material to the leaf upper face and a second material, different from the other one, to the leaf lower face. Node base configuration is super easy: […]

Pro-Lighting skies

Last week Andrew Price released his new “Pro-Lighting skies” Blender addon, a HDR image pack very useful for external scenes. You can find below my first test with this new addon; I want to highlight two important aspects: a great decrease of memory consumption: from about 4190MB to about 3150MB, almost entirely occupied by materials […]
