Oesha by Snowfall-The-Cat Oesha by Snowfall-The-Cat
===== DOWNLOAD FOR FULL VIEW =) =====

I have always wanted to say that i painted an entire world by hand, and, now i finally can say i am done it =^^= yays! <3 doing it by hand makes every bit unique and you make everything with love and care, it feels natural and believable and recognizable. random generators today just cant do this.
i need to do ice sheets now for the north and south poles, but those are seasonal things.

This took me about 1.3 years to paint completely by hand. but i am very happy = ) i did not paint the clouds though, just the land and the bump map with specularity for space engine. My textures are 8192x4096. i think that is the max resolution i will do for now. any more and it will take me 4x longer to do, and I'm just not into that. besides i don't think my computer can do anything larger anyway. i got to do the rest of the solar system now = )

Oesha is the main world for my Moonsides universe. It is a moon of a large gas giant planet named Jeulio (you can see ring shadows and Jeulio's cloud tops in the top image.

thanks = D i feel as if time was also very important, if you gave yourself an entire year you could paint a good map too = )

Hm might be true. But I'd have to practice a lot before it looks realistic.

Cool :) I only painted bump-maps so far, I was using gimp and that is certainly not the right tool.

Yes I use Gimp a lot for editing. But for painting it isn't really good.

Oh, it's positively MAGNIFICENT!!! Glorious! Breath taking!

I agree about painting a world by hand. Much more desirable then generating it or using textures. Real planets aren't composed of ready-made elements.=p
Space Engine does a nice job with the clouds. But I would still like to come up with a way to generate pleasing ones in Blender Cycles. I hate using generic Earth cloud textures.

thanks! =^^= that really means a lot to me!

and for sure!
Clouds are harder to do. ive thought about painting them too, but the modified earth clouds i have work fine too i guess.
how come you don't like to use earth clouds on models? = o just the wrong flow?

It's only the truth.^^

Well, I just don't care for the idea of them looking the same and recognizable all the time. I've seen on other's works, even if it's changed around a bit, parts of it are still recognizable. Clouds are unique and different every moment in time. It's the same as copying parts of Earth's map and putting it on an alien planet. Anyway.:D
