DISCOVERY - HD 37605 c by DCkiq
DISCOVERY - HD 37605 c
Despite the title, this exoplanet isn't a recent discovery, but rather refers to the methods I found recently to create a more realistic planet in C4D. Namely, a Gas Giant.

Subsurface Scattering is a material effect I found that gives the material a sort of translucency. I used it here to give the atmosphere some depth in contrast to the clouds, who also receive some texture from it.

Backlight here was used to illuminate both sides of the rings, much like how they do in real life. I used to use a cylinder and boolean object to just simulate the dark shadows on the rings, but noticed that they do not show up when those parts are over another illuminated object, like a moon or horizon. So a backlit material helps.

Displace Deformer isn't as recent a discovery, but I had a wonderful idea to use it on a few capless cylinders to make aurorae.

Base texture is from priteeboy's Gas Giant resource pack, so go give the guy a hug.

Parent-Child Bonding - Concept in Progress by DCkiq
Parent-Child Bonding - Concept in Progress
Yindako transiting the new host planet Niantaoqi (Working Name), as Yindako is now a moon. Yindako's lights are identifying with Niantaoqi's colossal thunderstorms.

Face it, There are more moons than planets. And a big planet would make a lovely feature in the sky. As well as the benefit of additional magnetic protection (given your atmosphere is thick enough to deflect planetary radiation) from the host planet and fellows moons are easier to get to (now Jinbo and Kwandai).
