Barren World by DCkiq Barren World by DCkiq
A world probably the size of Mars. There's no life on land due to the weaker magnetosphere. And the ocean-lake-things are probably giant brine pools filled with crustaceans and the like.

Something I haven't done in a while.

It was made in Cinema 4D. With an atmosphere shader plugin. All it is with three spheres, each with an atmosphere, cloud, and surface textures.

Thanks for kindness.
so did you draw the landscapes and added clouds and atmosphere? or just put a texture?
I am interested in the software, I want to create my original one like this [link]

The surface itself depends on what I wanna make. If I'm just making a random planet, I just generate a random texture playing with noise and colorizer gradients. If it's a major world that I bring up multiple times, I have maps saved that I made in Photoshop.

The clouds are a separate texture. They are nothing more than a cloud map (royalty-free easily found on Google) alpha with bump applied. The atmosphere is made with a special plugin

How exactly do you make your water? I've tried a few things but they never come out right.

I used C4D. Open up the material and, in the Color Channel, Use the Colorizer shader with a Noise shader in it. I used Naki noise, but play around to see what you like. In Colorizer, set the colors as so [link]. (You can steal these colors if you want.) Make sure to widen the Material Editor window so you can make finer adjustments in the gradients.

Now go back out to the color channel, and right-click the Colorizer, "Copy Channel". Now go into the Specular Color channel and and right-click "Paste Channel." [link]

Now in that colorizer, change all ocean gradients to white and land to black. This'll make the oceans shiny, but not land. [link] Be careful not to move the border gradients AT ALL. Otherwise, it'll look funny.

Ah okay. I don't have C4D so I wonder if I can apply this to Blender.

Aye, but the probable is that I'm still not very good with doing much more then creating low poly models. Material settings, normal maps, shaders etc etc are all way over my head. :P

Can you load images as a texture? If so, I can bake the texture for you as a JPEG.

Yes you can. I really only have experience with Diffuse textures though.

If you do need it, I can PM you a zip of the plugin (i'm pretty sure it's free). The oceans are very well done (going from shallow to deeper water) which I think is my favorite part of this planet.

Quite cool! The oceans look very nice. The clouds though look maybe too white compared to the style of the continents. Or maybe there are not enough clouds...
Anyway, good work!

On a side note, there's no argument against the above, but according to scientists, before marine life exuded massive mounts of (cumulative over like a billion years) of oxygen (in excess of what would re-bond with surface materials as oxygen likes to do), the oceans were quite green actually... not today's familiar blue.

Very fascinating idea. O: I like how the oceans have deteriorated and how the planet is slowly becoming what it is known as today.

Love the shine on the oceans. XD

So it has no life due to weak magnetic field, but still has a sizable atmosphere capable of cloud forming and keeping water liquid? :P

A weak magnetic field does not rule out the possibility of a breathable atmosphere.

:iconrunetrantor:

No, but makes it fragile, and hard to maintain in the long term without replinishing.
One could technically give an atmosphere to the moon, but you would have to keep repairing it every hundred years or so... which is not that bad of a deal...

The upper level of livable air pressure at sea level gives an atmosphere a little less massive than Venus, which is fully protected (and then some) from solar radiation despite no strong magnetic field.

:iconrunetrantor:
RuneTrantor Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Assuming Venus atmosphere was not pure poison of course. :P

And sure, the upper limit is near, but it IS a limit, meaning that we could life, but it would not be too fun.

No, I mean that it apparently has a breathable atmosphere still, but there are absolutely no plants to replenish it.
And those 'oceans' look too small to hold enough bacteria or whatnot that could take plant's place.

Are you implying Earth's brand of life is the only kind that can exist?

:iconrunetrantor:

No, on the contrary, I assume it is different, because if it was Earth based it would simply not be breathable NOW, forget the whole 'in process' thing, it would be dead already.
I am assuming some algae or microbe in the seas generates oxygen, taking the trees job, but even then, I think they are too small of an area to make much difference, even if the seas are filled with the dudes. (Unlikely, since they would need food and a whole food chain)
