    Question Planets?

    I am new to ArtRage and am enjoying the software very much. I am trying to create a scene in space and am struggling with making the planets 3d. I have tried a few stencils but my "planet" still seems flat. If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful and when I finally finish the piece I will acknowledge all those that have helped.

    Many Thanks, a frustrated but eager ArtRager.

    Welcome 3gbunny.

    First of all planets are a very cool subject.... i hope your show your work when your finished!

    Some tricks.
    -Use the stencils as you already did.
    -Use the same stencil as you did for the planet also for the atmosphere...just scale it a little bit!
    -Use different layers if you can, for body & atmosphere, and you can finally merge all planet layers together and move the planet around if you want
    -Check where your sun (or another star) is and check the lighting. For that check varous pictures of phases of the moon or other planets..
    -And well make it interessting by showing the planet in a phase between full and hidden... or just show a part of it. i've done this only in artrage... and i can give you some more tips if you want or in special

    greez & happy painting

    Thumbs up Thanks

    Thanks for the advise Maror - Could you direct me to any "planet" stencils as I am merely using smoke, gradients and circles?

    hehe...you wanna a finished planet stencil?

    i think the only two wich are necessary are the circle and the ruler...the rest you cann paint by yourself...wich is more fun i can tell you

    but here how i set up:

    use the circle stencil below...it's better than the default circle stencil for planets. dont forget that you cna invert the stencil in the context menu...i did that with the great circle...
    to check the result simply press f5/f6 to hide and unhide all stencils!
