Nice work, but to me it looks neither NASA nor Star Trek. That is pure Chesley Bonestell.
Awesome. I think aridas
would be ok with that. I know I am.
This looks great, but I have a tech question for you.
How do you make the glowing areas glow? I haven't been able to achieve that look....
Using Blender's render nodes. There's a new node called Glare. http://www.blender.org/development/r...ositing-nodes/
I set up a separate render layer that just has the lights, apply glare to it, then composite it back together.
