Finishing 1 Month of Low Poly Practice Challenge - Finished! I ended with space shuttle… So how better to start a space tourism if not by going to space? :slight_smile:



Love the bot.


Have been playing with the glossy shader for mirror effects.

Nice scene. One query? Where is the precipitation 3% occurring? Indoors or out? How? :rofl:


Haha. Good point, maybe on terraformed Mars and they’re about to visit. Couldn’t think of many relevant categories, perhaps speed or random coordinates.

Sorry for posting the same pic that i just finished, but thought that this could relate to the subject, still creating new mechs though, Am a beginner so any tips would be really helpful


You have still some days left. Try to improve the scene … more space feel …

This is my 2nd render in cycles.
Thank you


Humans won’t change. Space tourism, same old, Sights, Sand, Sun, and cheap booze.

The final render made interesting multiple refraction reflections yet still recognisable I hope.


This one, make me smile … Really!
And yes I like these ‘accidental?’ refractions too.
It is like wrinkles in the plastic dome. You should explore this more …
And maybe a darker drinking glass, beer bottle. Hardly to see if not zoomed in.

When I see other peoples work, I get so many ideas. Like a “beach” with a lot of ‘space’ litter.

Did you try a nearly black background? The contrast between render and illustration is too high.

Do you mean the blacks in the outer space are not as black as the shadows etc. on the planet? I did not try a plain black ‘space’. I actually got a nassa image, found how to make it into an equilateral, and used it as one would an hdri. Ended up needing to be pretty close in to see the tourist, so not much space vista visible, just a hint of the wonders being out there to see. The glass of amber liquid looked better when made without the dome showing. I had to mess about with settings actually making it more cheap cloudy plastic for it to show at all inside the dome at the scene distance, rather than the glass filling my screen while working on it. Leaves a lot to be desired, but I was trying not to make it a life long project! Decided to stop not add more domes, robot service vehicles, Gawping at the odd human tourist local wildlife, a door or means of access, spaceport in distance with rocket traffic, etc. lol.



Love it. So many cool details.

Had an idea which turned into way too much work and it is still a bit slap-dash.

Late cos I left the bushes for last which was a mistake and cost me a lot of time.


Great resemblance.
