Space Nebula by overseer Space Nebula by overseer
This is a model of a Space Nebula I've created, mainly for use with animations, as static backgrounds do not work.

It is essentially only a curved plane with a trexture, but if used as a backdrop it will create the illusion of three dimensionality, due to the transparency map.

You can :bulletblue:DOWNLOAD:bulletblue: an archive with the nebula to the right which contains the textured mesh (.lwo format) and a scene file (.lws) format, that has the mesh setup with a starfield. The starfield is a textured environment and only shows when you render. I will put a tutorial up on how to create this shortly.

Below is a fly-by showcase of the nebula:

Software: Lightwave 9 (.LWO)

Textures: Created in Photoshop, applied with a transparency map on a curved surface.

Very impressive stuff, it's a shame you can only show the static version here. Well done indeed!

Well, there is a YouTube link in the description..... and you can upload animations to dA, too, but you have to apply for that ability.

And thanks.
