Nice use of the clouds. I’ve had good luck using volumetric clouds for nebulas.

Theres no cloud primitive in that render,lol.
There is a fog primitive inside a sphere with 3d aura enabled.
The fractal render was heavily smudged out in photoshop.
The two images below were postworked in photoshop to make
the background in the first render.
Edit Sorry i meant fog primitive, i have a really bad time with clouds in carrara

A3DLover, that background in your image is just GORGEOUS !!!

Heck, you could even get rid of the spaceship and have a beautiful image…

And in the light of an honest critique only intended to help, and in no way intended to offend anyone in any way whatsoever….

Personally, I think the spaceship totally ruins the image. The lighting on the ship doesn’t match the background lighting, and is far too well lit, especially the front of the craft. There’s incredible drama in the background, but the ship’s lighting is just blah….

You might want so move the ship to off on the right hand side or something and make it really, really small, to give a sense of drama of impending disaster or something as it heads for that gnarly planet. Or just make the ship so small you can’t see it   smile

But seriously, step back a bit and consider what the real sources of light would be in that situation. In space there’s only one or two light sources, which are the sun (or nearby stars or whatever) and any reflected light off nearby objects/planets. There’s really nothing that would light your ship like that.

And if you are gonna have the ship in the scene, I think you’re missing an opportunity to show the interest of the ship’s texture by having it all a dull gray.

Anyway, I hope that doesn’t offend you in any way, nor does it offend anyone on your behalf, nor does it offend anyone who might like gray spaceships.

Your completely right about the lighting on spaceship, its not realistic.
Theres two distance lights in the scene with intensity set to 50 percent and shadows at 50 percent.
The bulb flare is set to 0 intensity.
The odd lighting is a hdr file that doesnt match the background.
The spaceship model has almost 600 parts to it totally unmapped.
When i modeled it in anim8or years ago i had the modeler set to
“create new object” for each new mesh, boy was that a mistake lol.
If your like me you probably have noticed that 304 class stargate ship
changes over the series franchise and the studio has different versions for different shots.

And true enough plain gray shader is plain.
Below is another carrara render, the color on the ship is actually the hdr file illuminating the model
while texture shader is something i made in photoshop and the shader editor in carrara.

Feel free to CnC anything of mine anytime.

I liked both of your renders A3DLover. You created this spaceship? Is it for sale or otherwise available? I love that more gritty style of ship as opposed to the retro or ‘clean’ styles I see so often.

i wouldnt say “created” more like modeled it from reference images found on the web.
Heres my free stuff http://www.sharecg.com/pf/full_uploads.php?pf_user_name=A3DLover
You can find “my Daedalus” version there.
I should go and re adjust my preferences there to allow commercial use of my models.

some fun with my latest purchased product (by stonemason you know) plus atmospheres of mine; I think the C8 biased engine is understimated by many, taking into account the average time (15 min) for rendering at 1920x and the intuitive shader handling. suitable even for movies imo

some other shots with different lighting
tutorials? too much to say within minutes, I’m sorry
new product? maybe, many of these atmospheres have been conceived for easy and quick handling nonetheless they must be still refined for selling
what about Stonemason little masterpiece: no one has made a cool animation to be properly used in such a great scenery (i.e. hip hop dancers, skaters, graffiti writers)?
I’d like to see what comes out

I do all of my structural and mechanical line work in Carrara. So any vehicles, buildings, robots, etc—I just let Carrara do its thing. Then yeah, with organic forms like people and trees and stuff I use the pen tool. Same goes for all the colors.
