Planetary Rings View From The Ground

Using the 3D model from experiment 4, in Blender I moved my camera down to the planet surface and pointed it up at the rings.  This is the resulting render.

I will now paint on top of this in Manga Studio to create a concept image of the Dark Temple Of Mymosule from my digital comic project.

Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 3

OK so I decided to use the colour ramp method from Experiment 2 and put together a simple scene with a marble textured planet.

The rings are actually made from a single disc, it’s the colour ramp texture that makes it appear as multiple rings.  Colour ramps allow you to specify transparent areas so I’ve just got a single ring with some transparent areas on it.

I then followed Reaping Fire’s YouTube tutorial on making a star field.

Here’s the result of my Making Planetary Rings In Blender Experiment 3:
