Starting in Maya, we’ll model a planet, apply textures, light the scene and create a render before taking the result into Photoshop and painting more details to bring it to life. Next, the course will focus on the stars, galaxies, and nebulae that make up the rest of the scene. The last step will be to prepare the layered elements for final tweaks and finesse in Nuke.
A key aspect of the course, like other DMP courses, is to post your work in the forums and get high quality feedback from Ludo. It’s an invaluable opportunity to learn from an extremely talented artist.
