Here's a failure from me. Very recent, so still working on it.

Why not. Maybe later.

Some other renders.

When i saw something similar to the Saturn like planet image below i stopped working on it.

I've got more than a few of those , but I'm always thinking, maybe that one feature would be useful someday.
Here's some rocks that turned out more like horse manure, but you never know :)

Looks like alien vegetation.

Looks good! I wonder; has anyone ever tried to make snow using clouds?

Yes there is one or more old threads about that René.

The middle Saturn image looks really good. Too bad you stopped working on it.

Thanks for the link Kadri, but I was actually thinking about thick snow on the ground when I saw AP's image. :) It must be doable but it will probably result in long render times. Subsurface scattering like in that image is hard to achive using only textures.

I have hundreds of unposted images on my hard drive, mostly from abandoned projects. Maybe, someday I'll finish them.

Trying to sculpt with the painted shader. It turned out to be very cumbersome. ::)

There are very old threads about clouds using them in different ways.
It is certainly doable. Not sure about the lighting. Haven't tried them in that way René

I might give it a go when I finish the Mars project, if ever. ;)

The believably is still lacking some significant details required to make a convincing enough cumulonimbus cloud. I never attempted trying to make snow using clouds.
