Question about Planetary Textures


Recommended Posts

As you guys may have guessed I like making space pictures. You can see them in the pictorium if interested. Anyway, onto the point.

The moons look wicked, but the planet itself isfairly flat and unimpressive. Does anyone have any ideas on how to add texture to the planet's surface? I'm talking about things like mountain ranges and valleys and stuff like that.

Edit: Another question. Do any other fractals exist aside from Mandelbrot and Julia?

Another Edit: I managed to figure out a way. Looks alright. Use localized embossed areas underneath. Any other ideas are still welcome though.

Yes. They are not built in to PDN, but they do exist. You would have to find an image of one (or generate one with another program) and then use it as a starting point, but they do exist. A search for fractals on this site will give you some interesting places to start looking.

Total hack.
