03-06-2020

In this video tutorial, I will show you how to create Planet Earth using Blender 2.8.

Here are the concepts covered in this video tutorial:

  • Download planet earth maps
  • Create and edit UV sphere
  • Create material for planet earth map
  • UV unwrap sphere
  • Add additional UV sphere for clouds
  • Add sunlight
  • Change word colour settings
  • Add star background
  • Change background image emission

We will use a simple sphere is to create the earth planet and also use a slightly larger sphere for the clouds.

We will download earth and cloud maps from NASA website. We will also add a stars background and add lighting to create a dark side effect on the planet model.
