Dying Moon

This project was meant to try out and expand my knowledge of PBR and realistic lighting techniques, especially the use of them in unique environments like space, where atmospheric refraction is almost non-existent and shadows are much more harsh.

In practicing all of this, I also tried my hand at backlighting via glowing materials. This, combined with fine tuning my completely custom made, physically based materials, and the unconventional subject matter, led to quite a challenge.
