I used to work in games but am currently teaching (CG, VFX and games development). CG has been one of my many passions but since I started working I don't have as much time for personal pursuits. Some time ago I started a personal project to create a photorealistic Earth in CG. I only work on it on-and-off so the going is slow. The main problem is that I'm still learning Houdini plus I lack enough knowledge for some of the effects I wanted to achieve. Critical comments or suggestions on how to improve the shots are most welcome. Hope you enjoy the videos!
