Google Earth Studio Early Access

I've been invited by Google to the Google Earth Studio early access.

Google Earth Studio is a web-based animation tool for Google Earth imagery. It allows users to create and render videos using Google Earth.

I'll be using Google Earth Studio, through Heaven's Disciples Labs, to see how it can be used for world building, starting with its use in studying geography, topography, and city planning.

The image below is of downtown Cleveland, Ohio, that I captured from Google Earth Studio.

I'm going to create videos of cityscapes for inspiration in modeling 3D buildings and cities for my video game development.

The New, Ash Gray, Planet Hadea

The new design for Planet Hadea, in the Atlantica System of the Heaven's Disciples Universe, now has an ash gray biome palette with a lot of volcanic activity.

The previous design was a volcanic red one. I think the gray design looks much nicer for this scorched world. I'm still working on the design and will be adding more gray to the white areas of the planet.
