I've given him a bit of a pose. It may need a little more but there's some skinning issues I need to fix.

I've thinking about a name for my major project for some time as what I had (Mars to Earth Human Support Suit) was a little too long and didn't really encompass the entirety of the project. I spoke to Alan who said I should think of a good acronym. Today I thought of M.E.L (Mars Earth Logistics). I quite like this, any opinions?

Mars in its current condition
Mars after terraforming
This is the shading network for the surface of the planet
This is for the clouds. I used a clouds 3d texture for the colour which I also plugged into the transparency. It needed a reverse node so that the black was cut out rather than the white. I animated the scale of the 3d placement node so that the clouds 'swim' giving the appearance of them moving and changing.
For the atmosphere I used a sample info node to pick out the facing ratio and then used a ramp for the colour and another ramp for the transparency.
