Another sun test, now more red

This afternoon, I played with lighting and texturing, particularly in relation to the sun and sky in our Environmental project.  I managed to make yet another sun and sky test, this time a sunrise, as opposed to a sunset; and I loosely based it on the Lion King.

I rendered this test using Maya Software and I have managed to achieve the red effect that we were seeking.

I simply used lights, which I textured red, to create the lighting effect across the terrain.  As for the sky itself; the sun is just a polygon sphere which I textured with a yellow Lambert and added a Glow Intensity.  The sky is a polygon plane that I textured with a Ramp.

I now need to show this to the rest of the group to see what they think
