30 awesome procedural volumetric spheres & BONUS course with 2 projects

by 3Dmodelmonk in Models

These are 30 procedural volumetric sphere with different effects.

It took a long time of experimentation and "accidents" to create these spheres and i hope you fellow blender users can create some cool still or animations with it.  

On most of the sphere the procedural texture can be animated in different ways to make the sphere suitable for many fantasy/sci fi scenes or animations. 

All the shaders are in different blend files. 

Update 07.08.2017: Added three more volumetric shaders. 

Update 30.10.2018: Added two bonus video tutorial course with two  awesome projects as shown in the  introduction video below:

Make sure you download the latest 2.79 blender version from the official website before starting the video tutorial course. 

25 awesome volumetric sphere. 

you can find more information on the attached documentation. 

Show in the comments what creative things you did with it :)


I try to add the shader to suzanne and it does not look the same, why?

Since these shaders where created with the gradient node on sphere settings, using these shaders on any objects other then sphere will not result in the falloff adjusting to a different object. 

Previous version of blender show different effects, why?

Indeed blender versions below 2.78 tend to process the shader nodes differently. Therefore it is advised to use the latest stable version.

    absolutely incredible job, it was easy putting down $15 for this work of art, and I'm a real stickler for spending money online XD Deconstructing this beautiful masterpiece you've created will give me all I'll need to know as I learn volumetrics. I'm challenged with making a collapsing neutron star for an animation at the Urantia Association and I've never worked with volumetrics before; my knowledge is built on my work for Operation: Black Mesa modelling and mapping and so your work will be an invaluable resource.
