If you have an AMD GPU and your Blender renders using Cycles have lines in them than this short video I created will help you a lot! Sorry for the background noise I only discovered how to remove that after it was already uploaded!
This is a render of the Earth on the dark side. It might not be accurate but I thought it was cool to make it like this. I have Andrew Price from BlenderGuru to thank for the tutorial he made so I can improve my creation of planets. You can use this for commercial purposes and order prints if you like from my DeviantArt account.
