Rocket Emoji Rendered

Fly me to the moon.

To get further along my journey into Blender I decided to recreate the infamous rocket emoji from our favorite iProducts.  This project was pretty fun as I had a lot of "How the heck do I do that?!?" questions that needed searching online. Luckily it seems like every Blender user has a tutorial on how they accomplished certain tasks.

The Final Render

The flame exhaust is actually animated using the wave modifier and an emission shader.
