How to setup material with a texture on the sphere which will look like this


I have draw in Paint straight line but I don't know how to bend it spirally around the sphere with material nodes. Also, I don't know how to make transparent background with this line.

    $\begingroup$ I don't think there is any simple way to do it with this texture. But there is a blender addon that makes spirals. See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/5755/…, but change the spiral type in the operator panel $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you but I don't want the mesh. I want to make spiral texture on the sphere. I thought there is procedural way with the line. Is it possible to bake mesh spiral onto sphere as a texture? $\endgroup$
