A tutorial to create a beautiful planet with atmosphere and shadow, using only one texture, four layers and NO LAYER EFFECTS in Photoshop.

I don't know if it fits the section, but my approach in getting to create maps is top-down - planet first :)

My first tutorial so be gentle.

In the future I will put in a tutorial of a realistic top-down landscape using Terragen.

I will not embed the image since it's kinda.. huge...

Excellent tut, Rhadiel! I love the way you've simplified the process. I particularly like how you created the shadow. Simple but very effective (the best combo).

Thank you all for the kind remarks :)
P.S. excuse the English, it's not my native language.
