I was just happy I made it through with something that actually resembled a working piece of art....

    *edit: this is 35% the size of the original, just an FYI for those interested...
    while photoshop would work for a whole solar system , it unfortunately doesn't for close up pictures of a planet...it's just not detailed enough.....

    Have you seen my planet-making tutorial?

    Hey, planets! I found a couple of tutorials some time ago, and I thought it was so cool, I started to create, and those were the results.

    The earth-like one has a quite lousy starfield because when I started to erase around to randomize it, didn't notice what the result would be; anyway I think it looks pretty cool

    This has been my most recent attempt at a planet scene. It's part of a project I've been working on, and its page is here: http://nhnd.thewildblue.net/wiki/Spero

    I love designing planets using Gimp. Is it possible to design a "star map" in Gimp, or other imaging program. (Example: Sun in the center and then several planets, moons, and an asteroid belt or two orbiting around that, as well as showing the orbital path of the planets and moons) Is this possible to do, and do 'well'? Thanks in advance.
