    Post Hey... I made a planet!

    I just finished this, my first full color piece of artwork in PS, though it was done thru a tutorial in Advanced Photoshop Mag, I was rather proud that it looks like I can actually draw... Anyway... sorry its not a map guys... but I had to share.. even though it pales in comparison to the actual tutorial one the artist did... 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...

    I've done loads of planets too. Here's one I did in PS from scatch. I now have the flaming pear stuff and generally just use that.

    Yours looks fantastic.

    Here are some of the space things I've done from scratch in Gimp. A couple include a Star Wars model rendered in Blender though... LINK.

    This ought to be in the reference section I guess but... This :-

    http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html

    is the popular "Astro Image of the Day" which is a large selection of the best of NASA's images including lots of planets, nebula etc. All NASA pics (without peoples faces) are deemed free to use.

    A few matted clips of these can make some 'stellar' space scenes.

    Edit -- Actually, todays (Mar 18 200 is a bit of a doozy !

    I'm developing a LARP and was wondering what he chances are that I can use that picture in the main picture for the webpage? Also, which programs did use to make it?
