    Question Star Map in Photoshop Tut?

    Ok,

    I am looking for a Tutorial on how to make Star/Galaxy Maps in Photo-shop CS5.

    Primarily

    ones that look like this

    HomeWorld Star Map

    Star Trek Galaxy Map

    If some one could point me in the Right direction it would save me allot of Time going in the Wrong Direction...

    Thanks,

    Ben

    I think that would work better with Inkscape or Illustrator. You could do it in Photoshop with some layer-styles though. A tip on the regions: for each region, create a layer as a colored mass on that layer (1 layer for each region). Then set the layer transparency to something like 70% and add in a "stroke" layer style a few pixels wide of the same or a complementary color.
