Planet, first test by barbexy Planet, first test by barbexy
Made with The Gimp.

I followed this tutorial: mygimptutorial.com/the-ultimat… , and made my first planet. I think it looks pretty cool. Next I'm going to learn to make starfields and nebulas.

Thanks! :shy: 
It's not difficult, you could do it too. The Gimp is free software and the tutorial explains everything.

Yes, I have the Gimp, I've just never really got the hang of it. Especially layers. Layers suck.

nnununu, Layers are the awesome! Layers are the bare minimum for any graphics program! Layers were the reason I bought Paintshop Pro 4 in, fuck, 1996, 1997??

Na you didn't, you clearly took this off google silly goose Crazy/Silly Smiley Emoticon . . . .

That is really neat looking, almost like the ones you see when searching the net, you know, the ones that are websites like Space.com. Very impressive, and thank you for sharing this and the tutorial. I got to give it a shot as well, and try it in Photoshop as well, this would make planet textures much easier too.

Thanks :tighthug:

I did it myself, big pinky swear! :funnydance: 

check it out, look at all those layers: sta.sh/02bnb82oc28f

It took a while but the result is really good. I'm having less success with nebulas, my pictures don't look anything like the results in the tutorials.

Thanks!
That tutorial is really thorough, I actually understood how everything was supposed to work. And simple things like creating a texture can make such a difference in the resulting picture.

Thanks! Right now I'm trying to make a nebula and starfields. Not quite happy with it yet.

That takes a lot of practice and playing around with it to get it to look right. You'll get it though. :)
