This is my first piece of space art. Woohoo!
The Grass Planet (Dantooine?
) is mostly result of my experimentation with different techniques, brushes and textures. While I mostly followed Greg Martin's tutorial ( [link]
), I tried to incorporate bits and pieces from other tutorials, as well as rely on my own intuition. I primarily used textured brushes, especially for planet surface (it's brushed only). I am very pleased with final product, but I know that there is still a lot for me to learn.
Along with planet and atmosphere layers, this .psd file also contains two cloud layers, which you can transform (rotate, move etc.) to achieve different looks. Furthermore, I've included two shadow layers, one for crescent shadow (portrayed on the preview picture) and another for crescent light. This should allow you to adjust the planet to best suite the general lighting in your piece.
You can use this resource freely, no credits or anything. But, I do ask that you send me a note with the link of your deviation if you use it (so that I can see my planet in action
Since this is my first planet work, I strongly encourage you to post your comments. Thanks!
