PostSubject: How to make a realistic looking planet   Sun Nov 08, 2009 4:37 am

In this tutorial I'll show you how to make a realistic looking planet like this using photoshop:

At first, we wanna make a new document. I'll take 1000x1000 (MUST BE A SQUARE) (dun look at the pic, I did it wrong )

Then we'll make 2 layers and fill one with a blue color (#101b87), and the second one with a brown color (#7a3712).

Add a layer mask to the second one and use Filter>Render>Cloud effect about 10-15 times. After that press Ctrl+L to go to the levels and move both arrows together that it looks like in the picture.

Since water is brighter next to the land we wanna add an outer glow to the 2nd layer. Take these settings and the color i used is "#6fb8fb"

Now we come to a quite difficult part. We wanna make it look realistic. TO do that, download this.

Place one of those pics in your picture and create a clipping mask (right click on your layer > Create Clipping Mask. Now erase with a big soft brush (i used 200px) the edges to make it look smooth.

Cover your whole picture with mountain and ground pictures, till there is nothing brown any more.

To make the water we're going to load water pictures between the blue and the brown layers, and erase the parts you don't like:

The next step will be merging all layers. Now go to Filter > Distort > Spherize and amount 100.
Now cut it out. Mine looks a bit streched cause I didn't make a square in begin =/

Now, to make it a wallpaper, create a new document (I pick 1920x1080) and paste in your planet.
The background will be a gradient of levels of grey. Set the blend mode of your Planet to Luminosity.

Now take an eraser of about 900px soft brush and erase a part of your planet.

Now create a new layer over your planet and fill it black. Use Filter > Render > Lens Flare and the settings like in the picture. Set it to lighter color and move it where you want.

Now go to Color Balance and use these settings: (you also can change them if you wish to.)

Finish !!!

Hope you enjoyed this and it helped you.
