Planet Texture Tutorial by Mr-Frenzy Planet Texture Tutorial by Mr-Frenzy
Well well :) for some time now, alot of people have asked me to do a tutorial on how to create textures for planetary use. Well, in this tutorial i show some pretty fast, easy and good ways to create textures wich you can use for your planets. I show how to easily implement water into your texture and im pretty sure that by the end of this tutorial, you guys will be creating smashing textures yourself :D

As you can see i've zipped some files here. Its the highres version of the tutorial itself, and two jpeg images and a fractal image. Please use these if you want to achieve the same result as i've shown in the tutorial.

Damn this took some time. I was originally planning to make a spacepicture yesterday, but i ended up working on this one :) and it took me around 5 - 6 hours i think.

I hope it'll be of use to you guys/girls. And please, if you guys have any questions, just ask :lol:

Frenz

Okay, so, I'm trying to use this tutorial with elements 3.0, and I can't figure out how to create a layer mask. I went pawing through help, and I know they exist, but I can't create them. Any tips or ideas?
Thanks. ^_^

I guess I still find it refreshing that artists of your caliber
will take the time to post a tut of your talents and knowledge.
Being a musician I haven`t got a clue what you are talking
about. But I have admired your art, your mind`s eye and
your vision of that "inexplicable" something that makes me
and others say, "oh, yea!" Because of you and G Martin and
others this new dimension art world should so be grateful.
Thanks, buddy

That looks pretty nice dude. I used that tech before. Now I'm more into download NASA satelite photos and manipulate them =). Try it if u haven't, quite fun actually and the end result is amazing sometimes.

It's good to see people share knowledge. I'm thiking of making another tutorial myself. Don't know what yet because all things I can do pple already have turorials who show a better way hehe.

Cheers and grats for a job well done :clap:

thats a def' dif' way of doin it for me...might have to give it a try(but Im not much into pure photoshop painting of a planet). I pant an intire planet thats seemless, then make shine maps, bump maps, and etc, for 3ds max and make it 3d(seemless so I can do a movie with them orbiting if I want)

its nice to see that you do go through some hassle of makin your planets

for awhile now I've been finding out most people just use satalite images for there planets, which I dont see much fun into the "creating" part of it all

so very nice Mr-Frenzy :D
