Close Up Planet Walkthrough by Baro Close Up Planet Walkthrough by Baro
Okay then, as requested by a few, here's a walkthrough on how i created the close up planet from my pic "Stagelight" [link] .

It is a psd file in a .rar archive. you will need WinRar to unzip it.
the file itself contains a walkthrough of the creation of the planet in 9 steps, plus the scaled down texture + explanations.

I chose to do it in .psd cause you will more easily see what has changed when blending layers in and out, rather than just switching through pictures.

have fun :).

Thanks for the guide, but the first step I found confusing. I would assume after you do the "perspective" move you just crop the shape into a triangle instead of a trapezoid so it looks like a close up planet, the next step I did use was select the trinagled texture and hit "Shear" and played with it a little to make it a bit more like a semi-close up sphere.
Overall good guide, but the first step was a bit confusing.

No i simply rotated the layer and pushed it into a corner to conceil the corners that give it away as an essentially square and not a round shape.

This is a great tutorial. I had one question: Can you go into more detail about how to give the planet a shadow with the gradient tool? I'm not sure what I should be doing after I select the gradient tool.

Definately keep posting this stuff. I find walkthroughs brilliant. A good way to see how a good picture progressed from beginning to end, and perhaps help learn one or two new techniques, as this one taught me. :D

I'm confused with the 'throw shadow' part.

First of all, how do you select only the white? Then do you use the 'drop shadow' option? Or am I missing something here? :D
Reply
:iconbaro:
Baro Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2008
you can select a color by going to select->color range. copy that selection to a new layer and give that layer a drop shadow effect.

hope it helps :)

The psd file doesn't work.
It opens up in Preview ( a mac application to view photos ) and not photoshop.

then just ctrl+click the file and select open with photoshop...

Okay i finally checked my email and looked at it, but if your using the most basic photoshop program ever, (photoshop cs), since you don't have the multiply negatively blending option, what should you do when making the first atmosphere (inner + outer glow)
Reply
:iconbaro:
Baro Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2008
you do have the multiply negatively option, yet it's called different.
as i use the german photoshop i had to translate the terms, so i'm
not sure what the english one is...

I looked it up on google and it seems to be the blending mode "screen"
that you are looking for.

Meanwhile, i do make a point of using the right terms, but that walkthrough
was done pretty hasty. probably a bit too much so...
