Tutorial: Craters by Baro Tutorial: Craters by Baro
Edit: Upon a few requests changed from .rar to .zip.

A Tutorial on how to create Craters for Spaceart in Photoshop and how to apply them to a planet.

I tried to make it as comprehensible as possible. It isn't easy writing tutorials and i know that they can be a pain in the royal butt if you get to a point you don't understand. So if you have questions just contact me and i'll be glad to help. I also recommend that you try an touch up your own craters a little more once you have applied them to your planet (which is where this tutorial ends). I recommend adding some custom shadows inside the craters and painting over places you don't think turned out that well. I would have liked to write something on that aswell, but then this tutorial would have ended up with far too many steps and pages.


File: PDF (Packed in *.rar File)
Size: 1.15 MB
Pages: 8 (includes many pictures)

7 Step Tutorial + Annotations

You will need WinRar and the Adobe Reader to view this tutorial


I'm also planning on making this a video tutorial for even better comprehension, but the screen recorders i've found so far don't have a satisfactory quality or filesize, so if you know a good program for that please share :). I'm calculating about 12-15 minutes for the whole video...


Feel free to show me any results :)

I hope this is of use.

Could you please provide a printable version of your tutorial? :typerhappy:

One that doesnt overload my printer cartridge :frustrated:

One with a plain white background, perhaps :please:

I collect nice tutorials "physically" in a folder ( oldschool, i know ) and your crater tut is going right into my space art section :clap:
