O.K, My second attempt at space art.
Just uploaded a single image, but If it becomes popular enough I might upload a wallpack.

I made everything on the art work- except for A faint texture I used on the big planet. I cant remember whose it is; if you recognize it tell me and I will credit the artist.

Took me about 6 hrs and around 300 layers. I actually ended up using 3 PSD's, one for the origional Idea, one for final re-touching and one to experiment with.

I found It goes really well with vista themes, or other moderate darknesses themes.

Anyway, I hope you like it, just remember that I'm not a space artist so go easy if you comment.

Any favs or comments are much appreciated.

It was a while ago, so I don't remember everything, but I basically spent a fare bit of time on the star field, then drew a black circle of the planet, gave it a hardly visible texture, added some layer styles then changed the image until I was happy. Looking back I would have made it a lot lest contrasted though...

Wow, this looks very good :) However, the big planet looks too flat :)

Yeah, The lighting on the big planet doesn't make much sense. I added the nebula in the later stages and couldn't be bothered going back to change all the lighting layers.
