(Edit- Spelling errors, I hope ;))

(Edit2-) When brushing a nebula you can variate numbers of layres you work on. In the end you can play aroudn with different blending modes for effects besides the brushing, a good starter tip to get going)

I'v received tons and tons of notes and comments/mail regarding me making a nebula tutorial and a planet tutorial. Well, here's one of them. A detailed and very in depth planet tutorial WILL Come, when? I can't say I'm sorry but further on Yes.

All I can say here is thank You for the support and I hope by this tutorial I can give something back to you all out there who so desperatly wanted for me to make this :).

Thank you, enjoy!

- Rob

I am sorry to say but I cannot use this efficiently. I cannot understand the message that you are trying to get across. It is too vague.

Nice one:) I've got tired of people that tell us just to throw in some clouds and use a gradient over them! By the way, too much reading looses readers only when there is nothing interesting or nice, and here I can say it's just awesome!:clap::clap:

Ack, been doing this with a wonky mouse for the past couple hours. Surprisingly since my mouse is spoilt and makes random jerking motions with the cursor, it actually helps make realistic lightning. ^^

My only recommendation, save up for a wacom. If you're serious about doing digital design there's no other tool to use. Mice works only thus far, a wacom will take you in and beyond!

I had a Wacom Intuos, but it broke. Don't even ask. It involved a lot of alcohol and a bad case of wrong place and wrong time. So for now I'm using my mouse until I can afford another tablet.

Alcohol and tablets usually ends up in very interesting creations

Looks awesome! Since I have no photoshop and I'm a noob in digital art, I will try this with real paint. I'm not sure how it will work out, but it's worth trying I think ^^

Hey,
Love the outcome; I also love all of your other tutorials; you write them very differently than most - and I'm not referring to the spelling [you may create whole new words, but in the end, it all makes sense - except for this one bit..........that I'm writing to you about].
The image you have under step 2 [with the four colour swatches on the left'....."I've chosen to go with the lookof a gradient and make this a rather full-image nebula-isch piece."..................
I know it's the base for the actual work; but that's the bit I can't seem to create [it's probably quite simple but I just don't get it].
Could you please enlighten me?....................
Thanks for all your generous sharing............................................

You basically need to create a soft "gradient looking" base to continue brushing at. Everything should be warm 'n soft and don't have hard edges etc, those we'd like to brush out in a later state to get detail and depth. Hopefully this gives you something, was a long time ago it was written :).

Thanks,
I managed to work it out and basically copied your piece [roughly].
I just thought that you used the gradient tool to achieve the base but realised what you meant later [when I thought to myself, "Stuff it, I'll just paint the base." - which is pretty much what you did anyway].
Thanks for responding.
I'm not yet up to the uploading stage - the work isn't good enough for that [although there are many at DA who aren't so fussy and upload anything].
I'm currently playing with Terragen 2; lots of space potential there.
Cheers
Erwin

I have been making nebulas and star spaces but this looks very refreshing and quick to make nebulae you envision in your head.
