Planetary Rings Tutorial



This one is way overdue. I got the desire to write one when I saw the tutorial telling people to use the spiral filter. Good effort, but that's wrong like a cubed planet. Rings are not spirals like that. Yes, I know that Cassini found a spiral of dust around Saturn's rings, but it looks nothing like the spiral tool in Photoshop!

But enough about that. Here's an alternative and what i've been using when making them in Photoshop.

As usual, let me know if you're having any problems at all. Also, if you do make rings and are satisfied, tell me about what your approach. We can all learn quite a bit here :)
