Well well :) for some time now, alot of people have asked me to do a tutorial on how to create textures for planetary use. Well, in this tutorial i show some pretty fast, easy and good ways to create textures wich you can use for your planets. I show how to easily implement water into your texture and im pretty sure that by the end of this tutorial, you guys will be creating smashing textures yourself :D

As you can see i've zipped some files here. Its the highres version of the tutorial itself, and two jpeg images and a fractal image. Please use these if you want to achieve the same result as i've shown in the tutorial.

Damn this took some time. I was originally planning to make a spacepicture yesterday, but i ended up working on this one :) and it took me around 5 - 6 hours i think.

I hope it'll be of use to you guys/girls. And please, if you guys have any questions, just ask :lol:
