Yah so, this was quite easy. I really dunno if this should go in digital or manip, but what I did was take a hi-res pic of a nice island, and turn it into a planet. :p The "Halo" is of course inspired by the game, and the actual ringed-planets "halos", just... it's not a weapon... or is it. >> Nobody knows.... lol

Anyway, it was fun doing this, and of course I still use the same starry brushes (Rabies_Star) in this piece, too. I think I'll do this more often for making habitable planets in the future, that is until I learn how to ACTUALLY make a realistic looking planet as such.

This was fun to make, and I'm not going to say it's my best because I used a REAL pic, so I kinda cheated. XD IT'S STILL PRETTY THOUGH!

Plz comment and stuffs, I'd like to hear opinions and if you could, please link me to a good realistic detailed planet type tutorial. I'd search for one myself, but I'm out of time as I'm off to go eat. >> (Of course, by the time I get comments I'd probably had already found one myself, BUT STILL HELP ME OUT FELLOW DA'ERS!) XD

Brushes are only the stars (Rabies_Star) is the file name, I know nothing more as it was a file transfer via AIM.

Thanks for your comment. :)

Sorta old picture though, I'd bet I could remake it a tad better, I'm just lazy lol. This was made with a real picture of Earth, so I don't think it's really that special. xD

lol, thanks. Although now that I look at it now, the shadow is off, and there's WAY too many stars. I hope I get the urge to redo this sometime... :P

Nice, you angled and adjusted the island perfectly. Very nice work. Though, that place has huge beaches...if not deserts if you can see 'em from here!!!
