I've been using these things as my wallpapers so often, I figured I'd give one a shot... I took a look at Greg Martin's tutorials as well as a few others and went from there. I'm not really satisfied by a lot of it, but it's a hell of a lot better than I expected from a first attempt. :)

I changed my mind and went and fixed the moon... I do think it looks better.

The old one is still at [link] for comparison.

Thanks. :)

A lot of people have commented on cracks being to big, and in hindsight, I agree. I think if the moon was signifigantly smaller, it would be better; the gas giant would look bigger, and the cracks would be less noticeable. Not gonna go back and change it at this point though. :P

I like it:-) Very good for a first shot! Here is my first also [link] If I may say.. the planets look kinda unrealistic I think.. kinda toy-like... I don't know.. It just dont feel like huge plante.. The texture on the small one is not fir.. the dark holes are just too huge.. you can't find something like that in real space.. :-) its just what I think... But the starfield looks absolutely amazing!! You did a very good job on it:-) I want to try to make some of the Linse flare stars in my next picture... You shuld try too.. they look amazing!:-)
