Learning Photoshop: Day 22 – Gaseous Planets

For today’s tutorial, I have decided to return to space.  I am using gradients and filters to create a gas giant.  Filters are – spherize, liquefy, Gaussian blur.  Please note, the tutorial uses an earlier version of Photoshop that has a tool called turbulence in the liquefy filter.  Don’t panic, you can get decent results without it.  Just use the twirl, bloat, and standard smeary tools, resizing as desired, and you’ll be fine.  Also, just for the hell of it and because the tutorial told me to, a lens flare was tossed in.

My results?

The star field in the back is pretty basic, but you can use earlier tutorials to add some nebulas, or even toss in rings around the planet.
