Are animated 'objects' acceptable?


Yes!  I think animated images in any of the competitions are allowed :)

1. Select your planet.

2. Add new Layer.

3. Effects > Render > Random Shape Fill (from this pack). Shape = Circles, Number and Size = up to you, Fill Color = Primary, Outline Color = None.

4. Effect > Distort > Dents (Refraction about 2-3) to slightly change their shape.

5. Gaussian Blur = 2.

6. Effects > Object > Bevel Object (Depth 2-3, uncheck "Keep original image").

7. Adjustments > Invert colors.


You can adjust their opacity (Layers properties menu) and add some form (Effects > Distort > Bulge 10-20) if necessary.

Thanks @Vagabondi! Good luck to you and all who are taking part in the competition. These are fun :)

WOW @Drydareelin that planet with the rings is amazing. Fantastic artistry! My rings now look like dust bunnies compared to your Bugs Bunny lol.


It took me far too long to come up with a new way of making them. The one in my old tutorial is a touch outdated, maybe I'll make a new one sometime when I've refined the technique :)
