Creating 3D looking solar system

Recommended Posts

Hello people,


I am working on a project and it would be nice to have a 3D looking solar system. And I want to have something similar like int the game SW: Empire At War


Do you have a idea how I could do something similar ? On the picture we have a galaxy in the background and also the lines help to create this 3D/deep effect.

We have great planet tutorials here. 

I start with a dark image of cosmos with few dozen stars and it is already looks like 2D, a wall of stars...


Maybe the is a perspective formula how to put the stars to create deepness. 

Sorry my English is not so good.

Maybe you guys have some ideas?


Best wishes,

Here's a couple of tutorials to get you started:



I prefer the second one, though it is worth combining the two to give a little extra depth to the image.
