Exploding planets


Recommended Posts

The one where you were playing around looks pretty neat to me. I like it! :)

Thx for the amazing tutorial..... I wanted to put in a face with it so that the face is kinda exploding out of the planet as well. I think it turned out pretty nice:


What do you guys think?


I kept messing with it and I noticed that using Effects --> Sharpen gives it a slightly better look. Kind of a better glow and, well, a sharper look.

Also, I wanted to see what it would look like as an ink sketch and I really liked the result:


Kind of has that comic book look don't ya think?

Well I tried a bit with colors and different effects.

Here are my results:

This was my first try and I added some colors.


This doesnt look like an planet due to the mud, but because of the effect it still looks nice somehow.


Here I played a bit around with colors and other effects and tried to get lava. (click on the picture for bigger size)


Here I got some lava and gas pouring out. I did that with several layers and cloud effect(click on the picture for bigger size)

Oh I like that a lot, Atze Peng.

I did something similar but my laptop crashed and I lost it....silly me for not saving! :lol:

Thx but the Rays are improveable. I may will try it again these days. Already got some ideas, to bad the Dent-plugin makes them look less realistic, but the turning of the rays make it look better than without.

Edit: I've tried some stuff, here is the outcome (still improveable):

Any Ideas to improve the Rays? Did it with 2-3 Zoom blured layers and different settings in Dent's plugin and an Cloudlayer with settings 'Overlay'

GREAT tutorial. I just started using Paint.NET yesterday, and the exploding planet was the first thing i've made. Took me a while to firgure out what to do, but I think they came out alright. Still need to practice though :)
