100% Paint.net Planet Tutorial

Recommended Posts

@Trinitym: The texture is nice, but the planet is transparent. Here's how you fix this: first make sure your planet is all there and not transparent at any part. Then duplicate the planet layer and go to Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and turn the lightness all the way down so you get a black circle. Then use outline object so there's none of the planet left. THEN you use the transparent gradient. If you have any questions or need me to explain it more, just ask. :)

@Servant_Of_Thor: Okay.

Ok, thanks flip. I shall give a go when I have some time later. Hopefully it will turn out better then!

Edit:- What level of transparency would you recommend for the glow stages?

I'm going to re-do this tutorial. I've found a lot of different ways to make textures, and better 3d effects.

Coming soon?

Well... no. My computer broke with my paint.net stuff on it and I won't get a new one until awhile. All I can do now is post on this crappy laptop.

Not only does this tut display how to make something graphically beautiful, it also screams the importance of layers. Thank you so much author :D

Oh and step 6-8 can be cut out using Mike Ryan's Invert Alpha plugin. (Fill circle, blur, invert alpha) Just thought I'd Let you know, thats how I did it. :D Great Job

Subject: 100% PDN Planet Tutorial v2!

here is my go ,i like it. I think it is too big :cry: to post so, there is a link.

http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad9/Terael/planetwall.jpg

just a little help for posting large images here.

when you get your photo bucket image use the directlink and folow this code.

[url=http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad9/Terael/planetwall.jpg][img=http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/ad9/Terael/th_planetwall.jpg][/url]

if you look closely in there i put a th_ before the file name with .jpg after it. What that does is makes it a clickable thumbnail to the direct image. it will look exactly like this

th_planetwall.jpg

this save storage space on your photobucket because you don't have to upload two different sizes of the same image to make a clickable thumbnail.

Awesome tutorial, your outcomes look great.

Here's what I came up with after like 10 minutes, anyone know how to soften the edges of the planet, they look really ragged and unfinished?
