exploding planet

I know there are like 2 others tutorials about how to do a exploding planet but i thought this one was quite different and is made in a very different way.

This is my first tutorial :)

Plugins needed: Fire!, noise, zoom blur and hue/saturation

1. Fill canvas with black

2. Add noise – settings: 100, 20 , 0.40

1

3. New layer

4. Shift + ellipse tool, make a circle as big as a tennis ball.

2

5. Use the paint brush (colour – green) make islands (the islands are for the rocks that are being thrown away)

3

6. Deselect

7. Zoom blur (88)

8. Fire! settings to your likings or you can do 951,0.67 and 27

4

9. New layer

10. Make the planet layer visible (but not selected) paint inside of the planet outline the rocks keeping a bit away from actually touching them.

5

11. Zoom blur (100 then repeat so it's 200)

12. Fire! (at the same settings when you made the rocks)

13. Hue/saturation make it any colour (blue is what I choose) and play about with the saturation and the lightness

14. Zoom blur (about 20)

15. Make all layers visible and move the exploding planet to a location in which you are satisfied with

Finished product - 6

If you found settings which make the planet look really good or the explosion really good please post them :D

It has a cool effect, but I like the other tut better. (No offense)

i dont mind, but could you give a contructive critisism - this could of been this colour, this could of been lighter also im quite new to paint.net so you cant expect some amazing stuff from me.

It is a nice tutorial , but I like the old one more. I will try this out, and give you my result.

Edit: I will tell you this, it needs to have more shell around it, if you know what I mean. It just looks like an explosion with some rocks around it. As on the other one, it looks like a planet about to corrupt. However, this one is nice because it is 100% Paint.NET, so I give you points for that.

Yes. The "rules" that were being violated are called intellectual property laws.

Basically, we plugin authors don't like it when other people steal our stuff and give it away without our permission.

So the if a website didnt get your permission and if someone gave a link to that website you will take the link away.

I think that theres nothing wrong with that it makes it easier for every1 to download plugins.

I'd say you should just copy their idea of plugin packs.
