Kitty Soules , nice "lumppy-ness" , light to dark gradation is well done.  At another time, some stars would help offset the monochromatic feel of the background.

Regardless, I like the work, keep sending in more.getsmileyCAN54UAK.gif


Goonfella  well executed moon. a9d6fd58.gif the combination with your prior earth is stunning.

 I'll have to give your technique a try.....as soon as I figure out the original tuit (No, it is not the tuit -its me pudgy fingers and small brain)


cweber54 well done on both, your "earth" shows a very fine since of color and glow-wild background too.

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

Did mine just now. Took some time to follow and yes, superb work on the texture of this. I also followed your suggestion to use Lens plugin. I guess Shape3D's a bit overrated for the planets and moons thing.

My quest through the tutorials continues. I'm almost done with Creations.

I followed Parts 1 & 2 of the tutorial. I like the rocky texture and I think it will be useful for all sorts. I got lazy and did not follow Part 3. I used Shape3D instead and a transparency gradient.

I made the starry background and cosmic clouds using the techniques on the Polished Spacescapes tutorial.




EDIT: Re-posted the image. This time the right version 😁
