An illustration



Had an idea for a new personal project involving planets, and got a bit carried away on this tangent..

It's all done with Photoshop - the only external file I used was the texture for the planet surface, which you can see here.

The background stars and the ring around the planet were created using noise, glows and gradient contours (heavily layered).

The full resolution is 4192 x 2706 pixels and can be seen here:
