Even though I don't think I'll be making spacescapes, I found this tutorial quite interesting, since I really am a photoshop noob, and I need to learn more about brush settings and layer tricks... I might just use this for skies, though ~ If I do, I'll let you know
Absolutely splendid, i think this tutorial should help alot of people. It is in depth, has an array of nifty tips & tricks, & easily shows the work process of an image with an excellent outcome. Also you described things fantastically, so everybody should be able to understand it perfectly. & you document everything from highlights to shadows, to blending & texturing, so i really do think this will help people even more than just 'recreating your work', it isnt 'cookie-cutter' yet its still very descriptive, the perfect tutorial/walkthrough. Excellent work!
Oh &, wow, thanks for including me in the cool artists you know section.
