I went through a phase where I was really into space art. As always I have a kinda "need to be able to do it" drive when I get into something. It's basically how I've learned everything I know. This is one of the final space scenes I did, it's all photoshop. The planet was created via many layers of work, water, land, clouds, etc all have some sort of depth which I was really proud of. By this point I was also pretty decent with brushwork so I was happy with that as well. The moon I actually cheated on, I had a picture of a rock wall that I used to texture the land and give it some depth of it's own.
