Starry Sky Tutorial by Remy-cake Starry Sky Tutorial by Remy-cake
My first tutorial, yaaaay!

I worked with a 500x300 image the whole time for the sky, hahaa. Sorry it's a big picture.

Um. I assumed you knew how to switch brushes and make new layers, since... Uh.. You wouldn't need a tutorial like this if you never used photoshop before. e_e;

I used Photoshop CS3, but it should work with most versions...

This would work for backgrounds, or shots of space, or... Whatever. You could pretty much stop after rendering the clouds, the rest just makes it pretty. XD


If you make a picture using my tutorial, link me in a comment, I want to seeee!

and also a tutorial for Gimp that I based off of this...
I did it cause I know the steps were different so I felt like being nice to others but still...

I kind of maybe stole your colour scheme for it ^^;
so... sorry but I hope you don't mind?

But thanks, also :)

Don't mind if I favorite this, as I need lots of help concerning backgrounds, and the sky is no exception. Awesome, by the way.

Once you get the hang of it you can do more with photoshop :D I have SC5 Extended so I could also do 3D things xD I personally think that photoshop is more mouse user freindly (I LOVE THE PEN TOOL!!!!) :3 I recomend looking at shit loads of tutorials (I had to do that, there are so many buttons!)and if you really want I could e-mail you the torrent download I used so you can get the full version.....shhhh it's secret
