  1. Total noob here. Im having 2 big issues.
    1 – Once I create the star brush, the brush refuses to go back to normal when I try to draw the light in the background, for example.
    2 – After I hold ALT and select the thumbnail of the first planet, the program wont let me do anything outside of the selected area, like its not leting me deselect it. I have to keep creating and moving other layers to be able to do stuff.
    Anyone have tips on solving this?

  2. ok, this isnt working, whe i first added the overlay layer, it turned my planet red now when i paint over it to bring out the texture effect, it omly affects the atmosphere…and things were going so well

  3. somethings wrong, I'm doing everything in the video but the inner glow isn't showing up, I hid every thing to see what was wrong and the inner glow is just a transparent pin-thin line.

  4. Im having a problem where when i add the outer glow effect the actual glow has a gap between the planet and the glow so you can see a black line between. any fixes?

  5. great tut .. love the work n apprecıate yr tıme very much..yes ı accomplıshed the project looks great took me a whıle ..ı would really love ıt ıf u could be bıt precıse on when to eg start new layer ect pls consıder those who admıre yr wk n want the fantastıc results we r only mere mortals

  6. 3:37 what where? what? Did u prepare something that we need to se outside a tutorial? i have no clue how did u bring the texture in to ps , man if u dooing tutorial do the project from A to Z in the video ….

  7. To start with a BACKGROUND, I just created a new 11 x 17 on white, and then right clicked over on it in the layer box and clicked "layer from background." I can't figure out how you got the color box in the layers panel!
    Thanks for your time Howard. Best to you.
