A small crop of a small part of the collab I'm working on with =edlo because I needed a new background and I haven't posted anything in a while.

Really good Planet !
Is it PS or are you working in a 3D Modeling program ?
I prefer working with a 3D program, it's more convenient =).

Unfortunately I just can't seem to figure out how to use 3d programs, this is just photoshop :p

I don't know very much about Cinema4D, but when you get the hang of creating bump maps and cloud maps and such, it will be very pleasant ;).

I can't get the hang of anything in those programs at all, lol. I tried blender and quit after a couple of hours.

I think C4D is very easy, all you have to do is create multiple spheres (each layer equals one sphere) and then you create textures that are self-explanatory.
Anyway, that planet looks hawt, even without 3D software ;).

That is really looking good. Atmoshperic glow is maybe a bit strong but you said it's a wip so... I'm eager to see the end-result. ;)

Very very realistic.

The color scheme is realistic but not artistic or scifi.

For a very realistic planet, it must also have a realistic glow. If you study the many images of earth by Hubble Telescope, it hardly has a glow, and if it does, a very thin faint one. For the planet to have a big glow like that, there must be alot of light reflecting from the atmosphere which would (in realistic terms) brighten the planet soo much that the texture wouldn't be visible.

Other than that, the shadow of the planet is a tad bit too light. Now, I'm going to ask you to spoil something: is the light source really bright or dim? If it's bright, the shadow should be sharper/darker, but if dimmer/lighter, the shadow should be very transitional like you have atm.

Hope it helped :)

Well I generally make the atmosphere big or not depending more on my mood. I actually got some complaints for a while because my planets didn't have outer glows :p This is still a work in progress, so by the end it might not be the way it is here, this is just what I have so far. I will take your comment into account though, especially about the light/dark contrast but its hard to sacrifice showing off a great texture :D
