Playing a bit with space backgrounds, photoshopping and composition. I feel like it was harder than actually assembling that behemoth... and by no means I am satisfied by the result.
Speaking of which - how to make a spherized texture which is not blurred in the middle? The basic PS filter does that and the only thing I can think of is starting with REALLY HUGE texture (like, 5k x 5k) and then scaling down. But this way I can do only a little planet like the orange one. How to make one which would be about 5x bigger?
