Free Photoshop Brush: Planets and Moons


I’ve been a fan of science fiction movies since I was a little kid and saw Star Wars for the first time. Because of that, I tend to do a lot of designs and wallpapers that feature space and planets. Outer space is a pretty fascinating thing to learn about and check out.

Designing planets in photoshop is a fairly straightforward process:

  1. Download a high resolution photograph of almost any interesting natural texture.
  2. Cut it into a circle.
  3. Spherize it.

To make things even easier, rather than go through all those steps any time you need a planet in your design, why not just use this free photoshop brush? Download it, install it, use it, and then leave a link to your work in the comments.

This brush looks pretty cool if you want to add some blending options to it as well – outer glow for an atmosphere effect, bevel or emboss for crazy terrain, add a gradient for a shadow, etc.

Go ahead and click the image (or here) to download the brush.

Btw, there are 16 brushes in all, named after the twelve colonies of Kobol from the Battlestar Galactica series plus a few named after the dwarf planets of our solar system: Virgon, Tauron, Scorpia, Sagittaron, Picon, Libran, Leonis, Gemenon, Caprica, Canceron, Aquaria, Aerilon plus Pluto, Haumea, Eris, and Ceres (did you even know there were 4 dwarf planets in our solar system?)

Enjoy. The truth is out there. Live long and prosper. May the Force be with you. So say we all.
