Btw, How do you make those planets in PS?

I can't even begin to describe how absoleutely amazing I think this is, the color usage is gorgeous, and I almost can't beleive you can make these image with the same photoshop tools I use XD

It's looks like it could be photo-realistic, or 3d generated.

really, 5 thumbs up! *grew three arms just for this*
