Making Planets with GIMP - ONE

Making Planets with Gimp

There's a rather good filter that turns flat objects into a SPHERE


but you have to give it  something to work on!

I used a textured paint brushs and then added CHROME

oops once and rough but  applying CHROME might I lost my transparent Background !

So a bit of editing with the eraser and


WE have the beginnings of something

A bit more shadow and tonal contrast added using smudge and eraser and other tools and brushes that darken and lighten

Part Two the whole planet and some color !
