Great tutorial mate. Definetly going to be using this tutorial as a reference from now on. Any ideas how to do a firey dead earth type of landscape? Is it similar to taking a map of the sun and doing the same process? Cheers
At step 7, when I deselect the Land Shapes and the Land Texture blurred, it just shows the land shapes. I've tried the step multiple times, but it continues to stay on the land shapes. I think it may have to do with when I auto-blended the layers to create the texture, they didn't become a single layer, they stayed separate.
Thank you so much for this tutorial! It's super easy to understand, and you shared the resources. Too bad I have photoshop elements 8 and so I don't have the "resterize-3d" T-T But I can manage with the rest.
thank you for your comment... I am glad it is easy to understand. If you don't have the 3D-option, you can use the "spherize filter" - I'm pretty sure it will work with that filter, too. First create a nice circle with the elliptical marquee tool (if you hold the SHIFT-key while you drag the mouse, it will create a perfect circle for you) then go to "Filter>Distort>Spherize" to give it a 3D effect... then repeat it... I used to use the spherize filter and I usually set the amount to 100% I hope I could help you.
