After reading a couple tutorials online I discovered how easy it is to make a gas planet from scratch.

  • Start with a large blank canvas in Photoshop.
  • Using the built in Photoshop grass brush, turn on some brush dynamics settings including color dynamics.
  • Paint different colors using the grass brush all over the canvas.
  • Combine these layers and use the motion blur filter at %100.
  • Now use the liquify filter to smudge the paths of color to create a gas effect similar to that of Jupiter.
  • Finally, use the spherize filter to obtain a planet shape. Crop a circular area and place this layer on a star background.
