Dunno what to say...

I had a some time off from my other stuff and decided to make a planet icon.. Mostly with the thought that it could be used as some kind of upgradeable planet in Sci-Fi maps or similar. :hohum:

The icon is made completely from scratch, although I used lllLSDlll's Icon layer to create the borders.

Should someone ask for proof of creation I do have the entire PSD file with all layers used (and of course in a larger size :wink:).

Enjoy it

Considering if I should upload my other free time icons, but thats for another time.

EDIT: Updated how the icon appears.. More shading and tried to make the effects on the picture appear better on the small version.

Added a asteroid ring around it - As per suggestion.

    It looks good. I think it could be improved, though. Hard to say how, but maybe a bit more shading is needed. Btw, what is it ment to represent? :)

    A sky covered planet... An icy planet.. No idea.

    I imagined that some could thing of it as a planet seconds before a big beam of light hits it (You gotta think creative for that one).

    Others might just think of it as a random planet in space..

    Happy you both like it though - Makes it more likely that I'll upload my others some day.

    Looks good but the shape is a bit lacking, or how the shading doesn't really make it looks rounded. Re-do the shading too make it looks 3-Dish and add more detail and maybe some stars in the backround and you will have yourself a great planet.

    Actually it has all that - And the 3D appears nice. But it is only on the large one... You can't see them on the small version :cry:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Try looking at it for some time and it will get more and more 3D

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    WOW! I spent my 2000th post here?! Damn

    Okay... I would advice that you gave that comment in another manner.

    At any rate, thanks for noticing the PAS - Updated (can't see it on the pictures though). ATC is fine.. no black border behind it is needed.

    Thanka AMP :wink:

    Both due to the size - But I might consider making the shade larger... (as said fine on the larger version)

    Thanks, and yea I also wish they could be more clearly defined in the small version:bored:

    Very useful! Although I don't have a Neptune planet atm. Imo so many versions like PASBTN and upgardes are needless.
