    LOVED watching my work come together. Another fantastic tutorial. You're going to create a whole wave of self-taught graphic design entrepreneurs.

    Great tutorial!

    To create an Earth-like planet, I took a picture of a wooden desk, coloured it blue, then added the rust texture as an overlay.

    I love your videos, especially the double exposure one! Curious what hardware you use, also wondering if you design for a living?

    is there a way to create space nebula without using stock photos but just by using photoshop things like render clouds, brushes, etc?

    Its so refreshing to be able to watch tutorials that are quick, concise and to the point. Please don't change your approach, it stands you head and shoulders above other photoshop tutorials as some of us don't want to sit here for hours listening to someone drone on about unnecessary bs. Thanks for your help man, couldn't ask for more x
