My tutorial on creating a cracked, exploding planet is up at Tuts+ now.
https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-create-an-exploding-planet-in-adobe-photoshop--cms-22180
This tutorial will teach you how to create a cracked and exploding planet. All super villains wish for a weapon capable of destroying a planet. We have one too: we call it Photoshop! We will start with a perfectly good planet and smash it like an egg! Or at least an egg that is floating in space and has an explosion of energy within it. | Difficulty: Intermediate; Length: Short; Tags: Photo Manipulation, Adobe Photoshop, Futuristic, Sci-Fi

Story
Introduction

According to legends, in each generation a designer will rise whose inspiration and vision will be unparalleled by ordinary mortals. An artist of such renowned skill and talent that everyone will call him as the GifMaker! (we presume that title lost something in the translation)

That legend, as far anybody can tell, still waits to be fulfilled. But until you find that guy, you’ve got me. I’m just your friendly neighborhood Graphics Geek! I am ever willing to help you with all your graphic needs as long as I can crack a lame joke while I’m at it.

I have been working as an all around graphics geek or “Visual Information Specialist” for the past 13 years around Washington DC Metro area. With my career getting across almost every aspect of the design industry, I have worked from web design, to 3d animation, to logo design, to photo retouching.

I have acquired substantial skills with software like Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop, and Flash along the way and, recently, I found out that imparting these skills is something that I enjoy!

I’ve just recently passed the ACE exam, which makes me an official Adobe Certified Expert!
