You're using the elliptical selection tool, right? Using that tool, just click where it says, and hold Ctrl+Shift and drag in the direction of the arrow.

Great tut!! I'm a newb with gimp but i think my result is pretty nice :l: I've added a layer for the lava (made with the base-script), and a blurred gradient to make it look like a star. Oh, and a flame too!

Great tutorial! Here is my result.

I followed the instrctions exactly (had to change the bump map settings a bit to remove ugly dark spots) but it's not exactly like the example. I still like it though.

Edit: Whoops, the sun is in the wrong place :s:

I find that taking a Alpha to Selection, making a new layer, and running a Linear FG to Transparent with FG set to black is easier to shade the planet with.

Wusanderz: that's true, and it works when the planet is lit directly from the side, but it can't produce the nice crescent-shaped shading that happens when the sun is slightly behind the planet.

Didn't quite get the light part(right after shadow), can you explain more detailed?? I will be posting a result soon because i found a way around :P
But still would be nice to really see what i need to do.

(we want our image to be "gimped", not "photoshopped"; the difference being one can't tell when an image has been properly gimped :) ).

Nice tut but I'm trying to make a wallpaper and the thing is, when I do map to object the sphere isn't a perfect circle shape? I saw some other results from people that had a rectangle shape but the planet was still a circle shape.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy busy busy.

Unitc:
When doing "Map to Sphere" what matters is that the layer you are working on is square. The image can be as distorted as you want. To make your layer square, use the box select tool and constrain it to a 1:1 aspect ratio. Select an area (a square area, mind you) and do Layer -> Crop to Selection.

nick_n_ii:
You'll need the elliptical select tool. Let me know if you have any more problems.

Thanks for the tutorial! I think this one came out ok. I made two surface layers. One that looks like water, and one below it that looks like land. I erased parts of the water layer with the galaxy brush which exposed the land surface layer. I also only applied the bump map to the land surface layer.
