Hello and welcome into the space design wallpaper tutorial. In this tutorial we’ll use basic forms and custom brushes to create a beautiful rendering in Photoshop.

So let’s go then. Create a document; It’s actually depends on what PC do you have. I can offer 1600x1280px.

Fill it with black to grey gradient.

I really never use lighting effect filter in Photoshop but now is the time to see it.

It has a lot of settings. I do recommend you to play with all of them.

My result: you can create texture in the light too.


Make it a little bit straight.

Now for the objects space time this time.

Select make round selection. Choose light – grey as your primary color. Tap -G- to choose gradient tool: round type.


Try to start your Gradient line from one single point somewhere on 11 o’clock, over center line.

There are many ways to apply color in Photoshop. As I have my texture and planet on different layers, I can apply 2 different colors already.
And I can even apply them using layer styles:

So of course there going to be another: done with same method using different brush.


Maybe it will be easier to copy the initial planet and change its size.


As this planet stays on background do a little bit less rendering to create a feeling of depth.

Now for the text part: I really want to use text here.

Select the whole type layer, create a new layer for the paint chose texture brush and paint that text.

Give the text some “dirt” and scary look.

I never use lens flare filter too. But today is the say.

Something like this: the idea: the sun is looking from the planet.

And here we are with some adjustments.
