Today we’re going to have some fun in Adobe Photoshop creating a cool sci-fi space scene with planets, moons, nebulas and colourful cosmic space dust. We’ll start by making a vast black universe full of tiny stars, then begin building up the scene with a large alien planet and its moon. To give the scene a cool sci-fi vibe, we’ll add a vibrant nebula then finish it off with some intense lighting effects.
