I love the striations on the clouds, and also how the planet fits into the scene.

no worries. almost done my new image, just need to pull together some planets and fractals, and learn how to blend planets into a sky <_<

it doesnt even have all the more recent layer modes.. no add, no divide.. sigh.
still working on it, need time for fractals to render :P
i'll get a photo i took up though.

I like it. Any additions would only be a matter of taste so, a couple of ideas but far from critique!

Maybe include something small in comparison to get an idea of the emmenseness. Also echoing the comments about some kind of grainy randomness somewhere. Maybe even a random swirl in the gas caused by a geological feature.

Pretty nice colour, but as many said before it's too sharp on the lines and edges. It also needs some random artistic painting to give it a more natural feel.

Best wishes,

The background is top notch as usual, but the planet looks very smudge-tool-ish. I think some subtle texture, and more random variation would help make it look less cartoony.
Shading etc. looks good though, as usual.

For me it looks like more liquid than gas. Maybe you should blur it a bit or something.

Just blur a bit and add perhaps some subtle color changes on the planet? Then we're quite some near perfection. ;)

I agree with Lotay, the liquifying has many jagged or pointy parts. Try to be more subtle and wavy. Think of how wind affects clouds and how it creates wavy wispy or bulgy patterns.

Try to not use the twirl clockwise tool in Liquify but use other tools like the Turbulence and Push Left Tools. And set the pressure, density and rate low. Later on you can raise them to make larger waves.

But I love the background that nebula looks really sweet ;]

The planet, some part of it looks realistic but some part of the ripples looks.... fake? Great job with the stars.

Since my internet crapped out on me at the most innappropriate time, I had to type this twice, so listen up bro! :threaten:

The banded patterns seem too narrow and change rather sudden;y from one to another. It seems to have around 12 or so main dark bands in between the lighter ones. Whilist Jupiter has maybe 4 or 5 major ones. Gas giants spin faster at the equator too, whipping up turbulent storms and stripes nearer the equator, whilist being much more subtle in details as you get closer to the polar regions. The souther hemisphere on this is a bit like that already.
As said higher up, the best gas giants have a certain "grittyness" to them which stops them from looking too much like a polished marble (pretty as those may be) this is because a bit of roughness gives the effect of tiny storms that are too far to see properly (by "tiny" I mean Moon-sized :lol:) this effect can be acheived by having a rough texture like you'd use for a terrestrial planet overlaid on top, perhaps liquify that weakly in the same general direction as the cloud bands, desaturate it and set it to something like "overlay" or "soft/hard light" and the adjust the opacity to your liking...It's the very same technique I used on this one [link] keep in mind that it wasn't a quick job, I spent around 5 or so hours and used about 6-7 layers on that gas-giant map :phew:

The liquid application has too many sharp jagged drops, etc. Needs to be more smooth, still overall better than what I can do for gas planets.
