Gas Giant resource pack by priteeboy Gas Giant resource pack by priteeboy
Gas Giants are exceptionally large planets composed almost entirely of gas and liquid as opposed to the hard-surfaced terrestrial planets. They are recognizable by their distinctive banded pattern of horizontal stripes and often colourful cloud tops. This is the result of complex weather patterns often due to different cloud bands blowing in opposite directions at high speeds, and certain elements responsible for the different colours.

This is a much harder pattern to create digitally than one would think, there's much more than using the liquify tool on a gradient in Photoshop or worse still - just manipulate an image of Jupiter which will always reveal familiar features that gives that away. So hopefully this resource pack will save hours of time and add that same weight of value to your space scenes. This is usable in both 2D and 3D art, but first read these terms of usage:

Conditions of use:police:
:bulletred: You are NOT allowed to use these in commissioned work or other commercial products without direct permission from me, and chances are I will ask for a small portion of the profits if the stock plays a prominent role.
:bulletyellow: You CAN however use these in deviations you want to make available as prints, provided they are only sold as deviant prints like most artists here do.
:bulletgreen: You are not allowed to re-distribute these images passing them off as your own stock material. This includes changing the colours, adding shading, rendering 3D spheres using the maps, turning them into brushes, picture tubes or textures etc.
:bulletblue: You MUST credit me and link back to either this or my main dA page under any deviation you use these images in. I helped you, so you help me.
:idea:Tips for 2D artists!
If you have no 3D programs, then the "Premade Planets" gives you the option to use a planet that's tilted on an angle rather than just "straight-on". The premade planets are uniformly-lit, so you are in total control over what "phase" the planet appears in and can add a glowing atmosphere around it to your liking. Just open one, duplicate the layer, select the black areas around it and "cut" to get the planet off the background and drag it into your scene.

You can however try to use the texture-maps to make your own planets too. You can even overlay different maps over each other, play with the colour balance or gradient map features etc in Photoshop to create an endless array of new gas giant maps based on existing ones.
:idea:Tips for 3D artists!
Obviously the way to go is use one of the "Texture maps" on a 3D sphere and you practically have an instant planet! But you can also create a set of concentric spheres, each ever so slightly larger than the one underneath and use different maps on the outer spheres with another map again as an alpha, which can give nice "mixed patterns" (how the premade planets were made actually)

You can "tile" the texture if the planet is up close like in the preview art too, to help avoid loss of detail on closeup renders. Be careful though, while the maps join seamlessly to the left and right, they may not at the top and bottom.
:idea:Tips for Vue artists!
If you use Vue Infinite or higher you are lucky and can use both the maps and planets! for true 3D planets, follow all steps mentioned above for 3D artists and make the planet really huge and push it way beyond Vue's "world limits" and have the "aerial perspective" of the atmosphere fairly high.

Vue infinite and xstream has the "custom" planet feature, load Vue's default planet (which always appears beyond the atmosphere), click "custom" and search for the premade planet of your choice, a great asset to your sci-fi scenes if you want to avoid Vue's familiar Solar System planets.

Enjoy! please adhere to the conditions of use, and remember almost all my art is NOT stock material unless I have clearly stated otherwise like here

Can I use this for a non profit fan-film? I'm working on a fan-film based on Alien in Unreal 4, and I was wondering if I may have permission to use it.

This is what I used for. Video is not monetized, and you are credited in the description with a link to your profile. It'll probably be a placeholder for now, as I plan on practicing and eventually making an animated texture. Hope you like it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=40hnrZ…

These textures look great! Finally I've found some realistic looking ones for turbulent gas giants that aren't obviously manipulations of Jupiter!

I'd like to use modified versions of them in add-ons for Celestia (like the one you linked in the description) and Orbiter Space Flight Simulator.
These add-ons will be released non-commercially and I'll credit you in the documentation.

i have to say that this an absolutely amazing resource pack that you put together here. the community really needs more like this.
because of you, i was inspired to make my own gas giant resource pack, right here.---->Gas Giant Resource Pack by Alpha-Element

so i have to thank you for the inspiration.:)
keep up the good work.

Neat! I like the white-ish ones :) I sometimes think about doing a new set, seeing how I can create better gas giants than the ones I have here (while still not using NASA images that is) but on the other hand, I like keeping my best resources exclusive so I can have a leg up on the competition ;p

Alpha-Element Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks, the white ones are pretty nice.:) the white green one gave me the most trouble out of the five. i spent about an hour trying to turn it into a seamless texture.:faint: the others only took about five minutes to turn seamless.
i think you should go ahead and make another resource pack like this or similar to it, if you have the time or patience for it of coarse!;)
i myself plan on creating another texture pack soon, so keep a look out for that one. it'd be really nice to get feed back on these so that i can make them more realistic and dynamic, not just some other version of saturn.^^;

i agree with you on the last point too! i myself can create more realistic planet textures than the ones seen here, but i like to keep those for myself!:D there's only so much i could do for the community you know?!^^;

What programs can this be used with? Paint tool sai? Paint.NET? photoshop?

And how do you install it, as in where are the textures supposed to be in folders etc. :)

:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It should work with any program that accepts JPEG files (which is pretty much all of them) as that's the format they're saved in (though when you download it you'll need to unlock the contents of the zipped folder, in which the images will appear ready to use in a regular, non-zipped folder)

Hey, thanks by the way, I always found your gas giants to be the best. They are simply amazing. Anyway, I finally got apophysis and made a fractal nebula with a bit of painting, but nowhere as good as your nebulae.
