This week we are celebrating the launch of PhotoDune, Envato's new stock photography website with a series of photo effect and photo manipulation tutorials that showcase the images from our new marketplace. The 3D tools in Photoshop CS5 Extended make it easy for anyone to add 3D elements to their images. In this tutorial you will create a planet using a 3D Sphere, and utilize the new Repousse feature to extrude objects in 3D space. Let's get started!
The following assets were used during the production of this tutorial. Unfortunately, the PhotoDune author did not respond to our request to distribute their image to our premium members but any rocky or grungy texture should do.
