    Great tutorial Stephen,

    I am really amazed by the result here! WOW!
    And I didn’t know it was possible to merge 2 3D objects in one.

    Again. another excellent tutorial. I understand that your going for your own art which I commend, but if anyone out there is looking to create the planets, there is a web site where you can download free accurate textures.
