Awesome tutorial, thank you very much!
If you don't mind me asking, how did you get the color effects? Did you just use a normal brush on a normal layer? I tried putting a multi color gradient on a new layer and messing around with the blending mode, but the clouds stayed a solid black, so it looked really bad...

hey,

try using hue/saturation adjustments and brushing on a new layer with color on color or overlay blending mode. It all depends on the base picture, you need to experiment to get good results :) Good luck!

Well yesterday I didn't know how to colour my space background yet and I used google images.. Today I learnt it and then used my own cloud photos and experimented a little and ended up with [link] which I think looks cool just the fact that there's a lot of clouds..

looks nice, add some stars and overlay more cloud images to make small clouds of dark gas in the foreground, that would give a lot more depth to the image.

Okay thanks, should I add them at the existing clouds or in between them?

And why on earth had I never considered using my own pictures of clouds?!?!?!
I had always avoided the other methods because I didn't like the idea of using stocks. Using stocks makes me feel like it's not my own work.

Haha who knows why I had never considered that!

Wonderful tut :)

i love this idea but its kinda hard to follow on some of the instructions. like for ex: wut r u supposed to do after phase 2 when u put ur start, also how do u make the stars? how do u make them glow, n so on.

There are plenty of starfield tutorials, here I was just explaining my way of doing nebulae. After phase two you can experiment with blending modes, add some color layers, etc - use your imagination! :D

There is no such tool as the grunge tool - there are however grungy looking brushes that you can download and use in PS. Search for "grunge brushes" here on deviantart and im sure you'll find a whole bunch.
