How to create a very special space effects

Today we are going to create a very special space like illustration. In this tutorial I’m going to use Brush and Standard PS techniques.

So let’s begin. Start and create 1024x1024px file and a layer ass well.

On our layer make a Round selection and fill it with Rounded shape Gradient (like this ? opacity 100 % – the most important here is to set a good beginning and end of gradient point ? so try it.

I solved this problem this way ? I used a Rounded gradient and Vivid Light with 23% options (note to select The Whole layer). USE IT 2X times beginning from the same point.
