Hehe thanks :D i dont really like it myself, but thats probably cuz i made it... im not sure if ill make a tutorial but for the planet you can do this tutorial:
Planet tutorial

And if you need help with the color settings i can help.
The rest of the image is pretty easy, stars are made with HSV noise and the supernova(? :think: )
is just an image( i made my own with a couple of brush strokes) i used motion blur>zoom on, it also has a supernova in the middle xD.

All of those(well, just the supernova and the zoomed image) is made into one layer and zoomed again but just a tiny bit, then color>colorize, then color>color balance and whatever setting there you want. The color balance settings you use there should also be aplied to the planet(my planet is in one layer, i merged them all together, just so theres no confusion there)

If there is anything else you need help with feel free to ask(or if you need indepth information)


[EDIT]
I was trying to make a cool effect on a wolf image, i partly sicceded but im not happy with it yet, as usual^^

[EDIT 3]

I made a new tutorial due to SPARTANS request, it is not super good, i am tired ;) and i left ALOT of room for the user to make the image his or her own, so to speak.
Btw, i did not go over the process of making planets, just the image, but the planet tutorial is linked my tutorial.

anyway here it is:
Space tutorial

[EDIT 4]

I made a new image, this time i used both GIMP and PS.

I know I haven't been very responsive to these and I wanted to say something:
First I think all of your abstract stuff is awesome. A small critique on those is that I've noticed that most of them use a blank black background, personally I would probably do a subtle gradient on them. I find that doing something subtle in the background (whether it is a gradient or something else) can sometimes make an abstract image look even better. Kinda like this.

Also, as you requested for Edit 5:
I really like the space one, the planets look really nice and the green aura is a nice touch to it. The only thing that bugs me is the lighting on the orange planet. The giant planet and the tiny planet have light coming from the bottom right, but the orange one comes from above. Although, if you did fix that, you would probably have a dark planet that you wouldn't be able to see very well. So, I dunno exactly what I would do with that...

I also like the elemental ones, I've always like those kind of wispy smoky images. I think the only thing I would change is like I said above with the backgrounds.

That's nice, I really like the glowing and rays of light. The background looks good with it too. ;)
