The Solar System Booklet

My idea is ‘The Solar System’ for the booklet.

I have made my own planets with different textures and techniques to make them look like real planets in Photoshop.

These are the Photoshop tools that I used to make The Solar System,  Outer Glow, Cloud, Level, Brightness / Contrast and Elliptical Marquee Tool. I created every single planet using these tools. I was not sure how to make these but with a little research and experiment I was able to design and create the planets.

I made this image linking all the planets to create one big planet. The text is a from a speech given by Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian American astronaut.

Improvement

I got feedback about this booklet and was told that I needed to add some statistics about planets for example, temperature, distance from earth and diameter. The font needed to be lighter. Gaps to the edge of pages needed to be equal. All the pages needed clearer borders by not putting text and images too close to the borders.Screen Shot 2015-01-11 at 17.18.32
