How do you people make such awesome rings and gas giants, I find it impossible!

Practice, patience and some tutorials :D

I completely understand practice and patience, I just have no idea how to make them or any methods to make them. E.g for planets I new techniques and put my own style to them in a way. For nebulas I started painting them by hand since photo manipulation is limited and I have no fractal programs. But for gas giants and rings, they never seem right no matter how many times I try. Are there any good tutorials out there?

Well, I have made a gas giant tutorial long time ago. You can find it here> [link] (maybe you have to register to see the topic...) I made this picture with the same techniques. Also check out the tutorial section, you might find something useful> [link]

Hope that helps!

Cheers! :D

OutSTANDING! I love this, I've always been intrigued by ringed giants, and how people can actually get them to look right. AWESOME.

first time I saw this, I was thinking about Revan piece. not bad 'stolen' ;) only rings are a bit too basic for me, maybe they aren't blended enough good with image.

i like it. I think the ring needs to be tilted a bit more to align with the planet's rotation
