^ 15 minutes, rushing before my compy shut itself down at midnight!
I take it this is more like the weekly sketch group these days? Not complaining - it's awesome regardless. I guess mostly I'm just stoked to compare my current work with old stuff from here and realise that I have actually improved!

link to technique?
It's missleading to say its made with just a "technique", but for me it was a workflow that was new. I painted it mostly using big brushes, and brushes shaped as clouds/storms. Then I used layermasks to "paint out"
things and make the shapes more interesting and unique. I also used warp and distortion to make things fit nicely on the planet surface. Another thing I would do is duplicate layers with clouds, put them beneath and move them out of position and nudge their edges a bit with smudge and adjust the value (to something a bit darker), that creates a quick and accurate shadow. It would also be "warped" to fit with the direction of the light.
Anyways, here is the PSD file if you're interested.
