EDIT: I had to split the file in half, since it was too large. This pack contains the comets, planets, asteroids, and textures.
EDIT 2: This file has been fixed and will work in GIMP now! If you downloaded it before reading this edit, please reinstall it.

To cope with the slight case of design block I've been experiencing, I've recently started dabbling in the ever fascinating Space Art, which is loads of fun.
What is not always fun, though, is trying to remember all the gazillions of brush sets you used, finding the correct links, posting them in each deviation, and trying to remember all those rules from all those brush makers that if you don't follow you'll get your head chewed off.
So, I have decided to remedy this situation by making my own Ultimate Space Brush Set! And I said 'Ultimate' for a reason! There are 154 brushes in this set, including stars, planets, galaxies, nebulea, asteroids, and textures. For the beginning space artist, this is your go-to brush pack for making some awesome art! And that's not even the best part.
Wanna know the best part?
It's 100% free!
I mean it! No links, credits, faves, comments, nothing is required, except that you take these and have fun! (Comments and faves are always appreciated of course, and I'd love to see a link to any work you make. Space art never gets old.)

All Other Art Programs
You will need to make the brushes yourself. I have uploaded the image pack to make it easier, but I cannot help you make brushes in any program but Photoshop. If you do make a brush set, feel free to upload it to DeviantART or elsewhere giving credit only to yourself and NASA, but please leave a link here so I can add your set to my description.
This is my first brush set, so I really don't have much experience making them. If you have trouble installing or using them, feel free to comment; however, there is a good chance I won't be able to help you.
Most of the images are free domain from NASA
Thanks to my sister, *FaerieBert, for her help throughout the brushmaking process.

Hi! I'm a newbie to photoshop (Corel) and am not 100% sure how to download these fantastic brushes. Help me out if you can please lol. Thanks so much, these are awesome.
Hello there, and welcome to Photoshop! You'll love it. What operating system are you using?
Corel Ultimate Friend of mine who does fantasy digital art says I should start from there as she thought it was one of the easier programs. Having a hard time though trying to figure out how to get pictures on say the main background not sure how to do that so I have to go into piZap for that. :-/
Thanks for the fantastic brushes
I'm honored that you used my brushes! Thanks so much!
