GIMP: GTuts.com Ultimate GIMP Planet Tutorial

It involves Planet rendering, includes a modified render script to update GIMP with, and direct links to all the materials, textures, etc. You can find that tutorial here. I was pleasantly surprised to discover it to be relatively straightforward. My goal in doing this tutorial was to make a mock poster to play a joke on a good friend of mine, (Teggy R).

The joke I was aiming for, and the reason I followed the tutorial: 
(Beware of the NOOBS!)
