Just did this in Illustrator as a practice piece. I'm trying to see how shiny I can make it look, at the same time wanting to have an original work. I exported it to photoshop for the reflection.

That is nice also. I have to practice some more with the different CS3 programs.

looks pretty good, i think having such a strong white circle going that far down beaks the sphere shape a bit, play around with that :p

I think it would make a strong icon, the reflection might look a bit better less blurred.

I would agree the white inside the sphere try to make it not come down as much. It will help complete the shape more. Other than it's pretty good :).

nice ball, looks :)
indeed the big white circle is a bit too big, and u can make reflection also in illustrator, no need to edit it in photoshop :)

The ball does look pretty convincingly shiny. I have to agree that the white part is a little too dominant. Try to take it down a notch, but try to leave a sliver of pure or nearly pure white along the edge as an accent.

I think if you play around with blurring the image more so that you get a greater gradation of shades you would probably be more satisfied with the results.

The colors of the gradient would be more effective by using illustrator its really giving us a wonderful outcomes.,

I find that the darker richer hues you go the better the outcome unless working from negative.

looking great, use the appearance feature found in window and change the layer's appearance to multiply to get the sheer effect of transpiring colors of each layer on each other, but on the white layer don't use it so you do not loose the white color and to keep the shine, hope this helps a bit!
