A previous thread discussed using a mesh to make an image of a mushroom in Illustrator but it seems that doing it in Photoshop was easier but no one explained how this was done.  Here si the previouse question

Just as I told gabrielPennyback (who's name is actually John), who asked the original question...

 http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Illustration/Adobe_Illustrator/Q_23484510.html

...the key to understanding how this effect is produced is to study airbrush artists and learn their technique.

In a similar question, I  sent John to this link:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5064302528093241667&q=&hl=en

I wanted him to see the short video and the other similar videos in the same collection to get a feel for using stencils to create sharp edged images that have soft and complex shading on the inside.

Take a look at the videos and notice that he lays down a bunch of colors with his spray cans, then sets some pan lids and an empty spray can on top of them and sprays around the edges. The pan lids block new layer of paint and when he lifts the lids he has the shape of planets with crisp edges, but still have the smooth spray paint effect on the inside.

In the same, way you use photoshop to put down blobs of color, and then use a mask to block out the outside areas.

Take a look at the videos and then give me a shout and I'll take you through the next steps.
