ah okay i get ur point.. but i dont quite agree.. u said that alyns planets are all against dark sky.. it doesnt really change anything.. in the process of doing the planet u can easily set down the opacity fo the "black shadow" layer.. then merge it when u import it into ur mattepainting and then set it to a blend mode such as screen? that would give the result ur looking for.. however i do understand that when set to screen or similar modes certain details of the background shimmmer through.. but could it not work setting the shadow layer of the planet to the color of the sky would that not give u the same result?
but nonetheless stunning matte :)
