Gimp is the best free graphics application out there. It won't draw it for you, but it is certainly a nice tool to use to do so.

A good way to draw an actual globe map is to use ZBrush and actually digitally paint onto a globe.

I think you would need at least a bump map too to get some good looking planets.
You know, mountains, craters, defined surface features etc...
