Quick and Easy Cloud Tutorial by kayoru Quick and Easy Cloud Tutorial by kayoru
A gazillion years ago someone requested this tut... Sorry it took so long. You probably don't need it anymore. orz;; (And I was too lazy to make one for sea/water too, sorry ||orz)



Just a quick and easy way of painting clouds, to slap on as a background on your art to fill up space 8D;

This was done in PS, but can be easily used for SAI or whatever, as long as you can switch between a hard edge and a soft edge brush. You will however, need a tablet with pen pressure.

HOWEVER SOME PEOPLE DON'T READ.
I WROTE:

This is in no way what clouds even look like so don't try this tut if you wanna paint some real shiz 'kay.


Stop telling me it's not realistic. =.= I ALREADY SAID SO MYSELF. Look now I blew the size up for all you blind folks out there.

IF YOU WANTED A REALISTIC CLOUD THE TITLE OF THIS TUT SHOULD'VE ALREADY TOLD YOU OTHERWISE.

HINT: It doesn't say, "FUCKING REALISTIC PAINT LIKE A PRO CLOUD TUT". ^_^*

I don't mind that it's not realistic, sometimes realism doesn't contribute well to a painting. This'll come in handy :dance:
