Cloud Tutorial by xpuresnow Cloud Tutorial by xpuresnow
So as requested by many, I've finally made a cloud tutorial~

Just to be clear, this tutorial's not really meant for beginners. I mean, you have to know the basics of whichever program you're using for it to be helpful. And yes, you can probably do the same thing on a different program like Sai or whatever because I used basic tools, and when you get down to the basics, it's pretty much the same.

It might've been more helpful for me to make a blue sky and
go from there, but I want people to experiment on their own with different colour combinations and such. Also, I think I should mention here that I only used 2 layers for the picture. A sky layer, and a cloud layer over top.

I don't think I'm very good at making tutorials so I'm not sure how clear I made everything, but feel free to ask questions!

Enjoy, and good luck on your cloud making!

This is a wonderful tutorial! I've always had trouble making my clouds look like clouds rather than just formless blobs of color, but I'm following along this tutorial in the drawing I'm working on now, and I think my clouds are turning out very nice this time ^_^ And I think your tutorial was very clear and easy to follow. I've been searching for good cloud tutorials for a while and I think this one is my favorite. Good job on this and thank you for making it!
