Cloud Tutorial

A... small-ish tutorial about drawing clouds, or rather, about what you need to consider and watch out for when drawing them...

Don't know if this even can be considered a real tutorial xD; But I hope it helps you gain one or two new points of view on painting skies.

You didn't mention on the structure of a cloud.
I know clouds are random in sizes and shapes, but there must a technique to estimate the sizes and shapes.
Maybe outline the clouds?

I am going to nominate this for a DD as soon as your six months are up for having just gotten one today. :stare:

This is an incredible guide, and it should really be taught more that it's important to not only be able to "see" but be able to "understand." Great work here, and beautiful speedpaints!

LMFAOOO I won't lie xD I'm surprised my copic tutorial got a DD instead of this one... especially considering the fact that I'm a digital artist, not a traditional one. LOL

Hey thanks for this tutorial. It's really helped change my perspective about the sky and I definitely value your insight! I've recently picked up painting using Corel Painter 12 and I've been attempting to approve my form. Thanks again and I'll be adding you to my watch list!
