Here is the tutorial that I promised... but don't expect that much, since I'm doing it in a laptop, and my RAM is not big enough to support a big tutorial (like colouring tutorial, which requires many many layers and a big document).

As you might have noticed, the blue becomes darker each picture. I added some more blue to enhance the shape of the cloud, that's why.

And the rest is up to you.

Please also give me comments for future tutorials (if I'm going to make more, this will be very useful).
And please also :+fav: if you find this one nice.
*Don't forget to thank my laptop for working really hard hehe*

Here's an example of my finished clouds: Imperial Army by Grishend

Thank you!

What strength should the smudge be?
Grishend's avatar
Hi. Sorry for my late reply. I personally keep them low, so anything below 50% should be ok. Personal preference is around 35.

35, alright, thanks ^^
