Several people have asked me how I do those cloudy skies of mine (which I tend to use too much, but hey, that's my way of distracting you from the constant lack of backgrounds *he he*) so here is anoter Crappy Tutorial of Doom!! :D

I use Photoshop CS2, but it can all be done with earlier versions.

Warning: Big file ^^;


Oh and if you want to thank anyone for this, thank my Photoshop guardian angel, because he's the one who taught me :love:

Hi. I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Can't you just make a new layer on top of the cloud background and add your characters to it…?
