Cloud Tutorial + Video by Laitma Cloud Tutorial + Video by Laitma
Here we go! Cloud tutorial, images drawn in PaintTool Sai, put together with good ol' MS Paint.
Please excuse any errors, awkward typography, vagueness, etc, etc. If there are any questions or anything you want clarification on, just ask!
Sorry I'm not the best at these tutorials... but really, that was all I could think of to say! That's also pretty much all there is to how I paint my clouds... though, this tutorial's rather simple in terms of color, sorry. I've yet to learn how to paint clouds at sunset yet!

Thank you all very much for your support, and I hope that this'll be useful to some of you! ♥

:star: UPDATE: VIDEO INCLUDED [link] :star:
That's right, I've added a video now, just a short clip, showing you all how I actually go about doing this in Sai. Hope that this helps some of you, or at least is fun to watch (it's short, just 3+ minutes...)

Ah, just glad that it was of use!
To be honest I did this tutorial a while back so I don't really remember the water tool settings--but a bit more than halfway down the tutorial the screencaps should show some of the settings? I kept it fairly default! Hope that helps!

I'm going to use this later today, once I get back from a lot of places and do my homework. (Ugh.)
I can already tell it is useful. I read through the whole thing.

I tried. They came out a little bit too fadey, but I like them kind of. x3
Yours are so much better.

Ahhhh, not at all, these are great! Just yes, try to leave some more hard edges with shading, and also perhaps cut a few more hard edges out with an eraser, perhaps? Keep at it though, it looks fantastic! :)

Awwwwwwwww, no, that looks excellent! It matches your soft painted style quite well, and it looks great--I just hope that the tutorial proved useful! :)
If you want, you can try adding more white to the tops of the clouds, and maybe playing around with the shapes more by "cutting" out more parts of it with the eraser, leaving some slightly harder edges. Keep experimenting, you're doing great!

This may sound odd, but I actually use this tutorial to help me with hair.
Reply
:iconlaitma:
Laitma Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Student General Artist
Hahah, I can kind of see that, actually! A lot of techniques end up being useful for multiple processes, and I tend to block in colors with a hard-edged brush before softening them up/detailing them more...

Part of my style is also drawing characters with ridiculously fluffy hair. I have three characters whose hair looks like a mutant sheep, and I draw them. A lot. So therefore, this tutorial is very useful, even if I don't have SAI. :meow:

Only about one of them's cute (in a strange peasant kind of way) The other ones are a tomboy and a complete Mary Sue respectively. X3 But I suppose fluffy hair is quite adorable, on the right person. :meow:
