I was going to send you a note about how you make your clouds but... I took a look through your profile page, saw your youtube link and channel, then became curious. I found your Clouds Speed Painting video to be very helpful despite the absence of text or audio over-lay for direction. Here's Apofiss' speed painting of Clouds Link so anyone else looking who's interested has a direct connection to what I'm talking about. Any who... your video show's your method very well. There's a lot of blending (smearing / blurring), color sampling, more blending and the occasional layer merging; along with scenery, depth and lighting knowledge. LOL, you certainly made it look easy... I know that it probably wasn't easy when you were first discovering your method.

Thank you for the tutorial, and for your Youtube speed painting video... it helped to define the complexities of creating clouds. :D :highfive:

PS. when you have time, could you show us how you illustrate and paint water... I know that it's a tricky topic and there are many ways to do it but your style is captivating and I would like to know how you do it... thanks again!... C:

glad it was helpful!

as for water, it's kind of simple yet wide subject to cover as water can have very different conditions to be in; it can even start with a simple bubble~
