Tutorial: Painting Sky in PS by ToySkunk Tutorial: Painting Sky in PS by ToySkunk
A long-promised tutorial! I have more up my sleeve for the future.

It's hard to cover all eventualities with sky, but I tried to give you a grounding to work from so you can make your own things up. Hopefully some of you will find it useful, anyway. :)
It's been a while since I've submitted a (serious) tutorial, and I figure you guys like them because I've had an obscene number of :+fav:s on my other ones. If you like them, I'll try to provide them.

Enjoy!

If there are any typos, I'll 1) seethe and stomp about and 2) fix 'em

tips would be nice..how long do you usually spend on making clouds? that would help too. cuz i only spent an hour for each try..maybe i must continue to go on longer?

This looks great, nice and simple to do but with a professional output. I've got a picture that is gonna wind up with me having to paint some sky which is something I've never done before, so I think I'll keep hold of this and give it a try when I get up to it!

Thanks a lot, very well done! :thanks:
