Cloudy Sky Tutorial by Mangsney Cloudy Sky Tutorial by Mangsney
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…?

Wow. This is VERY helpful! Now I can finally say that yes, I made my skies myself without using pre-made brushes :D
Thank you SO MUCH!!! Btw, it works for Gimp, so anyone who has Gimp doesn't have an excuse.

I'm trying to use this but when I change the mode to screen I'm still seeing the black from the clouds in the area white should be. Any suggestions?

Hi,

Are you sure you're following the steps correctly? If you have a blue layer underneath the rendered clouds, when you screen the cloud layer, the white parts should stay white and the black ones should go blue.
