Paint Tool Sai: Cloud Tutorial by DrunkenCucumber Paint Tool Sai: Cloud Tutorial by DrunkenCucumber
:bulletblue: Status: First Tutorial!
:bulletblue: Programs: Photoshop & Paint Tool Sai.

So I recently posted a picture of a couple of CG clouds and few people sent me notes asking how it was done...

Q&A
Q: How many layers do I need to create?
A: This was all done on one layer!

Q: What colours did you use to do the actual cloud?
A: White. Only white.

Q: Did you use a graphics tablet?
A: No I used my laptops mouse, but I'm sure it would work using both.
