Description: Here's another nature tutorial for you all. This time I'll be showing you how to draw clouds. As with my other tutorials, the techniques used in this tutorial more or less mirror painting techniques. If you've ever followed along with Bob Ross, you'll follow along just fine with this tutorial!
Description: Add another layer of shading to the background. Blend your background into the outline of the cloud. You can also darken the base of the cloud to make it pop out more. This is a pretty quick and efficient way to render a single cloud. Now let's move on to harder stuff!
Description: Start forming your clouds by working from back to front. Use an HB pencil to work on the outlines and shading. Blend in your shading/outlines using a blending stump. Use a kneadable eraser to add highlights to the clouds.
Description: Finish up by shading and blending the foremost clouds. You can make all of your clouds look fluffier by lightly blending over all of them with a blending stump and then softly erasing the highlights again using a kneadable eraser. Now, let's move on to another scene.
Description: Erase the cloud shapes into the sky. Keep in mind where the horizon is. The closer the clouds are to the horizon, the farther away they are. Basically keep the smaller clouds close to the horizon and the larger clouds higher up. After that use a 6B pencil to add in a basic landscape.
Description: Now start working on the clouds and sky. Use an HB pencil to outline your clouds and shade them in. Then blend in you shading using a blending stump and use a kneadable eraser to work on the highlights. Keep in mind that the sun is somewhere in the upper right sky. so you highlight should be mainly on the top and right sides of the clouds.
Description: Finish up the drawing by blending in and defining the landscape using a 6B pencil and blending stump. Try to go back over your sky with a blending stump to smooth it out. And that's it for this tutorial! I hope you all enjoyed it. Comments and questions are more than welcome!
