Cool work. :)

What size did you use for the Cloud noise? I made some experiments and I used cycles for it.

Whoa!!Dude that is pretty sweet image:)
Try SIZE: 0.010 on cloud noise.
Depth: 5
NEBULA: 0.025 (not sure if this does anything to the image)

Yea that setting worked a bit better, I think I made the scale too big in the previous one. It got better with that setting, I also raised the value for "cloud noise", made the edges better I feel.
Thank you regarding my picture, it was made for the speed modeling session from reference. :)

That first one of yours is really good, really feels like crayon the second one is very good too but the effect works better in the first one. I am gonna experiment some more with this. Thanks for the tutorial.
