Steven Stahlberg has a cloud tutorial on his site. Just google his name and you'd find it.

And painting cloud is never easy. Nothing in painting is ever easy. There is no easy way--only the hard way. :D

SOCAR MYLES had some tutorials about that too (Google it). And at Sumaleth's tutorials archive you may find some more...

i dont mean to sound rude when i say this but there is a reason painting is what it is.....not everyone that picks up a brush is going to be a master same goes for a pencil, chalk clay, or a computer...... the tutorials may seem hard but that just means you need practice .... think of how much time is spent in school learning to 'draw' the simple letter 'a' the greatest tutorial in the world will never make up for talent and hard work....

Painting clouds, mists and smoke is easy using nozzles. Unfortunately, we don't offer any cloud nozzle freebies or tutorials (yet anyway), but here are (was "is" :) a few quick examples of what cloud nozzles can do:

Good luck,

That's a link to some awesome texture tutorials. They aren't application specific so you should be able to use bits from them with any 2D program. There's a cloud one there too. I'm posting it because while Socar's cloudes are amazingly beautiful(I'm talking real poetry) they are rather style specific and some people may be looking for a different style to work with.

There are a couple of Painter brush libraries on my Guest Resources page ( for rendering clouds if they are of use to you.
