Anonymous said: Um, hi! I was wondering if you could do a mini tutorial on how to colour clouds? (You don't have to do this uvu) I really love your word, I'm inspired by it!

sojuice:

i got multiple questions about this, so i’ll just answer it on this ask

sorry i kept putting it off for so long…

so… i guess i would think of what kind of sky i would want

i like sunsets, so i’ll draw that

image

so i start with the very back color; it’s a dull purple

my intent is to go from purple/dark grey->peach/pink

image

i like to use this fuzzy brush

imagenot sure what to call these… the ‘back’ / ‘dark’ clouds?

i put on random splotches at 40~50% opacity of dark blue around the edges

image

imagei’m going to put my light source at the bottom right, so i put a rusty orange color slightly at 10~20% opacity

imagethen i blended the colors before i started to add more colors

the more you blend, the better the picture will look 8)

imagenow i put my pen at around size 8-10 to put in thin areas of peach/gold where the light will hit at around 60% opacity

image

color it where ever you think it looks good 

image

i like to adjust my colors and edit on sai

on an overlay layer on top of the drawing, i airbrushed so dark blue in at the top left and right

image

then near the end i like to use the combination of lower brightness and higher contrast

i’ll put a video later since my explanation is horrible most of the time…

sorry i put the drawing sideways… it wouldn’t fit

try these drawings for reference…

maybe use the eyedropper and use colors from these?

hope that helps 

this is for the multiple color asks received

An adequate fuck-ton of heavy-set human references (per request).

[Why the FUCK is it so difficult to find chubby references??!!?! This is BULLSHIT. I ended up resorting to a fucking shitty BMI chart for reference, which is fucked up. To all you artists out there, make more heavy-set references, seriously.]

I’ve been asked to recommend brushes for realistic painting (or whatever painting) so these are my three favourite brush settings
The first one is my main brush I paint everything with it and I love it very much!
I know you might have a different SAI version so I put the Cloud texture and so on here to download if you need it (just copy into the folders and open SAI via start-sai)
