I really would like to learn drawing clouds, and this picture is an attempt for that. I still don’t know what is the best and easiest way for me. I tried to use different brushes, and I tried drawing them in a cartoonish way as well. So far I've come to the conclusion that it depends on the situation, wich one works the best. When I draw it in a catoonish way, I feel the result is closer to my taste, but sadly it’s really time consuming (for now, at least). So it seems it won’t be beneficial in my comic projects when I have to finish a page in a limited time. So most of the cases it will be better to use the cartoony style just for single images or in short projects.

By the way, I still have difficulties to “feel” the clouds and to understand their shapes. I feel I still need tons of practice. (Like in so many other things too.) Somehow I really want to be good at this, because something really touches me about clouds :D There’s something calming and inviting about them.

I used references for the pictures, and I just thought to put my characters enjoying the view on the picture as well :)
