I've just published a tutorial that teaches you how to easily create a cloudscape that is perfect for any outdoor scene.

During the tutorial you will learn:

  • How to model a cloud
  • The correct materials to apply
  • An easy two point lighting setup
  • How to use multiple displacement modifiers for fluffier clouds

I've made the tutorial text and picture based because I know some people like to skip past the parts they already know :P

  1. He he. I like the small picture of you in the bottom left. Gives it a much more personal feel...just like what we're used to with Blender

  2. what I wonder is how he gets the volumetrics to look so fine/solid/smooth. whenever i use volumetrics, it looks all grainy and nasty. but nice work :)

  3. nice job!
    and it is very kind of you making a non-video tut about the subject
    that is very helpful for guys with low interet output
    thanks again

    You are free to download the vids! I don't mind :)
    When you log in to Vimeo you should see a download link on the right hand side.
