Advice on realistic sky?

Recommended Posts


alright take out all the white and cover a small square with the square cropping tool,make a new layer and on layer one, take color 477CCA and fill it, then, then on the second layer take color 5186CF and fill it, use frosted glass and set it to

maximum 81.31

minimum 81.31

smoothness 8

merge it down one and stretch it to cover the canvas

now make a new layer and set it to the bottom and use clouds and set to whatever looks right to you.

on the top layer, set opacity to 176 as normal

should look ok

I don't remember exactly how I did this...

I just remember messing with a bunch of different cloud layers, Curves+, some blending modes and obviously the gradient background.

Oh, and the streak in the back was made with clouds, motion blur and Octagonal/Quad reshape/matte...
