Clouds are easier to draw than other things....until I try to put anything on it. Then comes all the confusion regarding the diffuseness/occlusion/shape/lighting etc. Meh. At least wasting time on it was somewhat fun.

I'm still trying to learn lighting. There's something about it in this and all of my other drawings that just doesn't sit quite right. Would someone kindly give me a few tips?

Wellwhatcanyoudo....Maybe I'll pick up a book and learn if and when I get out of the doldrums. Such is life

:sing:
Bows and flows of angel's hair,
Ice cream castles in the air,
And feather canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way,
But now they only block the sun,
They rain, they snow on everyone.
So many things I could have done
But clouds got in my way.


-from "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this. Her mane and tail look positively...well for no other words, they look almost scarily real, right down to the little hairs sticking out. Her eyes, particularly the irises, are incredible, and I can say the same about the way her fur seems short to make her aerodynamic but...you can tell it's there. And the wings. Holy shit the wings. Nothing short of amazing. And the clouds look realistic yet somehow...comfy, instead of vapory. I have nothing else to say except "Holy shit." This is quite literally the greatest pony art I have /EVER/ seen.
