I used 4 layers: 1 for bg sky, 2 for moons, 3 for clouds and 4 for this bright cloud in front. It depends on picture itself how much layers i use, sometimes it can be no layers at all and sometimes if scene is more complex i use 3-6 layers...
ok cool, hey i got a question u might know.. how do i take a picture and crop in then fit an an blend it in the peace im workin on,, also, is there a way to make your own brushes. say for example. i wanna do bushes, ive seen on youtube people doing it.. but i just dont know how.. im kinda new to painter 12
Hmmm rarely use pictures for my drawings but i think i would take picture and just simply paint or draw right atop of it. So the picture become part of the drawing... And about the brushes. I actually never tried to make one myself, but i think this tutorial can help you: [link]
Well yeah Jupiter is very unfriendly world and i just love painting storm systems which naturally relate with something bad. I really love skies like this, they give that feeling when atmosphere around you is quiet and calm but you see a huge thunderstorm in the distance which slowly closing to you and you know that... well let's just say "calm before the storm"
