How to Draw Clouds:
In the video, I begin to show you my technique of how to draw clouds. This is something that I have come up with during my own struggles with drawing clouds. After a lot of practice, this is what the result of my cloud drawings have become. Now I can enjoy it even more because I can share it with everyone else. My method starts with just lightly sketching out where I want the clouds to be. After which I shade in with a 4B pencil in and around the areas making sure not to fill in the areas where I want the clouds to be.
Next step is to take a blending stump and blend out the whole shaded part of the sky to make it nice and smooth. Also use that blending stump to start to carry some of that shading into the bottoms of the clouds and fill in the greater part of them as well with shading.
Then take a kneaded eraser and press down with it and give it a bit of a twist on the tops of the clouds. It helps to give it that "wispy" look which helps to give it that illusion of depth. Keep doing this until all of your clouds have a nice overall appeal to them. After which all you really need to do is add in details inside the clouds which can also be done with a kneaded eraser in the same way the edges of the clouds were done.
Then all you need to do is take a fine tipped eraser and just add in some very small details here and there just to give it a bit more visual interest and then you are all set.
I hope you all enjoyed the video and thank you all for watching!
