A Quick Cloud Effect

In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a quick cloud effect, using a simple gradient and the Warp Brush.

Firstly, open a new image in the size you want your canvas to be. My example will be 300x300 pixels.
Then, make a new gradient with the two colours you desire, like so:



Use the Flood fill tool, to fill your canvas with the gradient

Select the Warp Brush,



and adjust the settings so they match the ones below:
(You can change the size according to the size of your canvas)



Move the Warp brush around the center of the canvas, and you'll see the clouds take shape. This will give you an idea of where you want to move the warp brush around to create more realistic looking cloud shapes.


You can also try other gradients using this effect, and you can make the sky as dramatic or subtle as you want, by varying some of the settings.
Here's another example I did, using the built in JASC Landscape desert gradient!
