Some clouds for the portfolio. They were intended to be a shmup background, but I got carried away with adding details/colors, so the bullets wouldn't read too well against the white. It was still a really useful study; prior to doing it I didn't have a very solid understanding of how to draw nice puffy clouds. 

I also started posting more stuff on twitter, now that exams are over, like some progress stages and other small things.

Pretty much perfect pixel-clouds, yup.

@moondrome - I wouldn't go that far, but that's very nice of you to say :)

@Bark Snarly - thank you!

they look like clouds from a master from reinassance. most of the people around will never know pixel clouds could look like this

Great clouds dude, they look lovely!

i'm fairly sure that's the issue, I updated the file of my most recent piece a few times, renaming it each time and then the last time I done it I forgot to give it a new name and as a result the preview got messed up.

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/17/2015 19:01

@paddy - man, I have no idea how to avoid that. I had the same exact file name and path.

I saw this on pixelation.

Paddy (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/17/2015 18:55

much better, and for only the cheap cost of breaking your preview haha

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/17/2015 18:47

Nice catch, I hadn't noticed it before. Should be fixed now. 

Paddy (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 5/17/2015 18:38

I feel like the shape here makes it appear as if the blue is a solid wall rather than a sky due to the fact it's really close to the exact same as the part of cloud to the right of it, making it look like a shadow on said wall. Maybe changing the shape of it would help remove this issue.

Really nice nonetheless.
