You can see where the magic is missing How do you get the sky 'clear' by the end? I understand the process at the beginning (rough then up), and I can manage about half way, but getting that feeling of crystal clear quality is just alluding me, do you have any suggestions? Or is just an illusion caused by detailing in the foreground?
I'll keep trying. But thanks for this tutorial, it's one of the better landscape ones to follow!
I'm not sure what you mean by clear quality. If you mean the hard edges I just used a lasso tool for some of the peaks and a hardbrush for the others.
The sky is just a gradient and everything is layered on top of it. I take note to not paint outside of whatever the object is that I'm painting, like the mountains, I paint the edges and then paint inside those edges, never picking color or painting on the sky behind it. If I have to then I go back to the sky layer and paint it in.

Oh yea a lot of times I look into the brush settings and try it out all by myself, but sometimes I'm just confused which one is the perfect setting for that brush haha, and ouh I have one question, what's the opacity/flow settings for the brush when you paint landscape/scenario/environments? Cuz like, I'm always confused how to draw that "neat edges" thingy lol~
