How to get this effect?
This is what I tried but it didn't close to what I see in this picture:
Created a custom shape (like heart).
Highlighted the shape and then went to Filter->Brush Stroke->Spatter.
Copied a portion of the cloud and pasted into new layer
Created clipping mask to the shape.
Then cleaned up a little more.
My version is with the heart (My work.jpg)
Can someone shed some light?
Re: How to get this affect?
I'd say cut out some objects you want to place in the sky, place them in a new layer and clone their surface on a new layer using clouds as a reference. After that lower the transparency and dodge and burn the highlights and shadows on them. Maybe I would even first dodge and burn on a new "Soft Light"-layer (replicating the original shadows and highlights) and put this layer above the cloned clouds afterwards.
Oh, and don't forget to turn off the transparency of the objects' layers.
Re: How to get this effect?
I would suggest you get good 3D objects (not flat 2D shapes) and a good cloud image. Paste the objects into a separate layer and create a Displacement Map of them. Then apply the displacement map to the Clouds layer. Select all the objects, invert the selection and delete all of the cloud layer where there are no objects.
If you are not familiar with them, there are many free tutorials floating around on creating and applying a Displacement Map - just google it.
