Wait, so how did you get the transformed stock clouds to fit into the starfield? Like how'd you merge the two? Cause I can't seem to figure it out, I can only drag and drop layers onto each other. I can't do anything about merging them together, especially when they are two separate pictures.
I set the blending to overlay? It will only look like a perfect merge if you have the right contrast ratio and colors of both your painted base and the clouds. Its rather tricky and you kinda gotta keeping playing around till ya get lucky
I actually made this in elements 4-5... Above the layer there should be a little box that says "normal". These are your layer blending options. Switch it to overlay and that should help some. The rest is tweaking the hues,brightness,contrast.
Hey this tutorial is super helpful, but can you tell me how you blended out your original brushstrokes so you couldn't tell they were brush strokes without blurring them and while maintaining thick colored lines?
Just curious though, did you do this with a wacom tablet or mouse?
Heh Either way I guess I'll give it a try... Its such a great tutorial, with such a great effect!
Oh, and what brush did you use? Looking through previous comments you say "Default spatter brush" and "#27". Would you happen to mean the one of the default chalk brushes? Photoshop doesn't come with default spatter brushes... lol So yea just curious if thats what you meant (Looking carefully at the ends of lines in the first drawing part it looks like it is... or something very similiar. That would also explain how you got the grain (: )
That part of the tutorial I did poorly. Like all my tutorials, I make them very quickly cause I do not have alot of time on my hands. The overall point in that section was not to have an overly "noised" starfeild. Like you say, proximity is important. Also, randomization is equally important.

Particularly what sky scape images did you use? I'm doing the same thing, but in a totally different concept but the sky images shown on the tut. look amazing, but i can't find them on resurgere's stocks :/
