Resource, PS Brush: MLP Gallop Clouds by Gray--Day Resource, PS Brush: MLP Gallop Clouds by Gray--Day
This simple Photoshop brush set is meant to imitate the dust clouds that ponies and animals from the show kick up while running. I've been using it for my comics and it's been pretty useful, so I've decided to share it here.

How to import into Photoshop:
1. Keep Photoshop closed.
2. Open the directory where you've installed Phtoshop
(The default for CS4 would be Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4).
3. From there, go to the Presets → Brushes folder and place the file included for download with this deviation there.
4. Open Photoshop.
5. When you select the brush tool, this set should now be permanently available under this small drop-down menu:

How to use:
Hopefully all the settings worked when I saved the file - there are 3 different types of clouds, they are meant to be spaced, scattered and varied in size and angle. Choose a brownish color and use adjustment layers (hue/saturation, brightness/contrast) to give it a look that will blend with your chosen background properly.


This work by me - :iconclosetbrony2:

I can never figure out how to make these. It's just it looks like a lot of overlapping shapes.

Uh-oh, if there's a chance something's not working right, I'll have to check these on a different computer.
