Recreating an image

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to recreate image no.1(bellow). So far I have created this image no.2(bellow) but I am still not satisfied with the results. I have cloud brushes installed but I feel like this requires more tools to be used. I do not know what other tools or in what order to use them. So far I have been using brush and smudge and adjusting opacity, hardness, size and toughness. I also want to have this ''misty/foggy'' background behind clouds.

How can I achieve best results like in the first image? What steps do I need to follow?

Thanks for your answers

Hello Viceroy99

I'll be guessing you are using the mouse , same here , things to try use smaller brushes when painting in and bigger brushes when smudging quick little dab dabs of the smudge brush can give very different results to big swipes of smudge
zoom in more to get those smaller sized lines in the middle of the clouds then when you zoom back out maybe that will look more the way you want it most of the technics your using are ( seem to look on the ) right just a bit big so zoom into your image do the artwork using smaller brush sizes then zoom out and compare
may be of some help.

ahh nearly forgot use plenty of layers heaps of layers layers can then be fine tuned - add or erase parts at different opacities then you can have more fun moving the layers around to get different results Looking forward to see what you make
