Cloud Look Development
With approved lighting, it's time to make these clouds look more like clouds! Again, I created a spreadsheet of different levels of fluffy. This was great for Isabella to see and she could easily tell me which one she liked or to choose a higher or lower fluff level.
The goal with these are to create clouds with the implied shape of objects. There was a good variety of chooses to pick from but there can only be one cloud that stays. "Fluff level: 13" was picked as it shows the right amount of detail with the larger cloud and distortion with the smaller cloud.

Lighting & Feedback
As a Lighting Artist, the first thing I want to get right is the lighting. I created a spread sheet of possible directions to explore and had Isabella (the art director) pick the best one. In the end, Lighting Setup 2 was chosen with no changes at this time. This setup chosen because of the pink hues and brighter sky.
