returned to this after quite some time.
When playing tnt I usually use an edit of the heretic/hexen grey cloud sky (no montains and vertical tile) instead of tnt's actual sky1 (i'm a zdoom engine user who does not like the "stretch-short-skies" setting)

however an idea occurred to me why not reinstate the mountains and attempt a recolour of said skies to match the original tnt day sky:

also did this dark variant (clouds based on the original d2 sky) which I use on map 5, the hangar as I've always found the bright sky on that map odd when the outdoors section of the map itself is so dark:

please note that the over tiley nature of these graphics seems much less apparent in game (especially if you make the clouds scroll-animate behind the mountains...)

figured these might amuse or be of use to someone so share and share alike!
its something i meant to do a long time ago but kept forgetting to come back to. reasonably happy with the results.
if nothing more (those who don't need taller skies due to engine or stretch setting or whatever) with scroll, it potentially adds a bit of dynamism to an otherwise static sky...

also rejigged this sky from THT: threnody by Mechadon to fit in with tnt maps:

as you can see I've re-positioned bits and added the starry sky below to prevent vertical over-tiling on tall maps, like map16 deepest reaches (think of the large cliff bit just before the red cave/maze bit that leads to the yellow key)
also I've used a pic of NGC 1232 (obviously resized and recoloured to doom palette) which it seems was very likely the original source galaxy for the one on the old image...

after some more gaming through evilution today I decided to do the starry sky again. something about the galaxy seemed off.
the nebula is great but the form of that galaxy seemed a little jarring... (call it nostalgia?)

so I did a new version with a heavily edited galaxy of the original artwork from team tnt...

I'm rather pleased with it.

I did another version with smaller celestial phenomena because variety is nice...

Thanks dynamo. I've not done anything doom related for what seems like an age nowadays. But these skies are something I recently felt I really needed to come back to in hindsight.
I came to this decision when I went to play some evilution with major-crisis a couple of days back. All my other tall/tileable sky texture packs for iwads are mostly faithful to the originals where at all possible (tudoom, d2 and plutonia) but untill now my tnt sky pack had some quite utterly anomalous skies that had no business being in the pack at all to be honest.
In truth it's only because I had been unable to do truly faithful skies for tnt part one and two untill now. (As for part three, tnt's red sky tiles beautifully as it is, so I've intentionally left that as is.)

OK I'm still not quite 100% happy with sky1 so I've made this:

this is the final(?) version of tnt sky1 I think I'm likely to do.
its obviously based on the tnt hellsky but this time I feel I got the colour match for tnt's sky 1 spot on. the other one I did was too dark, over contrasty and in general the colours did not blend as well...
with this I replaced each colour one at a time in mspaint as I kept getting it wrong in slade... although it looks a bit over-tiley here it is in fact ok when viewed in-game behind the mountains.
Also I think that due to it being based on the tnt hellsky it blends in not just in colour but also in form.

decided to play a bit more with skies in the doom palette today.
did some red stuff and some pink skies (inspired by quake).
I put it all on this sheet with my brown and grey skies so they're all together... (didn't bother to put the tht ones i did over the few posts above on it cos, you know, they're above and you can find them there... :roll: )

Oh and I should add that as far as I'm concerned as far as permission of use; yes they're all ok to be used in whatever project you choose! please do!

Those red clouds are gorgeous. I think I'll try something with those after work. Might be perfect for a seaside-sunset-map.

Yes. Must mention that the big fluffy force-perspective clouds texture in red and pink originally come from mechadon as well. Forgot to say that above. They were his grey/brown/orange sky from tht; threnody...
