In this screencast we look at how to create realistic-looking rain. It turns out that it’s a lot easier than you might think! The thing is, once I figured out how to do that, I realized that if the surfaces in the image to which I added rain didn’t look wet, then the whole illusion is ruined.

Plus, this technique should easily translate for any image that has flat surfaces.
