Thanks a lot Roger for your time.
Unfortunately the cloudy structure is still 2D. My problem is not how to insert a 2D plot in a 3D graphics (as you showed very nicely) but rather how I construct mathematically an actual 3D structure that looks like a cloud. 
Is there any algorithm producing a distribution of points (x,y,z) (maybe based on a random number generator) or a continuous surface f(x),f(y),f(z) resembling that of a cloud e.g.

Thanks a lot,
