Smoke illustrations

Some recent experiments have lead me to develop a technique of drawing with smoke. In essence it is a really simple procedure, find image, trace using smoke layers. Creating the smoke layers is really a matter of using the distort filters in photoshop and building up a “smoke screen”. Make a few variations of this to stop any of the shapes becoming too over used. The finishing touches in the wings etc is simply using the smudge tool and warp.
