How to make smoke @sniffum

By jk3 things

Made with paper

Was recently asked how I made steam or smoke
Here is a quick way.
So easy and awesome with the blur feature with pencil
Start with a black or white background
I like to use a bright white pencil and turn the blur feature off
Just start sketching your smoke or steam and try to get the shapes as fluid as possible. There is no order to this. I then turn the blur feature on and use my finger to lightly smudge the lines and strokes. Like you would do if you were smudging paint or real pencil on a canvas.
To get a dimensional effect just repeat the process over again to create depth. Also as a finishing touch use the pen tool to create darker lines and then smudge.

Also on black backgrounds you can add color later by using the water color brush over your white smoke. or just pick the color of your choice to do the same technique.

Hope this was helpful@sniffum

Hey! If you enjoy reading a book intact, without searching for the next consecutive page number, then Please consider helping my cousin out who is over seas and has to deal with material that is wore out and that is outdated. She is teaching an English class who’s books have words we only see when reading the KJV of the bible or old English literature. Please help her out if you are financially able to. There should be instructions at the end of the video where you can go and donate. Thanks!
