Photoshop SMOKE Portrait


In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to create a smoke flowing, artistic portrait. Along the way, I demo how to create a brush in Photoshop.

Fun Fact: I was doing this tutorial and was near the end. The image I created looked AWESOME then a dialog box popped up telling me the recording had crashed and my screen recording software closed. I lost the recording and had to start over. The second attempt recorded fine but my resultant image stinks. This is one of those Photoshop techniques that will give you a different look every time you do it.
