[GFX]Creating Smoke With Photoshop  


1 - Create some Shapes: I created some random shapes.



2 - Apply a Gaussian blur on each shape



3 - Using the liquify filter



4 - Positioning the shapes



5 - Adding some colors

Add a background color on the layer of the shape, otherwise the Hue/Saturation won't work


6 - Creating a cloud behind the smoke

Set a feather with a high value, like 40 to 80, and after that apply the hue/saturation on the cloud too


7 - Adding a gradient to create an atmosphere

The gradient will give a atmosphere and more depth to the image


Final Result


The whole process took me about 30 to 40 minutes tops, it’s pretty simple, although it can be quite hard to create a natural smoke with the liquify filter, the best thing to do is to play with the brushes and with the tools to achieve the desired effect.
