Embracing mistakes

Sometimes accidents can be good.

When you're working on a piece, going with the flow and not questioning yourself too much about the placement of elements can make for a less stressful project. If you listen closely enough, sometimes the art will even tell you where to go next.

In this tutorial, I'll give you a few tips on how to successfully control smoke images and shape them to fit what you're trying to achieve. I'll also show you how to capitalise on areas in a piece that may have been unintentional and, by doing so, make your process run more smoothly.
