Smoking can kill but smoke effects in artworks can enhance the quality of the work far too much. I remember when I was in junior school, our teacher taught us to create these smoke effects in our art class. She told us to take a thread, dip it in water colors of our choice and then put the thread on a white sheet of paper. Then fold the paper to half such that the thread remains inside and only a small edge of the thread is left out. Then by pressing the sheet with one hand we were supposed to pull the thread out of the sheet. On opening the page we found a strange yet beautiful pattern of color streaks all around the page.

Today with the help of computers and software’s like Photoshop it is possible to draw such pictures and even far better ones with just a few clicks of a button. Even better methods exist where you can mix a real image with the artificially designed ones. For example take a look at the image number four below named Quit Smoking. There some parts of the human body and a jeans are mixed with wreaths of smoke which has enhanced the quality of the image.

I have collected many others also below. All in all there are 30 beautiful smoke effects in artworks collected below.
