14 Bring in ac­tion cues to push the mood

ImagineFX - - In Depth Concept Art -

For even more depth and mood, I add ac­tion cues like smoke at Geiko’s feet. I use the Lasso tool to cre­ate the shape of the smoke, tak­ing into ac­count the wind di­rec­tion that may tilt it slightly. I do this quickly to cap­ture the mo­tion, in­stead of lin­ger­ing on it too long and mak­ing it too re­fined. Once I fill in my se­lec­tion, to make it ap­pear more like smoke I re­duce the Opac­ity and use a mask to blend out spe­cific parts even more, let­ting the back­ground el­e­ments pop through.
