Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding volcano smoke, part of Digital Matte Painting: 1 Concept.
Now let's add some smoke coming out of the volcanoes.…First make a new layer, make sure it's on top of the mountains layer and call this…one volcano smoke. Open up the Brush window and chose the…Cloud Dynamic brush. Select a dark intense red color for the smoke.…Then starting small where the smoke comes out of the mountain, re-size the brush so…that the smoke dissipates out into the atmosphere.…
This Dynamic Cloud brush does most of the work for you because of all the variation…on the brush. The volcano smoke is getting lost in the clouds.…So choose the sky layer, select a big soft brush and glaze in some lighter red behind…the smoke, so that it shows up. There should be some fiery material right…where the smoke comes out of the mountain. So select that Cloud Dynamic brush again…and select a bright yellow-orange color. Make sure you're on the volcano smoke…layer and dab in some of that fiery tone right where it would be erupting from the volcano.…
Select a bright red tone and use that to blend from the yellow to the darker smoke color.…
