Create a smoke effect in CorelDraw

Many times I used smoke effect to create an attractive designs, I searched on net about smoke effect for corel, just because I want to find more easy way to create this effect,  but can’t satisfied with other tutorials. So I am inspired to write this tutorial. In this tutorial you will learn how to create a smoky effect in Corel Draw X5.

Final Image :

Smoky Effect 14

STEP 1 : Background

Open a new blank document in CorelDraw. Draw a rectangle with RECTANGLE TOOL. Select it and applied black (or any dark color). This is our background.

STEP 2 : Draw lines

Now chose a FREEHAND TOOL and draw a line anywhere like shown in below screenshot. Draw two three more lines.

 Smoky Effect 3

 

STEP 3 : ARTISTIC MEDIA TOOL

Select all lines that you draw in step 2. Chose an ARTISTIC MEDIA TOOL, select category calligraphy and  Chose BRUSHSTROKS both are marked as an arrow in below screenshot.

STEP 4 : Applying Color

Now apply any light color on your lines.
Smoky Effect 6

STEP 5 : OUTLINE PEN TOOL

Make sure that all lines were selected. Chose OUTLINE PEN TOOL remove outline by clicking on NO OUTLINE.
Smoky Effect 7

STEP 6 : Converting Vector in bitmap

Put your lines on our dark background which we made on 1st STEP. In the next step you have to apply blur your lines, but you cant blur vector lines. So we have to convert all lines group object into bitmap. Follow these steps to convert it into bitmap. (Make sure all lines were selected).
TOP MENUBAR > BITMAPS > CONVERT TO BITMAP
You can chose DPI also in coming up next little window. Your Brushed lines are converted into bitmap now.
 Smoky Effect 9

STEP 7 : Blur bitmap image

To create a smoky effect, you have to blur your lines bitmap image. Follow these steps.
TOP MENUBAR > BLUR > GAUSSIAN BLUR
Smoky Effect 10
In coming up next small window, you can set Blur radius, For best result set it around 20.
Smoky Effect 11

STEP 8 : Apply Ripple Distort

Now follow these steps to add some ripple effect on your lines bitmap image.
TOP MENUBAR > BITMAPS > DISTORT > RIPPLE
Smoky Effect 12
In coming up next small  window Period and amplitude to give a wave effect.
 Smoky Effect 13
Your smoke effect is ready now.
Done !!!
You can use this trick on texts also. You have to Break apart of text and also convert into curve.

What i don't realize is in reality how you're no longer really a lot more well-appreciated than you might
be right now. You're so intelligent. You understand therefore considerably in relation to this subject, made me personally consider it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women are not involved except it's one thing
to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs great.
At all times maintain it up!
