My First real edit: I SEE A SPY!

Its my first edit on a picture, i used Paint.NET! but i am going over to gimp soon

Oh, do any one knows a good smoke tutorial for gimp?

If the background is edited its not editing. If you edit a pose you need to get smoke from his sigaret or something.

Isolation is poor.

my smoke making suks, but thats about it of what i could do

Make a new layer and use white 2px brush to make some basic shapes of smoke, then use smudge tool to soften it up

Have you ever seen smoke in real life? From the looks of your edit I’d say you haven’t.

Im sorry to say, but its absolute, downright horrible. The background lines are just thrown here and there, the smoke is looking like someone is burning rubber and his neck looks twisted.
