So our graphic part is ready: the text part is in the way. I will not explain you a lot about the text work: just look closely and remember that the text should be looking like an object - solid. The entire element should be aligned properly. It is Just a matter of understanding.

It is just a little dot over there to take your attention on the text. And the smoke trail done with smudge tool.

Why do I always have the idea when I go to this site that something is going to be made to look like art but to be honest it's always real shitty. I really don't like this site. Eyesontutorials always shows a shit tutorials. I'm sorry, it's just my opinion
