In this Photoshop Tutorial we will use stock images, brush, transform tools and text tool to create an anti-smoking poster design. I hope the techniques useful , also the final result gives a clear message and all people can turn the awareness of the danger of smoking into concrete actions.

  • Resources needed:
  • Man LINK
  • Cigarette 1 LINK
  • Cigarette 2 LINK
  • Smoke brushes LINK

 

Final Result Preview:

 

 
 

Step 1:

 

Create a new layer (1200x1000 px) and fill it with white. Add a new layer above background and fill it with Linear Gradient:

 
 

Drag a line from bottom to top we have:

 
 
 

Step 2:

 

Open cigarette 1 stock. Isolate cigarette from background and move into our document, position it as shown below:

 
 

Also move cigarette 2 that is cut out from original and place it on the end of cigarette 1, remember to scale it to fit the size of cigarette 1 :

 
 

Add Layer Mask and use soft black brush to make only the burning end of cigarette 2 remain:

 
 

Create a new layer above cigarette 1 layer with Clipping Mask option, name it "darken cigarette":

 
 
 

Use soft brush, color #767575 to paint on cigarette 1 and set this layer to Multipy 60%:

 
 
 
 

Step 3:

 

Cut man from stock, resize and place him under cigarette (man layer is set under cigarette layers also):

 
 

Now we will fix the light on man's foot:

 
 

Create a new layer, use Clone Tool to paint over this light part:

 
 

Also create a new layer under man layer. Use brush, color #1c1c1c, Opacity and Flow 60-70% to paint under man feet, leg, hand to make shadow for him:

 
 
 

Step 4:

 

Create a new layer between man and cigarette layers:

 
 

Use soft black brush with Opacity and flow 60-70% to make the trace of cigarette pressed on man's back:

 
 
 

Step 5:

 

Create a new layer and set it above Gradient layer in step 1.

 
 
 

Use Retangular Marquee Tool to make a selection under man and cigarette, set feather = 4 and fill it with black. Lower Opacity to 50%, add layer mask to erase it to make it look like cigarette shadow:

 
 
 

Step 6:

 

Make a new layer above cigarette layers. Set foreground to a brown one (i choosed #6a6969) and background to white. They will be the colors of smoke that we will add now. Remember that if you set foreground to white and background color to a brown tone, the result will be totally different.

Grab smoke brush, choose number 2192, 1091,( or any you like) and diameter 490-500 px to paint on top of cigarette:

 
 
 

Step 7:

 

In next steps we will make cigarette ash . Choose layer of cigarette 2 ( that has burning end), use any tool you want to make a selection on it:

 
 

Right click this selection, choose Layer via Copy, then move and transform it as shown below:

 
 

Duplicate this layer twice, transform them to get different motions:

 
 
 

Step 8:

 

Create a new layer, select hard brush, 6 px, color #323130 and give it parameters as screenshots below show:

 
 
 
 
 

Paint under ashes in previous step:

 
 

Right click this layer, choose Blending Options:

 
 

We have result:

 
 
 

Step 09:

 

On a new layer, use brush with same settings in step 8 to make ash on floor (and same layer style):

 
 
 

Step 10:

 

Hide smoke layer temporarily. Choose cigarette 2 layer again, make a selection on its burning end, set feather=0.5 then copy it into a new layer (choose Layer via Copy or use Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste). Move it on man body:

 
 
 

Duplicate it twice and set different motions:

 
 

Merge these three layers. Use Ctrl+Click on the man layer to load his selection:

 
 
 

Ctrl+Shift+I to invert this selection. Press Delete to clear the parts out of man body:

 
 

Change the Mode to Darken 100%:

 
 

You can erase (use Eraser tool or layer mask) this burning effect on any part you don't like.
