Up in smoke by horizonred Up in smoke by horizonred
Finally completed this picture of my friend Makarand from an old pic. Drew this on Flash as usual with four layers. Took a while to think of a cool background this time and I like how it turned up!

This is a work of art using smoking, not a promotion of advertizement to get people to smoke. Good job!

The smoking controversy in art is a pet peeve of mine. Bleh! It's a good piece :)

Thanks. There were probably some songs by the doors or pink floyd playing in the background, back when this pic was taken.

Smoking is so cool, dude. You should smoke until you can't smoke no more. Thanks for providing me with the message by making this a Daily Deviation, DeviantArt! :D

"smoke until you can;t smoke no more"

know why?
cause you'll die sooner by smoking tobacco.

You should all stop freaking out over the fact that it has smoking in it.

It's a beautiful piece.
Well deserved DD.
Go complain about the random, half-assed DDs, would ya?

I think the reason is because a lot of smokers saw it and liked it / related enough to agree it should be a DD.
I agree with you.
I really like the colours and the angle and all that, but I'm sure there's a more deserving piece out there.

Thanks. I made this on Flash. Made transparent layers for the smoke and specs. The background took me a while to think up, but it turned out well.

Thanks Anna. Hah, nope, the ash never fell on his face. He just sat there, waiting for the cigarette to finish without moving a bit!
