    Need suggestion for creating 'whispy smoke'

    chriscatalano Level 1

      Hi All,

       

      I'm trying to figure out a way to create a cartoonish looking whispy smoke. I've played with Trapcode Particular and that creates some very realistic looking smoke, probably too realistic.  I've played with CC Particle World, and also tried painting the smoke and then animated it on with a mask and a stroke set to reveal the original based on the mask.  Nothing really gets close to what I'm looking for.  Here's a sample of the client's original art:

      Any suggestions for how to achieve this?

       

      Thanks,
