This was done about 2 years ago. I was trying to learn smoke effects by using Maya Fluids during my free time. Turned out it's not easy to get what I want and I was running out of time. I had to use a lot of comp tricks (as you can see obviously) to achieve the look I want.. And I ended up learning a lot of comp tricks in After Effects. Haah, well, it's a fun learning process. Hope you like it!
