How do you make Fog/Mist?


Recommended Posts

This is my first time asking for help on these forums. My question is How do you make a fog or mist effect? I'm working on a Batman avitar and I want some fog at his feet and in the background. So how do you make something like that? Either leave a full tutorial or if there is already one elsewhere leave a link. Thanks for the help. :D

You are in luck. I've done this many times.

1. Set your primary color to black and your secondary to black.

2. Make a new layer on the top of your current image.

3. Go to render > clouds (you can keep the settings at default.

4. Set the blending mode of the layer to screen.

5. Select the gradient tool and set it to transparency mode.

6. Start your gradient from the bottom of your image to where you want the top of the mist to end.

Hope this helps. :wink:

I just noticed I made a typo. Set your secondary color to WHITE.

Sorry. ;)

It still looked like it worked with black but I'll try white too.

It should look better. The white part of the cloud will be the mist.

Yeah they both work but the Black and White is better.
