Designer Shangning Wang put together this amazing hand draw illustration for the Chinese rock band Chino's Album cover. This project aims to demonstrate and visualize Chinos’ songs. The theme of this album is “dreams and fairy tale”.

Instead of removing a chunk of the face and replacing it with a smoke form, it may work to keep the face as a whole and add a smoke texture upon the face and proceeding of the top of the head to create this smoking effect.
