Using just smoke and the magic of Photoshop, Kyle Schruder has created a viral portrait of a Stormtrooper sure to be popular with Star Wars enthusiasts and art lovers alike.

Haunting and mind-blowing all at once, it’s a perplexing piece that pays testament to Schruder’s photographic and graphic design capabilities. Titled ‘Smoke Helmet,’ the image is truly haunting and ghost-like. As a viewer, knowing that the photo is so impermanent lends an appealing aspect to the already eye-catching piece. Schruder, who is a graphic designer, is extremely talented and his portfolio is full of similarly augmented takes on reality.

A wonderful take on illusionary art, this Stormtrooper silhouette is a gorgeous appropriation of smoke as an artistic medium.
