On Firefox, at least, if you right click the image and click "View Image" it will load the image alone in the window, resizing to fit the screen if necessary. Granted, you will lose some IQ from the browser resizing, but at least you can get the effect of the image.
These are nice attempts. The second works much better than the first I think. I think it would be even more successful of you could smudge the smoke into the skin a bit where they overlap. Nice job though! :thumbup:
