Halo everything,

I would like to know how to make the effect in 04-05sec of the following video.

The smoke(?) fade in on the face,
the smoke is very smooth and like real painting stroke! (the shape of the stroke is very clear for every movement cause I think could I use the opacity to make it, but seems not that simple lol.... ) how to make it??

Please kindly tell me if you know it :) thanks so much!

Is this what you are after? Where it looks like the images comes on from paint or smoke?
