Fire Tutorial by Chiakiro Fire Tutorial by Chiakiro
EDIT: Fixed the instructions on step 2 and added some other things too. It should work better now.

I don't usually do tutorials, but I found this fire with its layers still existing that I had done maybe over a year ago and thought why not to make a tutorial out of it. x) Hope it helps someone.

Thank you very much this will help me a lot with a character I am working on.  Edit: Omg thank you again the flames came out great. I had to use glow instead of lume, which is weird to find my program doesn't have that lol. But hey the glow worked just fine. Thanks again.

What do you mean by density? Opacity? Flow?

rebreb21 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Density is how hard or soft the brush stroke will appear on-screen. Opacity is how light or dark the brush stroke will be. Not sure about flow.

The brush's opacity I guess if that makes sense? I'm not sure how it is in other programs than SAI.

How would you suggest painting objects within the fire, like hands or wands?

I got stuck on step 2. It's lacking description and whenever I try to make the holes it comes out blotchy and disgusting.

this is great! This is the only tutorial that I found which is merciful to us mouse users! SO COOL! I prefer to do the outline/glow of the fire last instead of first simply because the shape of the fire changes as you progress through. :)

Man, this helps out a lot! Of course, I have to alter the technique a bit though since the art program I use doesn't have a few things. Faving for future reference~

Thanks , though mine didn't look that good. When I used the eraser, well.. Horrible. And that almost last part, using that white color, how your strokes don't have those white brush stripes gritoplz
