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.

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

I found this tutorial very helpful, thank you so much. I tried to use it for blue fire, and I'm not sure if the result is flawed, or if blue fire simply is brighter in on that aspect. Either way, it turned out well, thank you! :)

From what I've seen, blue fire is rather lighter and has more white light compared to normal fire. That could be it...

Yes, If I recall.. it's a hotter flame too.
