Fire Tutorial by StarshipSorceress Fire Tutorial by StarshipSorceress
Some people asked me how I did the flames on my Nightmare Unicorn painting, so I thought I'd make a brief tut. Hope it helps someone.

Also, sorry for my poor handwriting XD

Made with Paint Tool Sai. If you use this or found it helpful, please fave. :heart: Also post a link to what you made, I'd love to see it! (:

Questions? Just ask.

Nightmare Unicorn:




EDIT: The lovely ~Egenysh translated this into Russian for you guys!

I've gotta save this for when I find my tablet. I love how your fire *glows*. I feel like that's what separates the good art from the better art.

A-am sorry, I turned it off before I had the chance to save that file...I didn't even think it's important enough to save.:(

Aww dont say that. It's good to save practice work even if you dont like it. Then later you can see how much you improve over time. I save a lot of my old stuff to remind me I am improving even if I sometimes dont feel like I am.

Yeah, even though you submitted it years back, it really helped me in the now. ^o^ Not too many people actually make fire tutorials on how to do it from scratch, I mostly find stock photo manipulations. XD

Yeah, it does, and yay for updates. ^o^ Your technique can change a lot in so many years of time, so an update would reflect that rather nicely. ^^
