Note: Updated because the silly PDF previewer showed my gradiant-coloured fonts as black (wtf?) -_-' it should look a LOT better now.



:wave: Here it is! A short tutorial on how to paint fire, a technique I used when painting this:

Those who favour fire by Imaliea

Calling it version 1.0 for now :D I hope this helps!

If there's anything you'd like clarified, let me know. I've got a backlog of over 6,600 messagse to sort through (and I appreciate every one!!), so it may take me a little bit to respond to everyone's comments - rest assured I will read them all, it just takes me a while since I don't get a lot of DA time. But eventually I WILL answer all questions.

If you've got an important question though, please Note me instead.

Thanks to everyone who expressed an interest in this tutorial - enjoy!

I have no word to tell you how much I love this.
I'm afraid I'm not as good as you, but it helped a lot while I was drawing this piece: synaes-tea-sia.deviantart.com/…
Thank you! =)

Incredible. I thought this is a photo at first. You know how to paint hyper-realistic :)

Thank you.  I can't seem to get that soft brush you are getting.  I have my "Brush Tip Shape" size > 9px, angle > -16, roundness > 40, hardness > 0, spacing > 1%, "Size Jitter" > Control > Fade, "Angle Jitter" > Control > Pen Pressure, "Airbrush" and "Smoothing".  I get stuck on Step Three.  I have trouble replicating what I see in the picture provided
