How to Paint Fire by Imaliea

Yikes it's been too long again >_< but finally I finished this! Seriously this started as a random drawing of wings and just... exploded o.o Only reason it took this long was because I kept changing everything lol but at last it's done! Enjoy!

I learned a lot painting this, namely 1) fire is hard to paint and 2) I like to torture myself by painting the very things I find hard to paint (fire, hands, tricky light sources). Which is I suppose a good thing, only way I'll get better. :D I was attempting to loosen up my painting a bit, but not sure how well I succeeded ^^;

There's a few meaningful things in here but I won't explain it, I'll just leave it for you to draw your own conclusions from :) I'm curious to see what people pick up

As usual I will submit to clubs and such when I get time...

Technical Info
Photoshop/Painter combo, best of both worlds :D
Also many male models were ogled in preparation for this - all in the name of art, I swear.
Title is from Robert Frost poem, Fire and Ice.

PS Might I also add, this one makes a pretty groovy wallpaper if I do say so myself.

J adore votre image et souhaiterais savoir si vous vendez les droits pour que je puisse l'utiliser pour la cover d'un livre et à quel prix ?

Merci de votre réponse 😊

This is absolutely spectacular!

it seems that someone copied your art:

God of Fire... by HellKobra
I have found someone who has actually used this exact image saying it is their work... if you need the proof I can show and provide it to you if you need it.

As I am looking up similar works to a muse I am following, I find this and hun... your works are and have been all over the internet and FB for years. :(  Looks like it's not as bad as it used to be.... but here is just a simple google image search... sorry for the long url...… but you can find sites this way illegally using your art.... another work that has been stolen and is very popular is this fan art one: Blizzcon 2011: Diablo 3 Tyrael by tobylewin

This reminds me of the Mocking Jay pin in Catching Fire. The guy is the Mocking Jay and hes on fire and the circle is the pin. If this artwork was meant to be just that then Im gonna feel stupid lmao. But anyways phenomenal work!
