Hey guys, so what you have to know about making fire? 
Done in Paint tool SAI 
0. First, choose dark background , you dont have to but fire really looks better in night time :D 
1. First step, chose sharper brush, its up to you which one, but sketch should be fine, chose basic (orange) color for the fire 
2. Second step - create new layer with luminosity setting, you know thats my favorite setting :D use brigther color then the basic one :) and make it glow
3. use water brush, and smudge it little bit :)the setting of these brushes is not really important  , just be gentle and dont push to hard
4. again create new layer with luminosity setting,  use more brighter color and make it glow more 
5. create another new luminosity layer and chose almost white color but in yellow tone, inside of fire make it glow with (almost white strokes) 
6. Last step is done in Adobe Photoshop, use vivid colors setting, or color dodge  for the brush ,and select some sparkle, or dust brush to add these little details :) 
Done :) easy right?:) enjoy! Have a wonderful day guys!

Thank you for sharing this tutorial! Helps me a lot!
By the way, Just to let peeps who has Sai V2.0, the luminosity setting is called Shine. There is a setting on Sai 2 that's called luminosity too but it doesn't have the same effect.

Thanks again dude!

I tried it in Firealpaca but I was totally lost! I don't think the smudge brush does much justice. Yours is so amazing! I love the style!

By any chance, do you know if any of the layer settings in Medibang Paint Pro would match the Luminosity setting in Paint Tool SAI?

Lighten works really well! Also if you don't have photoshop I suggest using the sparkle brush. I've tried it before, and it worked really well. :)
