Artificial Fire - Paint.NET by Ghost-Dreamer Artificial Fire - Paint.NET by Ghost-Dreamer
Here's the promised tutorial on making artificial fire, the tutorial was written for Paint.NET as that is the software that I use but I'm fairly certain this is transportable to Photoshop and possibly even GIMP.

For a life sample, I used the fire as a background to Dante's Inferno

Feedback, questions, comments, post below. If you use it to make something that you upload to dA, I'd appreciate a link as well.

Cheers,


Ghost

What if I don't want my flames to be on a black background?

Ghost-Dreamer Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2010
You may have figured this out in the mean time (I've been gone from the site for a while), if you want your flames on a different background, simply select a different primary colour before or after selecting the gradient tool (do it before drawing the gradient itself). Similarly, you can right click on any colour to set that colour as your alternative secondary colour so as to add further diversity to the background colours (and flame colours).

Extremely helpful! I've been wondering how to make nice-looking flames... This tutorial is perfect! I love Paint.net and want to know how to fully use it to the best of its abilities.

I'll test it out and let you know how it works.

Really good.
here is a flames plugin for PDN that crates a simmilar effect but i think these flames look more realistic

Ghost-Dreamer Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2009
Sorry for the late response.

I had no idea there was a plugin for this effect, I'll have to see if I can find it on the PdN site. Hope the tutorial was useful for you :D
