Fire Tutorial for SAI by RayCrystal Fire Tutorial for SAI by RayCrystal
Update on Sept 1st 2013: I remade the tutorial almost completely because the old one kinda sucked. If anyone is interested about the old version it's here: i.imgur.com/VrFRPVE.jpg
Since I get asked about which tool I used a lot, this improved version is done with the basic brush tool.



Whew :faint: tutorials are hard to make...

Anyway, when ~Rustic-Moonlit-Rose commented that the fire in raycrystal.deviantart.com/art/… looks amazing I said that tutorials could help her but she said that there aren't any for Sai really and I noticed that too so I thought I could make one since I like drawing fire :P

So yeah... I hope it's good :)

By the way, I used the watercolor tool (like I always do).
Since people are asking about it, the settings I use are 0 for blending, 50 for dilution, 80 for persistence.


EDIT: Holy f--- O_O I wake up in the morning and what do I find...? 2000 faves!!! +40 watchers more :o I thought this would get around my usual 200... thank you so much guys :D

EDIT2: ...omg. A DD? I can't believe it, oh my god thank you so much!!!! O_O *does not know what to say*

What is a "Luminosity" layer? Is it program specific?

Luminosity is a layer mode which you can choose from a drop box usually near the layers in the program. There are layer modes in at least Sai, Gimp and Photoshop, I'm not sure about other programs ^^;
