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*

So what do you mean by 'soft brush'?? For that did you just lower the density or what?

Yeah, lower the density and add blending or just use the watercolor tool, works too.
