Fire Tutorial by Anuwolf Fire Tutorial by Anuwolf
:bulletred::bulletred:CONFUSED????? NOT WORKING?? FIRE NOT TRANSPARENT????? Check out this add-on tutorial that may help with your transparency issues! anuwolf.deviantart.com/art/Fir… :bulletred::bulletred:





Oh wow a DD! Thankyou so much! First time I've been on dA in a while so this is a surprise, I found out kind of late, 2 days later. Nice way to start the new year! xD And please excuse the silly language / overuse of emotes in the tutorial. I was younger back then, and more prone to excessive emoting >>


I found out this technique a couple days back and find it to be extremely useful. I thought you guys deserved to know about it too :P I wasn't sure if someone else had a fire tut like this one up, so if there is... sorry? xD

welllll... so it kinda worked... the only things I struggle with is the smudging part. I guess I'm just bad at it or something because it never turns out right. I can't manage to get more of the grey and most of it is black and white with a just a little grey around the edges. plus my edges never seem to get the correct pointyness of a flame and seems to round or to sharp.

I'm so distraught at how well this works ONLY if the background is entirely black and you have ONLY the fire there by itself. I'm trying to figure out how to use this as part of a complete image, but without the plain black background, this doesn't work at all. If I wanted to use this method for anything other than JUST the fire by itself, how do I do that? I tried changing the layer type to Screen as mentioned in the tutorial, but then the black still stays instead of becoming transparent, like I need it to be. I tried having the black on a separate layer and then making the adjustments, but then when I get rid of the black layer, the fire just becomes one off-white color again, regardless of its layer type.

All I need is the fire, and I need the black background GONE, and I can't have both using this method. So unless there's a way to do that and I'm just not figuring it out, this tutorial is actually rather useless. And that's sad, because this method is a LOT easier than most, and at first I was really glad I found it... Now I just feel like I wasted a bunch of time for nothing.

Instead of using this on one solid background, you can add a layer.
I had two layers.
One was black and I used it just to see how it goes, and the other was a "Working layer" where I did everything as in the tutorial.
After I was satisfied with the result, I just deleted the bottom Black layer, and saved it as .PNG XD

Squigmunks Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's because it's on a different layer.
You have to keep the white ON the black layer.
If you're doing everything on one layer, though, I'm not sure what you could be doing wrong.
