well, i was kinda hoping that the artists here would gather all their photoshop tricks as to make things burn and go up in smoke, or at the very least PM me a short tutorial.

Well what does that mean?

What do you think we are? Vendor machines? I feel rather insulted...ACTUALLY...

well, to be more specific, i'm trying to render trails of flames that slowly turn into black smoke. i think i can do it, but i can't seem to find the right brush that will let me do this quickly.

EDIT

kinda like this: http://www.ryanchurch.com/ryanchurch_image001.htm

you need the Studio Professional version of Painter that has the smoke-trails in the presets aka "Ryan Church" brush packages. ive seen it bundled before, and its fantastic!

1) Observe real smoke and fire in videos, photos, in real life..etc.

2) Learn how to use the brushes in your chosen painting software effectively.

3) Refer to your observation material in #1, and then try to paint something like it.

4) If you don't know how to paint in the first place, then that's something you need to work on, and it takes a lot of time and practice and observation. It usually takes years for someone to get goodat it.

Well actually, try working with the coloursampler too, you pick some colours for the fire of the image itself, then use those to paint in flames. then slowly overpaint with the smoke colour, afterwards you could blend light colours into the smoke. while blending you'll probably find some colours you want to use elsewhere in the smoke, so keep that itchy finger on the alt buton,

I've had a site recommended to me for all sorts of brushes, I think it was www.creativemac.com something like that. Probably something useful for clouds works best.

't was a fun encounter my friend. I do so love nibbling quarters.
