How to start a fire with Paint.NET

Recommended Posts

I rate this tutorial as "immensely useful". If I had some sort of authority to back that up with, that would probably mean more...

I felt mildly destructive, so I used this effect and made this:

I discovered how to make a cool explosion. You have to start out with a circular Gradient. Just before you mess with Curves, Invert the picture.

Kinda like this?

Thats still really good, it's more like when a fire dies down and you get that sort of look uno.

i like it. mine came out worse than that, i couldn't get curves right so it was red :?

wow, the flame tut really saved me on my design. If it wasn't for you I would be having to use some awkward stock photo :)

and you might not be able to see much, but trust me, you gotta look closer.

I used this tutorial to make a flame like text, only mine needed too look more like a cloud of electricity or static. I then made a background in photoshop using some basic meathods such as the noise filter for stars, adjusting contrast and drop off, and later adding a hazy nebula effect using clouds and clouds negative. There are two cloud layers, and they fade of at the edges of the screen for effect. This is now my splash page for http://www.zennovations.net

Ok I like this tut, but is there a way to do it without the black background? I mean I want to make fire coming out of a dragons mouth and the black looks weird...

You could use the screen effect in photoshop... idk about Paint.net

Basically it will remove anything that is black in the layer, so if you want black to be transparent just applay this to the layer with clouds or the finnished effect.
