I first read about Paint.NET in Wikipedia. They also had a link to the Tutorials section. Seeing some of the neat things you could do with little effort is what got me hooked on the program. The fire effect is the first one I've tried out.

I'm not a graphic artist, just someone dabbling in all of this, but I think my first creation turned out pretty well. What do you think?


It's supposed to represent an object streaking through the clouds, like a meteorite or a sci-fi ship. I guess if I wanted to be really precise, i could have created some kind of fireball in a separate layer and added it to the front of the white streak, but I just wanted to play around with this tutorial for now.

This looks an awful lot like a flame thrower! With some modding that would make a great effect!

The flame thrower might be kind of complicated. I created the line using the gradient tool, I think. It's been a while since I did it but I remember that it was pretty easy to do. One of the mods or programmers on the first page of this tutorial suggested playing around with some of the tools.

I'm trying to put together another picture that approximates a savage windstorm. Maybe if I use different colors in the Curves tool.
