Right I have some Silver Helm shields I'm working on and two of them have some small flames at the base, and I want to look as good as I can get. So if anyone has any tips for painting simple flames that would be a big help.
At the base of the flame, it should be yellow. Then work up a darker tone to Orange or Red.
I made really wicked flames on my hellhounds one time. paint the whole area with yellow, paint from the middle to the tips VERY LIGHTLY with orange and then do the tips red. now that looks ok but for 3d good looking flames take an old brush thats bristles are spread apart and ruined adn dip it in the orange and brush most of it off on a tissue and lighlty stroke upward from the bottom of the flames to where the orange begins and it shuold look like the flames arent in one consecutive line. hope this helped
First make the shape of the flames in yellow. DOesn't matter which, depends on what type of flame it is. Dark or light? THen layer up to orange then to red. Try to blend it, but that would be very dificult and it would take ages.
Just always remeber that fire is the oppsite to everything else. It goes from light to dark. So i would use black as the highlight <_< , work up from yellow to orange, red, scab red and then black
