Hi everyone, so im starting a salamander space marine army and would like to know how best to paint the 2D flames, i.e. on the cloak etc.
Thanks for any help and comments.
when painting flames.. remember that the colors are brighter towards the source of the fuel.. IE.. whatever the flame is burning on..
Thus you will be making flames darker towards the edges...
White to yellow to orange blend is the best way.
Thanks i will keep that in mind. How best is it to paint, a gentle blend from colour to colour or just bold changes?
gently from colour to colour, starting with the darkest, then is a question if you want it to look like real fire ore if you want the the look that you ordinary see on a car.
Keep the paint diluted and thin :)
(first rule in Zentradis book of painting)
I usually start with a white base then work up to the darker colors - white - yellow - orange - red. I found this link very useful. At the bottom of the page is a separate link to a step by step process that I simplified for my flames. I hope this helps you.
thanks everyone for the help its been just what i wanted. That link is just the type of thing i was lookign for Chirality.
Yep, link was excellent. Copied to my "Techniques List".
