So last time I went on a Youtube binge, I ended up drawing Vio and trick archery, this time it’s Red and fire poi. (Parkour!Shadow will probably happen eventually. And I need to come up with cool things for Blue and Green to do…)
The method that I used for the fire poi drawings requires a black background, so it might not work for all situations, but I’d be happy to show you regardless!
Basically, I need at least three layers:
1.) A bright, bright, brightly saturated gradient, set to overlay. In this case I went from yellow, through orange and red, and even to pink a bit at the bottom, but you can use whichever colors you’d like the fire to be.
2.) A transparent layer (or layers) to sketch on with white. I used a brush with 50-60% opacity.
3.) Pure black background layer.
For the fire poi, I created a smeary sort of shape - white on one end, fading out in the direction it’s been traveling.
Then I selected a jagged, crackly, “fire shape” with the selection tool, and filled it with white.
