I had a lot of fun drawing out this next tutorial because it was so easy, and the coloring was simple too. There is many ways you can use flames in your works of art, but what if you want to "draw a flame" instead of a bunch of flames? Fire is one of the hardest things to replicate especially when you are going for a realistic look. I have not yet made a tutorial for realistic flames, but I will soon enough. The great thing about this interpretation of a fiery flame, is you can actually use it to create a tribal flame for a cool looking tattoo, or design for other reasons. Anyways, there really isn’t anything too it when it comes to drawing flames or a flame. In this case I’ve included a series of different shaped flames that can be used for all sorts of things like a fireplace, a camp fire, a burning building, or even an exploding mass of some sorts. When you "draw a flame", you might also want to include some hints of smoke, and patchy areas of sparks. No matter what you choose to do with your fire, I’m sure whatever you draw will turn out looking great. Anyway, I have blaze out of here because there is much, much more that I have yet to submit. So peace out people, and have a happy drawing day.
