How to Paint Fire by Imaliea

Yikes it's been too long again >_< but finally I finished this! Seriously this started as a random drawing of wings and just... exploded o.o Only reason it took this long was because I kept changing everything lol but at last it's done! Enjoy!

I learned a lot painting this, namely 1) fire is hard to paint and 2) I like to torture myself by painting the very things I find hard to paint (fire, hands, tricky light sources). Which is I suppose a good thing, only way I'll get better. :D I was attempting to loosen up my painting a bit, but not sure how well I succeeded ^^;

There's a few meaningful things in here but I won't explain it, I'll just leave it for you to draw your own conclusions from :) I'm curious to see what people pick up

As usual I will submit to clubs and such when I get time...

Technical Info
Photoshop/Painter combo, best of both worlds :D
Also many male models were ogled in preparation for this - all in the name of art, I swear.
Title is from Robert Frost poem, Fire and Ice.

EJW (me). No stealing or using without permission.

PS Might I also add, this one makes a pretty groovy wallpaper if I do say so myself.

For future use, is what I check to see if my work has been yanked out from under me. As you said, this one's been pilfered to no ungodly end. Sorry!

Wow that is a GREAT resource, I had no idea about it. Thanks for sharing!! And yeahhhhh I think I give up on this one. Good to know it's so popular I guess though!! And at least some of them left my signature on... hahahaha

It's not particularly well known (tin eye that is) but extremely useful for tracking down those thieving bastards. I'd go after the ones making a profit, like the book cover jobber. Maybe you can recoup some losses. Nice work by the way! =D 
VERY handsome!
