    Here it is! I added more fire. I want to add more around Spider-Man, but since I use the Smudge tool, I don't want to make Spider-Man look blurry. That would just suck.
    Any tips?

    I'm still not finished yet, I still have a few more things to do.

    Any advice?

    Do you have PhotoShop? Do you know what the dodge and burn tools are?

    Burn-Makes colors darker.

    Dodge-Makes colors lighter.




    Thanks for replying.

    you just need to pick a lighting source. in this case, id say the flames give off the glow. so imagine what parts of the bodies are hit by the light from the flames. etc.

    Okay, but it really isn't that simple. Zolland was right, you need to choose a light source/direction and shade in accordance with it. The flames are the obvious choice for light source. Burn and Dodge aren't really the best choice for this though because the light being cast by the flames is not white but more yellow or orange. Try using the brush tool on a very low opacity and flow to paint in yellow highlights were the light is shining on the skin and blueish shadows where it isn't.

    When I do it, it looks like there are yellow lines on the skin, which don't make it look that good. But, I might be able to draw the fire around Spider-Man without using the smudge tool and blurring him up.

    Thanks for the help guys!:):up:

    How's this? I used the thing with the paint brush just a little outside of the Green Goblin's body and that's what I got. The fire got a little covered up though.
    And this isn't the real picture, I have two different ones so I can mess around with the other.

    The lighting is on the Goblin only.

    I hope I can get this done tonight.

    i think that fire would put a much more intense light on him

    I like that, it works. Continue allowing the light to kinda wash out the edge of the figures, then add heavy darks in the center of their bodies. The effect should be cool.

    I like it, but I think you could improve it even more if you went real dark for the shadows on the front of their bodies.

    Any darker and his skin will be black.
    I think in my final picture, I'll leave Spider-Man unshaded because it makes his webs too black.

    You guys are helping out alot, thanks.:)
