In this Flame Tutorial, I will explain the use of basic Photoshop shapes to create a life like flame. It is a single flame rather than a raging fire. You will start with a custom shape and after a few simple steps finish off with repeated use of warp transform to give that typical random like flame effect.
We start out with a flower shape which you can find in the Custom Shapes dropdown box. Set the background to black, and use red to fill the shape with:
Go for an outer glow of 25px, and an inner glow of 51px and 75% opacity as shown here:
Then, group the layer as a smart object and rasterize so you can, Filter > Distort > Ripple (With size Medium and Amount 617%)
Finally use Edit > Transform > Warp to alter the shape. I try warping like this to start with:
After a few times warping, apply the warp and do it again. You end up with a flame like this:
And that’s it completed. Hope you enjoyed this Flame Tutorial.
