I’ve come up with a technique for painting flames for your miniatures that’s quick, easy, and looks great for tabletop quality work. It’s a mix between something stylistic and something realistic, a hybrid of sorts.
The technique does use blending but it’s quick and simple. You’ll be working with thin paints and they’ll blend as you’re applying them so nothing fancy to worry about.
Overall, I’d say this is a really approachable tutorial for anyone of any skill level.
