Tips For Authoring Flipbooks: Fire

When animating fire frame-by-frame in a program like Krita, a great way to plan and create the basis for your flame's shapes in motion is to create overlapping waves. This method allows you easily see where the breaks in your flame occur, meaning you can plan out how each shape inside your flame will resolve as it dissipates. The more you plan ahead, the fewer headaches you'll run into as your start cleaning up your effect!
