What program are you using?
If there is a transparency setting to the brush you are using, try using that :)

Then try experimenting with different shades of red, yellow and orange, start with red in the middle, like you have, and shade lighter outwards - do a google image search for flame references for example. With transparency you can blend the colors together more. Or you could use the smudge and blur tools, but I don't recommend that.

If you have photoshop, you can use these brushes:

Save the brushes and open them in PS, go EDIT > Define Brush.

With them you can create a kind of base, go from dark to light. Take a nice, dark red/burgundy, and build up brighter reds and oranges. If you know how, you can also try using a little bit of colour dodge for the centre of the fire, and the Overlay blending mode (try light red, yellow, or middle orange on that) to give the fire extra richness.

Smudge tool is really handy for fire, especially if you use a dotted brush, or a really small one (if you don't have PS). If you put your fire on different layers, you can also use the eraser tool to make some neat shapes. Don't forget fire has little glowy embers and such, that's always fun.

Thanks you guys.

back to working on Koil. I've picked up some new skills(like 2) in that time away from her so she should turn out to be better. oh and Starlitdragon thanks again for the brushes I've worked out how to use them and they look great.

and Thalar thanks again for the advice.

Guess what else she's grown*hint himt*
just having a little fun.
notice the much better looking fire, however while I studied fire, I forgot about the glowing and reflectings and light...
working simultaneously with Koil and a page of my own comic.

this pic is now, like, 70% done.

Koil: "Is that....sorcery?"

Star: "...I think he drew you using sorcery..."

Koil: "Should I kill him?"
