    this looks great. I love the dragon. Fire is such a fun element to play around with in art. Fire and water are the hardest to reproduce but make the best effects.

    I’ve seen many great fire effects in my life, most of them made using Photoshop. Here’s one element that refuses to get cliched. Web designers are still using it to great effects on their sites and I just can’t seem to get enough of them.

    Nice post there. I’m sure that these tuts will help many designers in their attempt to create some really cool effects.

    Hey man, just done the tut for the flaming hair, it’s amazing, it works on so many different effects.
    I tried it on a scared childs face instead of a ecstatic woman, it gives such a completely different feel to it. Amazing.
