Torches

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple quick pen sketches I did today of weird torches. Use them for inspiration, or don't use them; I care not. Use them for actual torch designs, or just for creating bronze sculptures/ornamentation, or nothing; again, I care not.

 

I was talking to my ex on the phone when I subconsciously drew the first one, so maybe there was some chaos in my brain that came out as fire on paper. I just "went with the flow" for the 2nd torch.

 

Disregard that strange anomaly at the top of the first one's flame -- it was part of a different sketch (see bottom-most image below to maybe help see what was going on there):

Thanks guys :) You know, I never really liked the flame in my colorized version before. (Didn't spend much time on it.) So I messed around with the flame more tonight. An artist's work is never done :)

 

Here's the revised torch. Only the flame has changed, Click here for larger version of this torch.

Cool photoshop effects!

 

Try also using different sized brushes of the smudge tool (if you have a tablet), it works really well for making fire effects. The tablet pen allows for pressure sensitivity with the smudge tool, if you use a mouse it won't work so well though.

Excellent tip! Will try ;) I'm always down with a 'helpful hint' regarding Photoshop tools.
