Animating a Flame with Grease Pencil - Blender 2.8

by CG Cookie in Training

In this Grease Pencil mini-course we will be hand animating some 2D cartoon fire!

Join CG Cookie instructor Wayne Dixon learning to create an animated cartoon flame with Grease Pencil and Blender 2.8, including how to use a particle system for blocking out a flame reference, drawing grease pencil lines, coloring, and adding effects

To help ourselves out, we will start by setting up a particle system that will assist us with our flame. Then we begin drawing and manually loop our fire using some animation principals which will make it burn like an eternal flame.

We will use some of the FX modifiers to make our fire glow and add some cartoon smoke. This tutorial is a springboard for you to start creating your own Grease Pencil fire.

Burn, baby, burn! 🔥
