Step 1:

Start by drawing an tall thin oval like shape like in sample 1. *This will be our guide and our flames will be worked on the inside of it.* Sample 2 shows how the flames can be added.* Just add a few squiggles like Iíve done here in sample 2 but make sure they start at the bottom and work upwards.


Step 2:



Now start to double up your lines like in sample 3.* As you can see in sample 4 the squiggles are starting to look more like flames.

Step 3:

Once your happy with your flames erase the oval guide and all unwanted marks.* Then go over it with a fine line pen or darker pencil and start to add color.


Step 4:



A good tip when coloring is to make the tips of the flames yellow and the very bottom of the flames red.
