annabat: question: does everything in the entry have to be "realistic"? or just the fire part? ( 5 years and 1971 days ago )
Lamantine: @ anna -- it's up to you to decide , if all your work is realistic, you might get more marks but if only the fire is realisitic , i think you will get less marks, but a realisitic surrounding is optional, i guess ( 5 years and 1971 days ago )
annabat: hehe, I mean that if say something like a fairy showed up...? (not going to make a fairy entry) but that's what I meant by realistic. ( 5 years and 1970 days ago )
Lamantine: why not ? only the fire should be realistic and surreal scenes with fire are on theme ( 5 years and 1970 days ago )
iquraishi: hey people.. my entry in this contest was pulled out.. coz I used a filter option, should keep that in my mind from next time, anyways.. you can have a look at it here. ( 5 years and 1962 days ago )

I've create a new smoke instead of the brush.. I use a black background and draw white lines.. a lot of liquify, motion blur, liquify, fade liquify, blur, other lines, multiply and wrap the leayer with different blends...inverse the final result , put in place and set the layer to multiply mode (5 years and 1969 days ago)

All done in Photoshop.
Had to redo the table and background, seems I hadn't followed the rules. (5 years and 1970 days ago)
