How to Make an Anime-Style Fire Shader in Blender

Kristof Dedene shows how to create a shader network that offers anime-style fire in Blender.

Blender’s shader editor is a great place to build shaders. It offers a great user experience with connecting nodes and provides a wide range of nodes for any purpose. This new tutorial from Kristof Dedene shows how you can harness Blender’s shader nodes to create anime-style fire in Blender.

Noise, Animation, and Other Tricks.

The tutorial covers creating a fire shader from scratch, starting with Voronoi noise, and building it out into something much more complex, step by step. Dedene uses Akira fire as a reference and gets pretty close using only procedural methods in Blenders Shader Editor. You can download the scene files and the shader for this tutorial here.
