Not exactly part of the story, but I did a couple of photomanips of Firestorm, another DC superhero. This was basically an early test to see if I could do the fire effect in Photoshop, and for a first attempt I think these images are okay. I'll be giving this another go at some point, and eventually I may try actually animating Firestorm in some capacity. (just for a test or something - the chance of me adding him to a brickfilm is extremely slim).
I think the thing I need to work on most is my lighting, but that's something that's not exclusive to these images. I could do with investing in some LEDs or something. I'm not a fan of the energy around Firestorm's hands in the second picture, either.
