Yay first time participating!
I was inspired by this beautiful drawing and decided to create a dragon’s breath for a fairy dragon!
Here 's the inspiration: https://www.deviantart.com/alviaalcedo/art/Magical-orb-694886278
Here’s the final result
I got a lot of people helping me and supporting me through the creation of this effect. Shout-out to @Nibilli for helping all the time, @jasonkey for the feedback and the suggestions on the flames and smoke, @hadidjah for encouraging me to improve the feedback, the other students of the VFXApprentice course for sitting it through with me and last but not least Harmonie for suggesting the final color palette! Thank you so much!

I worked on this for a full day and got to this point, but I’m not entirely satisfied by the core flipbook for the fire, of which I’ll post more progress pictures later.
