burnt effect on a layer?
I wanna make a dragon blow fire onto a human then the next image be the person after being attacked by the dragon, how would I make the person layer in the second image look burnt (the dark black burnt effect you see in cartoons and things)

I do not know about cartoons but you could try along the lines of this:

Make a selection of the background and apply a distort to the selection. This has the effect of growing it slightly into the figure.

Invert the selection and fill the figure with a suitable pattern. Java is good, after all it has been roasted Smile.

Remove the selection and apply a motion blur something like this.

You can find the filter at
Filters > Blurs > Motion blur

Did you see this yet?
