That's true. The black line is the smoke.
I have created an orange type cursor that has a burning fire appearance. It is called Firegod because it will put your desktop on fire. Spice up your desktop with intense heat of flaming cursors. Now there is a bit of wizardry.
The inspiration came from the user "Chess" who created the "Roaring Flames cursors. You can check out his cursor set here: http://www.rw-designer.com/cursor-set/roaring-flames
The Google images that I have downloaded from the internet to create the Handwriting and Link Select cursors are free to use. There are no contacting abilities to credit or give permission to use the vector hand templates. I did not steal any images for making my two hand cursors. Please understand that.
When I made this cursor set, I did not copy Chess, but used his cursors as an example so that I could make something similar but different. No infringement intended.
The manner that I used to create the Firegod cursor set was to use a dark and light orange colors. When I flood filled the cursors using the fill tool, I used the fill pattern for each frames. There are ten frames for each cursor role. Each frame has the same orange gradients, but different patterns for each frame filled.
For the Handwriting Link Select cursors, I have downloaded and used two different hand templates. The Handwriting hand cursor has an orange animated pencil that changes appearance. The Link Select cursor has a steadily increasing sharpening on each consecutive frame that gives it an animation effect. The sharpening effect add noise to the image the increases by 0.1 per frame.
What I have done to get the Link Select cursor to be orange is to recolor the hand cursor. I did that first before tweaking the other parameters of the image.
Please be aware that to be able to view a preview of the animation effects of this cursor set you must have Google Chrome installed. With Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, you shall not be able to preview the animated cursor icons on this site. Download Google Chrome here: https://www.google.com/chrome/
