In that case, it appears he used grading to alter the colors of the actor to only yellows and oranges, and added fire over the top using particles.

Axeman,

This is one of the better Human Torch effects I have seen recently.

I was wondering if you or someone else could do a tutorial for this cause most of the ones I have found people are using After Effects.

If you notice on the one cottonproductions put, you can see light on his face when he lights his hand on fire. How does he do that! Cause I know it's not grading.

How do you know its not grading? It very well could be grading, used in conjunction with some masks and other techniques to limit the areas affected. This tutorial uses a similar technique for light cast by lightsabers.

It would be much easier though, to just point a light at his face while filming.

Ive done this before in effects lab pro. Its hard so if you have Composite lab pro it would be much better.

Try to use a load of fire stock footage and colour grading. For the part where his face lights up, I suggest you go frame by frame and making the colour higher then darker

Actually now that I think about it, he maybe did use some masking.
