I started with one of my macro photos ("luscious", for those who might know it) and ended up with this. Such is my easily distractable nature. :-)

More images and prints available in my Deviant art and Redbubble galleries.

What a great sense of visual balance you have. The yellows and oranges move in diagonal directions, creating a very subtle background movement. Each flame has just enough of the opposite color around it to set it off from the background. The flames have a great 3D feel and shadowing enforces that effect. On top of everything else, the texture of the background gives me one more thing to look at and the curves in the texture echo the diagonal movement of the colors. There isn't one thing wrong here. This is a beautifully warm image, as well. (Warm is the theme for the day.) High marks from me.

Thanks guys! I just noticed a flaw in the tips of the tentacles, I'm going to fix that but wait until I get more feedback before I repost incase there are any other changes I need to make.

Super duper Sam!! I love the simplicity and the color range is just purrrfect. The only little negitive thing from me is the wording on the post itself...but that's probably just me.

This I like, especially the shadowing which gives depth. Yellows and oranges are always pleasing to the eye and soothing to the mind. Good job.

Always the perfectionist, eh ? I'd leave it, but do what makes you comfortable. This really needs to be seen full screen to get the full effect. Your shading from tone to tone is done with such a delicate touch, I'm really impressed. Fantastic piece of work Sam.

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

Hey Sam...some day when I can figure out HOW to take good photos of my canvas paintings, then I will show you the painting YOU inspired by this design you have posted here. I love your creation here. The colours are just wonderful and the feel of each of the curves is very expressive. Personally, I wish it didnt have the words on it. It would look lots better on my desktop. But thank you for posting this very bright and beautiful creation.

Simply a nice background. The warm colors are very inviting especially during the grayness of winter.

Found this featured on the main page - lovely desktop. It makes a flame war almost desirable, except that those tongues of flames burn...
