Hey great design... suits it perfectly!
If you wanted to be a little different... you could make 'ice' coloured flames rather than orange red fire flames... as in colour them in using whites and various blues and the large areas of black could have a deep dark metallic blue look to it. could have a fairly dark feel to it...

Perhaps with the red and black make the middle flame an orange? Could look cool.

wow, that ice look is damn kool. what about switching the colors have the blue as the flames and white for the background. while some dark blues in the flame for shading? I think that would look kick ass.

Way to go Joppo! 8)
hey Urmike04
Have you ever tried air brushing? You can buy quite cheap starter kits with a little compressor and you could go to town with shading on the flames... after a bit of practice of course :wink:
Here's the darkness I was thinking of.... the light blues are a bit electric but you get the idea...
