Sacred Flame by DeepChrome Sacred Flame by DeepChrome
Another of my new bunch of bilaterals-using-tweaked-spiralize, and all that fun stuff.

This I touched up a little in Photoshop--a little coloring, some subtle layer-with-Gaussian-Blur stuff, and sizing down.

Once again, a close inspection turned up zero jaggies. I'd rendered at 3000, sized it down to 2500, THEN I cropped. Turned out nice, it seems. :nod:

Now...if I could've thought up a name that involved flowers, flame, energy, and spiritual stuff, I'd have put it in there. All my poor brain could come up with after waiting for this thing to render (I had it pretty zoomed in to catch this central element that you see here) was "sacred flame." I went through what felt like a BAZILLION gradients. First it was fire colors, then it was like "nooo, try the New Age thing again" then it was "well how about floral?" Then I finally landed on this one, which seemed to encompass most of what I needed, without taking away from it. Or so I think.... :paranoid:

Well, whatever. Enjoy. Apophysis 2.02h, with some postwork in Photoshop, including that crop.

Thanks for the fave. :D

I'm glad you liked it so much. I'm seeing the lightbulb thing a lot, but it figures since it does look like one. :XD:

This one took so many gradients for me to land on the right one. It's just great to see people saying the gradient was dead-on. :D

Thanks. :D

I might make it my next avatar. It would certainly fit that format. :)

And yeah, while looking at it, I thought it'd make a good badge or logo. :nod:

Reminds me of a light bulb, which isn't a bad thing. I think "filament" when I see the curl near the bottom. It looks neat -- neon wiring. :) Sweet colors!

One of the very early mutations of this when I was tinkering around with its look, resembled a lightbulb filament a lot more closely than the end result. You know those candle-shaped bulbs? Yeah. One of those.

I find it oddly fitting that you mentioned this now. :D

Glad you liked the colors. Thanks.

I love the prismatic look of this piece. I think the blur works very nice and all-in-all, this looks awesome:)

Thanks for commenting! I'm a sucker for prismatic looking stuff--always have been. Somehow it'd figure that I'd use the prismatic looking gradients. :XD:

I'm glad you like it so much.
