Of course, we all know the proper name for a fractal like this is "glowy swirly awesomeness."

You are so creative, not only with the pieces, but with the names too! I love this one, it has such soft but strong colours, yet it so delicate. :clap:

I love the movement and the lighting in this one.. The upper part has some very subtle but lovely textures too... One thing I would change about this would be the coloring though, I really think the flame needs a more lively and energetic gradient, especially with that title... The title makes me want to see greens and yellows and tints of pinks, for some reason :D anyway, you're the artist, that was just my opinion.. :) I really love the flame, overall :thumbsup:

Thanks for such a great critique! :D I tried about 20 colors on this one, and went with "arcane" rather than "springified" because nothing really looked right. I'll try your color idea though, for fun! :D

Hey stalker. :hug: Pointy butterflies are cool, especially the ones from Scotland. Okay, I said that because the pattern behind it kinds of looks tartan'ish. :giggle:
