Abstraction (a candle ?)

A modern, glass Jack-o-latern:

Another render, camera position changed, intensity of halo reduced:

First of all, very great effect with the light and red glass but I think the first render has too much halo and not the complete … thing … is visable what gives it more (too much) inrecoldnisability (is that a word?)

But the light effect with the shadows and the red glass is really neat!

Perhaps a 1024x768 render? I’dd like to have it as a background formy desktop :smiley:

Here’s one to you:
I tried to make a caustic effect, but I guess the spirits aren’t on my side today :wink:
