Candle - Competition

Hey,

This thread if here because of the week day competition.
I’m entering it by doing a candle and a candlestick.

Here’s the progress:
Made the fire:
= 3000 Halos, 3 Materials, Some nodes:

Tell me what you think.
So, I’m off to modeling the candle itself.

That’s a really cool effect, but I think there is too much turbulence for a flame as small as that of a candle.

Yeah but its because of the camera… The close up.
It looks more like a candle flame from distance.

Looks very good, can you give a lighter background (Dark grey would be fine) so that I can see the really dark parts better?

Sorry no I tried everything to make the image lighter (including nodes) but it doesn’t look good. Still glad you like it.
