I just did this small image today to give me a break away from my spaceship. I regard it finished but im not posting something like this in the finished projects forum cause its too embarrassing. I originally had an alpha mapped plane for the flames (finally can do this method now) for the tops of the candles and it looked quite good in Blenders Internal but i didn’t know they wouldn’t show in Yafray so i just stuck some lens flares in there from Photoshop, Meh. You don’t have to comment unless theres something you really want to say because i know it looks pretty sucky.
looking good so far, there is a good flame tut in blender art issue 12 that you might want to check out:)
