Default True Rod FLames

Hey everyone
I m never really happy with true fire on lexan so i ve been experimenting different techniques for a while.
This is a mix of true fire and classic hot rod flames. I like to have an outline around the flames. The outline is very complex, it s candy transparent colors, going from a deep red to gold depending on how the light hits it. I think if offsets the flames nicely but stays in the warm fire colors.
All windows trims are painted with real chrome paint and the main color is black with gold flakes that pops in the sun light.
Let me know what you think

Hey Fester ty
I used :
Spastix for the transparent coats and spastix white for the highlights.
createx / auto air and faskcolor for the rest .
I really like how you can work with Spaztix in multiple coats without building up any thickness unlike water based paint, even tho they stink and cost a fortune it still is worth it for this kind of results.

I m doing a few for friends so i d do a step by step, i only have enough pics for a step by step of the outline at the moment.

ty for the kind words

VT,
Very sharp.
I will say that I have seen the "flame within flame" concept before, but it's still super well done here.
