'She fled through a doorway, which led out to a balcony... as well as to a view of the vivacious flames that licked the courtyard below.'
Compare this picture to my earlier work, 'Fleeing the Skeleton Lord,' and you'll begin to notice that I drew inspiration for my Hickory Dock project from that piece... and my series of dreams about the Skeleton Lord. I'm proud of the way I made the flames in this picture. This isn't just a 'fire' effect, or a 'filter' that I applied to make those flames. It was the combination of many tools and filters and experimentation!
