I began with the picture below.
It consists of the photograph of the flame of a simple torch, the kind you see flickering in yards on a summer night. I multiplied it and then began to work on it with Paint.net software. Paint.net is a free download and it has an immense capability to transform images.
I just began to doodle with the seven 'candles' and lots of neat things appeared.
when I got done playing with it I was, in fact, not done. I decided I could make a video out of the resulting images. So that is what I did. The video titled "Seven Candles" is below.
Along with the seven candles I added "Jack" and "Qkjea" the Fire People as emissaries of the mystical realms.
I chose music to go with it from the selections YouTube provided. The title of the track is "A Walk Into Space" created by Topher Mohr and Alex Elena.
