Very much like a christmas card, but those eyes are way out there! I'd be afraid to approach that. Maybe cause I'm a guy . But to me that suggests insane lust. Your trade partner loved it though, so who could want anything more than that?
Yeah, looking back... it does have some innuendo.
And for the fire, I simply looked up some pictures of fire (Google is a friend.) and then pasted them on top of one another. I've once or twice actually painted fire by hand, but it really is too much trouble unless you're going for a very specific look.
