    Thanks a lot for all the comments... And the kind welcome!

    As I said, I didn't do this in any Xara product, In fact I'm not familiar with Xara at all,
    would it be possible to do something like this in a Xara application??

    EDIT: The reason I ask is, If it were not possible to do this in Xara, then the guys will say that I'm cheating...

    Yes, your images are possible in Xara. You would be amazed at the power Xara has. There is little Xara cannot do. I'm still amazed at some of the images Xara users are able to get from Xara.

    The attached image is from a tutorial from a while ago, but I do think it fits and can help answer your question. The flame is not up to the same caliber as your is, but trust me, it's possible.

    Guss, if you don't mind me asking - What program did you use to create these images? Was it Corel? I ask because I noticed some of your other works (created using Corel DrawX4) that were posted on in the Graphics Gallery. Not many people know this, but XARA was a product of Corel - I know because I had one of the first copies (CorelXara 1.0b - back in the mid-90's). If you have been using Corel Drawx4 you may find XARA to have more features and gives you more control of your creativity And on top of that, it run faster than Corel Drawx4 (I've seen videos on youtube). I'm just

    Personally, Xara is THY BEST vector based art program I have ever come across!

    If you vist the XARA website, you can download the 30-day trail version of the program for free. These 30 days trails are fully functional during the 30-day trail. The latest version is Xara Designer Pro 6. See if you like it.

    I'm just trying to help.

    Corel once had marketing for Xara's program but did not create the application. After the marketing agreement ended Xara began marketing their own products.

    I used CorelDraw X4,

    sorry if i sounded a little ignorant, but I'm quite new in this particular field...
    (if someone asked me how to design a typical magazine cover, I would not know how to even start...)
