I'm open to anything, but 99.9% of the tribal or old school style flames I see are weak. They are totally played out, unorignal, uninspired, and half of the time, the color choices are terrible too! Who wants to see purple and orange flames on a green bike? I know I sure as heel don't! I do like the realistic looking flames, but only when they are done well, and have something unique about them. Plain flames are kind of boring, but when they make a picture out of realistic flames, that looks cool, like when it looks like skulls or something inside the flames. Some people just go completely nuts and make realistic-looking tribal-designed old-school pinstriped chopper flames! LOL!
I'm a little biased on the subject i like airbrushed flames but the true fire ones not the oldschool type and i prefere the flames to blend in with the paintwork more and not be too in ya face.
It's like any design on any vehicle tho you either like or ya don't and all the while some people like em you'll continue to see it done, either done well or done badly.
Wether or not ya like the blueflames on my bike i care not one little bit cos i like them, so there :fu:
real flames or nothing, but even the real flames are often bad looking. There is a V10 Dodge Pickup that is in the neighborhood that had the real flames air brushed on and it looks sick. There aren't any pictures in the flames but the way the flames move over the body work looks really cool.
