Flames - Basic Blue Double Wide by jbensch
These are the classic hot rod flames. You see these quite a bit on school lunch boxes to the actual hot rod they originated from to apparel and lots of other things. Since hot rod flames are so common and over done I wanted to find something that was a bit more unique from the standard fare that you find and I feel like jbensch really added a unique touch to the design of the flames. I did also select this for the traditional flames on blue color scheme because it's difficult to find flames that aren't on a very dark background and it's tradition, which is something I don't particularly like to mess with.

Radial Flames by Dark Warlock
This background by Dark Warlock is a bit more abstract but since the nature of fire is so random and abstract itself, I feel like it fits with the theme of fire. It's also a background looks incredibly like a painting and features a lot of colors and contrast which adds a tremendous amount of depth to the image and makes for a lovely care that can be given to someone who maybe isn't crazy about the traditional, wavy fire design like the ones featured on hot rods.

In Flames by The-fishy-one
In Flames by The-fishy-one is another very lovely painted style gradient that really captures the colors and spark of flames. The colors mesh beautifully from dark to light and is a very open and neutral background, leaving lots of room for customization. The wallpaper is available in a zip file at its source and contains 7 resolutions which are listed on the preview image.

Fire by Hellheimer
This simple fire background is smooth, elegant, and a little jazzy. Its cool and refreshing brush strokes almost distract you from the fact that it is indeed a small flame. I always admire people who can compose a clear subject with so few line as it creates a beautiful, clean and, simple product which makes is great for a lot of things both professional and personal.

This wallpaper has realistic visuals, depths, and textures and is sure to light up your background incredibly well.
