Solar flares are not actually created by the sun. They are in fact the flaming trails from the back of an enormous serpent which dwells on the star. It often stays submerged in the twisting seas of plasma, only revealing itself momentarily to "cool" itself off in the vacuum of space.

I had a lot of fun with this challenge! I also used it as some practice with a lot of dithering.

Wow, I REALLY like this idea of a giant serpent living in the sun! And the piece is nice too :)

Very creative! Although I think there's too much dithering on the sun-- it kinda feels like fabric.
