Through lanes and stone rows, black granite, wind blows.
Fire lake and far flame. Go now but come again.
Dark clouds gather 'round.
Will I run or stand my ground?

The final Anthrocon commission, a render for ninjalion of FA of Riyoh channeling some lightning and wind. Things are about to get electric. (I'm sort of sorry about the previous sentence, but not entirely.)

This was an absolute joy to work on, and I'm extremely happy with the results. I tried to push myself further with this guy than I have previous renders, and I truly hope it shows. Onto some personal work and commitments; hopefully commissions will re-open soon!

Music
Alchemy + Photoshop
Critiques are absolutely welcomed, as always.

    Ah, I was there to catch the tail-end of this stream! It's been quite awesome, following your growth as an artist! :3

      D'awwww. Thank you! I remember seeing you in there~ Thanks for hanging out as well! Hopefully I can get to streaming a little more often. I still want to. (I also need to remember to maybe show I'm streaming over here on this site!)

        Thank you both for streaming! And you totally should! I'd like to visit and watch during breaks. :)

    My kind of lion. You go, lion-bro.

      I was thinking of you while doing both the lightning AND the wind/dust. I thought, "This is a Derecho catcher. I will catch a Derecho."

      I deed it.

        I'm so predictable. ;.; Might as well prop a box up with a stick that has a string tied to it.

    This would make a perfect desktop for their computer! :)

    I love the Lightning effect...fabulously done! :D

      It would! It might be good for a lot of things, actually. My main goal was a sort of splash-image that you might see in League of Legends or something, because I'm a sucker for those character action illustrations. Ugh. So good.

      Thank you so much!

        I love those, too...one of the neat things about getting some of the video game artbooks is the illustrations you don't see often--like on randomly generated loading screens ("Disgaea" games are good examples of this!). I remember getting the "Grandia II" artbook and saw illustrations for Melfice's "not possessed version" that were never shown in the game, but were clearly splash illustrations.

        You're very welcome! :D

      Moderately stronger than a static shock.

        That gave me the best worst idea ever. Unlike most mages, electrical based mages use wool socks as their catalyst rather than wands. They rub their feet on the ground before casting!
