There is something so strangely beautiful about writing systems and runes.

you wouldn't happen to be familiar with reiki would you? This symbol seems to be very similar to it. Where does your inspiration come from?

I am familiar with Reiki, though I'm not trained in it. My inspiration comes from Arabic, Oriental, Celtic and Midieval Germanic manuscripts, at least when it comes to lettering practice. Of course the types of lettering I practice effect my pen strokes and so those styles are represented within the symbols and sigils I create, and I'm pretty sure they influence my digital work as well.

They diffidently radiate something special. One can tell you put a piece of yourself in your work. I enjoy looking through your pieces, even if I've seen them several times there seems to be a new element to them each and every time. Not just your calligraphy but your graphite sketches have a life of their own as well.

It does radiate a feeling of power, so you're probably correct.

Sorry This is late, I haven't logged into DA in a LONG time.
I'm glad you like the image, and I have no problem with you using it in a costume. (Maybe you could use it next year, I realise it's too late for this year, but if you did use it, That's cool! :) )

I draw them all the time, but I don't post very many, as I usually draw them on lined paper in notebooks. I am going to be reworking a bunch of them on good paper in better (non-sketch) quality in the next month or two though, specifically for posting here.

I haven't discovered a specific meaning for this one yet, though It seems to radiate a feeling of power. Perhaps that is what it symbolizes. As for Magick, there are a lot of good resources on the Net, you might try the Sacred Text Archive. They have a lot of good items there. My main advice though is to remember that there are many Magickal styles and techniques out there, but not all of them are 100% 'right'. they are based on the same basic underlying philosophies and principles. look for the similarities between as many techniques and styles as possible, and you will quickly discover the true essence of Magick.

what exactly is this symbol anyways? I love the design and I completely agree with ~My-Last-Sanctuary about getting it done as a tattoo :D I love magick and am doing as much research in the subject as much as possible. Do you have any tips?

I absolutly LOVE it :boogie:
It kind of remainds me of a LOK (legacy of Kain) symbol, to me it ia a downside, though it can be a plus. Did you design it?
I think I would love to have it as a tattoo with some little changes :heart:

I did design it. I originally did it with a caligraphy pen, but the version I have here was done in paint shop pro as a vector graphic. I don't really know much about LoK, to be honest. I have no problem with it being done as a tattoo :)

( I've been searching for a good tattoo over ten years now.)

I will show you the result and credit your great design where I can :hug:
