The Spark of Inspiration by Ascynd The Spark of Inspiration by Ascynd
Djehuti had the worst time with the last fire class assignment. His usually logical and even-tempered personality just didn't seem to be compatible with the impetuousness and spontaneity of fire. No matter how he followed the texts or recalled Mrs. Netty's directions, he just couldn't seem to conjure flames out of thin air. On the last day of the week he spent so much time outside in peace and quiet attempting to get this magic to work that he clearly lost track of time. By the time he realized his mistake it had started to grow dark. As he made the walk back to town in defeat, it started to get cold as well. Feeling miserable, Djehuti concentrated on raising his body temperature as he had earlier, to give himself some relief from the evening chill. As he did so however, it suddenly struck him... most fire does not bloom full force out of thin air... it builds from a tiny ignition point. With that, he concentrated on gathering all the warmth he was generating into only his clawtips. After a minute or two, his claws began to glow brightly and elated, he redoubled his efforts. With a sudden warm light an ignition point was reached, and small flames appeared! Once the flames had been kindled, he found it much easier to shape them into a small ball, and he continued home with confidence for the class day ahead and a new understanding of the gentler side of fire.

I sketched this out in a rush and so it's kind of sloppy, Djehuti's expression is derpy and the proportions are a bit wonky, lol.

1/163 coin(s), last minute credit for week 4 Fire class.

Thanks! I got some practice with lighting direction on this one, it's not perfect but it came out nice I think. And also on his accessories.

And fire can be trusted if you understand it, it never changes its behavior, fire is always fire.

You did really well on this piece no doubt about it. <3

That's right, sometimes I feel like fire feels abused when people use them for inappropriate things... I mean, it can't control itself completely... It's somehow just a puppet in a sense... Poor fire...

Eeeeh Dje looks more and more handsome each day that passes <3 hehe

His expression is pretty cute and I love the description! You describe the whole flame process so well! ;v;

Yay for passing fire class nerds >w> will you take an advanced fire class next week? Haha

If intermediate classes open next week Dje would probably go for lightning if it's available and Air if it's not. =D

And thanks! I should probably do some more design and writing for Pasiphae or that other fire NPC I came up with awhile back that could include some more fire description.

Ohhh that's really nice! I think McNair liked fire too much to only do the basics. He would want to complete at least the intermediate level of fire before moving on to wind, earth and eventually dark, but I see him as the kind of character that WILL try to learn all of them XD hehe. I really want him to breath fire too. Colored fire preferably!

We should think better about making a collab next class's weeks! Unfortunately I couldn't dedicate myself since I have an important test coming up and junk. >v>;;

Can't wait to see them! ovo
