OS-TANS: Spark

By BellaCielo

The fire is magical, but the property damage is real.

Companion piece to my Linux-tan drawing, since it occurred to me I'd never drawn magic-wielding Unix-tan either. So here she is in all her "I am about to set fire to everything you love and possibly you too if I don't beat you to death with my scepter first"-y glory.

I feel like the flames and scepter could be a lot better and I forgot a few small details (the socks and the numerals carved on the staff, although I doubt those would've been easy to see at this resolution anyway...) but I wanted to get this posted so I don't spend any more time obsessing over details.

Here's a little WIP picture I put together documenting the steps leading up to the "final" version you see here.

(Darn it, I didn't see this message in my inbox, sorry for the late reply!)

Thanks for the encouraging comment! For the longest time I was hesitant to work with more dramatic styles of lighting, but recently I've been having lots of fun experimenting with them. C:

It's alright don't worry about it; it took me some times to actually get back to you on this one.

And you're welcome! Dramatic lighting can be a doozy, but just playing around with it you'll find the just right balance.

I'm happy to hear it! Thanks again for the help / encouragement. :)

(Considering that I have no idea what that means, I'm also impressed.)
