Stained glass "the works" commission for animageofbliss, this is her Final Fantasy XIV character Maeltaa enchanting a book with runic magic. Thank you so much for commissioning me and for being so awesome and supportive!

This was an interesting one since I took a different approach with the composition and wanted to include an actual architectural aspect to help frame the scene inside, so I went with something Gothic-inspired. It was fun integrating the bookshelves into the window layout. It was also thanks to this commission that I learned how to make magic circles in Photoshop. It's surprisingly simple! I had no idea you could wrap text around objects. I've been using Photoshop since forever and I just learned this the other day.

Commissions aren't officially open yet but I'm thinking about opening them soon. Let me know if you'd like to be tagged. Thanks!

beautiful, Always loved stained glass and you've done a great job with the array of symbols, as well as how the various curios scattered in the book shelves reflect portions of the windows, as the book covers reflect the floor tiling, the animagus is cute as well.
