Julia, a young sorceress, experiments with fire magic for the first time after daring the forbidden Binding ritual.  She may now be more fire snake than human, but her magic power has increased a hundredfold.

I had the lineart for this sitting on my computer for the longest time — I drew it a year ago — but I didn't really do much shading until a few days ago when I pulled it back out of the "incomplete projects" bin and decided to finish it.  This uses my new soft-shading technique, and I think uses it well:  She's one of the best nagas I've ever drawn.

As usual, this was drawn 100% in CorelDRAW, as vector art, exclusively with a mouse, and maybe took thirty hours or so total, surprisingly less than I'd have expected.

Hmm, that fire look a little liquidy, very interesting effect.

When I saw the image, I thought "yeah, when you're cold-blooded learning fire magic is probably a good idea" and it turns out that wasn't relevant to the actual story behind it. Oh well, it's still a true thing to say.

If this is vector art then theoretically an SVG version would be possible, no?

I'm not sure how well it would export, since I use a lot of CorelDRAW-native features, but theoretically, yes.

Beautiful. Simply stunning and gorgeous work, phantom.

Unless the ritual involves a bloody sacrifice or messes with your mind> I don't see any reason to forbid such a ritual, especially looking at the results :) And having powerful sorcerers should be a boon to any country/nation/whatever.

Also, minding your last journal, get well and sacrifice your illness for the sake of your welfare!

Very good sense of magic and change, I like the sense of a captured instant.
