I hope it's the right category o_0
(warning: big description!)

Inspired by Janosh Art and thee crop circles of Shephir.
Made in photoshop CS2.

I want to do a ritual that I named 'Blueprint of the Soul'. It's been years since I did a magic spell or ritual, and this one wouldn't be like just a basic spell... Instead of a basic circle, the spell barrier would be shaped like this - the crop circle formation known as Blueprint.
In a rather depressed mood I began designing and writing a spell, but when I had drawn the formation and filled in the spaces, I realized I had actually drawn the blueprint of my very own soul.. Funny how that works, uh?

The outer ring holds the six basic qualities of my soul, the runes indicate the following (starting a the very top, to the right):
Hope (because even though I get smashed back again and again, I just can't get myself to give up, I always keep believing...),
Growth (because I've grown tremendously and I now understand that growing and evolving is one of my life's threads),
Friendship (I cherish friends, brotherhood and companionship more than anything),
Wisdom (not because I am wise, but I'm always in pursuit of wisdom and understanding and I try to be considerate),
Courage (because I think bravery is of oustanding importance and I devote a great part of my life to it),
Endurance (because I've come to understand that it's a part of my life to endure the harsh times in order to grow, it's simply what I do...)

In the middle circle the faces of my spirit animal gather; the Pygmy Owl. You see, an owl stands for wisdom and maturity, which is one side of me.. But then again I'm still a kid and I always will be, and that's where the Pygmy Owl comes from. It also goes to show that even the smallest creatures can have the greatest hidden properties.

The inner circle holds the four elements, plus two spaces of the soul. One on the back, one in the front, to indicate what was and what will be.

The stars, in the very middle, are the present individuality. In other words, Me.

The background is in colours of blue, or indigo, the landscape of a new age.
