I know, this is just a sketch, but Im putting it up anyway to give an idea of whats in the wings here. I actually DESIGNED this one to be computer-colored so we'll see how long that one takes me. Anyways, as for concept...my idea was a little girl who inherited a sword forged by her great-grandfather. When she touches it, it awakens something inside of her (can you make out the little angel floating above and behind her?) and she takes up the pursuit of the ARS OBSCURUM. This is the first spell she's managed to get working and as a result is somewhat shocked. I don't know how good I got that last bit across. The paper version looks better. (*curses low-cost, but big, newsprint quality paper...then proceeds to his scanner which is too small to capture the whole thing.*) Oh, BTW...the inscribed circle...? Not a pentagram...7 point star. If you really want to know why, send me an email, or leave a comment and Ill send one to you.
