Theme 89: Through the Fire

 The 100 Theme Challenge (Var 1) # 89: Through the Fire Huzzah! I keep seeing 100TC pictures on DeviantArt, and I finally decided I wanted to see what it's all about. I tell you, the effect that simple, stark descriptive words have on the imagination is surprising. So I just had to give it a try. I considered starting at Theme 1, but other ones caught my attention, so I think I'll end up jumping all over the place. I will keep to my other artistic obligations, but for now, this is a very fun diversion! Mr Handsom-and-defiant there is Sean, my sister's character. He's a Praedran (like my character, Kristine), though he was raised in a neighboring country. He has an extraordinarily painful past, mostly due to the fact that he is symbiotically connected to a volatile magic entity, called a Rizha. I originally planned this picture to be 'Breaking the Rules', because Sean's invisible companion allows him to manipulate, divert, reflect, and even destroy magic of any kind. Hence, he can stand in a wall of magical flames and not be crisp-fried to a crackly crunch.  Needless to say, 'Through the Fire' ended up looking like a better choice. My goal is to make each of these challenges resemble a frame of animated film. The fire was a butt to figure out, so I hope it seems at least half-decent.
