Wild Magic by SirTiefling Wild Magic by SirTiefling
Zeez all those colors... nearly burned my eyes off.

Anyway! This is what happens when a cute, quiet, harmless-looking nerd girl...
<- she
...goes out to have some fun.

The main sources of my inspiration were the Sorcerers of Dungeons & Dragons, especially the ones in 4th Edition. I think our sorceress here is a Primordial Channeler casting "Primordial Rift", a messy spell.

Tools: Mouse, Paint Shop Pro 7

Full view strongly recommended. There are so many details. :)

UPDATE: Improved spell effects, fixes, stuff.

UPDATE Mk.2: Improved lighting, more rain, fixes, stuff. Should look more wet and foggy.

Really loving this pic! I envy how you churn out so much high quality art in a quarter of the time it takes for me to make one :/

I see you have taken away the purple and blue from the main lightning branches and brightened it up considerably. This does make it look a bit more like you would think, but it looses some of the chaos of the spell. Nice to see the ground below her feet tweaked with.

So make that your goal. Tell yourself to be able to show a new spell, you have to start a new picture instead of fiddling with the old one!

A wise advice, but difficult to apply. I'm often talking to myself, telling myself things... but because I'm a suspicious individual, paranoid even, I refuse to believe anything I say. :D

This is pretty awesome. My only issue with it is the lightning. There's a little too much of it. A job well done, nonetheless.

Yeah that might be more than just a possibility...
A little thought to add that just came to my head: why have I never seen a fat female zombie? Female zombies are always thin, and the fatsos are always guys. When I think about it, I've never seen any fat female-kind of undead...
Maybe chunky women are immune!!!

I have a question though - the writing on her staff, does it mean something?

They're just Latin words: Lux, Tenebra, Nix, and Scintilla. "Light", "darkness", "snow", "spark". :)

extremely brilliant picture
and you did it with a
m-mouse?

SHO━━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━━OCK!!
you are like, wow, awesome.

could you give some tips for mouse users like me?
and oh, do you draw on a scanned lineart or you completely draw it digital? if you draw it with mouse, how do you draw so good with a mouse? and how do you color? it looks like it's done with a tablet. and adding details doesn't make you bored? how many hours do you spend on a picture?

whoa, i ask too much

Thank you. Yes, I did it with a mouse. :)

I gave few tips here: [link] Check the comments under the thumbnails.

It's 100 % digital. No scanning, no tablet. No boredom either, adding details is fun. Took me 30+ hours. :)

whoa, thanks for those cool tips. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

do you have a technique about drawing with a mouse? if yes, can i learn? o(^ω^)o
when i want to do a picture i draw it on paper first and then i scan it. after scanning i trace the lines with pen or brush tool. and if i draw the picture detailed it takes lots of time and it makes me despair. that's why there are lots of unfinished pictures on my computer.

My technique? I just move the mouse around and press the button. The illustration forms out of chaos in time. Basically, you only need to learn how to be patient. :)
