Air Mage by TrollGirl Air Mage by TrollGirl
One of the many commissions i probably owe my art patron :P.
The scanner slightly ate it, and the celtic border was quite difficult, but i rather like him overall. He has two little minions and a weird staff, and it's always slightly windy where he is :D
Vaguely based off ~sirmagis

Watercolors, colored pencils, white pen, some photoshop.

The Air Mage looks amazing! You did a good job on the Celtic knots. They aren't easy to do that. :)

By the way, how about an Earth Mage, a Water Mage and a Fire Mage? :D
And an Aether Mage, maybe :P

Well, if -you- ask...:P
Maybe in the summer. Also, not sure what Aether is, in this context. My brain is off in those hours.

Well, the aether part was suggested more jokingly. The other ones might be really interesting, however. :)

Awesome! I like it a lot. :)

Beautiful as always: the face, the flow, cloths and little minions. Especially I like his stuff. :)

Well I see you already know that celtic boarder is awesome, but the expression, fireball and bluebird are also great :D
But for some reason the hand holding the fireball looks a bit weird to me...
anyways can I borrow his powers next time I'm depressed? Windy days are great moodlifters for me :heart:

Thanks! And i tend to wonk-up the hands i draw, for some reason twisted fingers do it for me...
Interesting to know you like wind, i always thought you're more of a fire element. Anyway, feel free :P

I love windy days :D last time I had one was at my brothers bar mitzvah and we were at a hotel by the beach... in the winter... there was a huuuuge storm during the night and it was like a hurricane out there, it was great!
Fire because of the hair right? =P In most of the stupid quizes on facebook I end up being water

I have that idea that after you finish with the shy teenager demeanor, you'll have quite a fiery personality.

Shyness is annoying.
Once it used to be so bad I couldn't even talk to people working at stores, or in class... now I'm working on being less shy.

I'm in a similar situation, I believe :P I agree that it can be problematic when it interferes with one's everyday life.

critic requested? here is a critique for ya! the celtic bprder is cheasy as hell, but then again so is having a flaming fire ball on one hand and a staff on the other with a flying creater on the shoulder and winf in the hair
but if chease is what you were after, then it's really really masterfully done, watercolor and all.
btw, i would like to eat your brain and consume your abillty to draw fabric that good :P

I think you mean "cheese", my friend.
And yeah, i was going for a pretty generic fantasy character =]
My brain goes well with grated cheese. Help yourself. Or, we can meet and paint something, i'm visiting Tal this weekend =]
