My original intent with this image was to show something more dramatic, with the hands thrust down and invoking flames. I decided to go a more contemplative route instead; this illustration will sit right next to the sword from the prior post. I'm a little concerned that both images alongside each other will present too much verticality on the page, but I have to soldier on.

Ice Sword

This is a spot illustration for the 'Sorcery' chapter of the book; most chapters have a number of panel-like spots or scenes associated with them. So there's no story here, this is just a thing being a thing.

It has been a while (again).

I need more free time. The book is almost done; there's only about a dozen illustrations to go and, mercifully, this one was by far the biggest and most time consuming.
