Mage of the Circle by RottenRagamuffin Mage of the Circle by RottenRagamuffin
Edit: Woot! ~BioWareTully featured my piece in EAVision's weekly Spawnpoint Bioware fan art video blog!!! :boogie: Needless to say, I'm perty seriously stoked about that! :D You can watch the video here---> [link] :iconbwavoplz:

A member's choice at :iconmanipulatethis:

This piece was inspired by the fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Origins ©Bioware and EA.

Neria Surana, a young apprentice mage of the Circle, taken from her family whilst still a child, and sent to the Circle of Magi in Ferelden to commence her training in the ways of magic, under the ever watchful eyes of the Templars. The Tower could easily be considered a gilded cage, but nonetheless, hers is not necessarily an unhappy existence, since this is the only life she has ever really known, and she has her close friend, Jowan, to keep her company… Oh~ and the kitty, otherwise known as Mr Wiggums :giggle:

My little girl Anna looks JUST like her! Anna is ten. Im not sure how old this mage is but my Anna look exactly like her except for the elf ears of coarse. Great job! I might buy it to put in the family photo album. :)

So beautiful. There just seems a lovely sense of optimism and wonder but underlying entrapment here. Gorgeous colours. Everything you do is so intense.
