Rains of fire, walls of ice, or even the ability to heal allies make up a mage's toolkit.
Finally get to upload this! Nicole Shepard is from mattdokamagica's fanfiction series Beyond the Fire. Last year I did the cover for the first installment, and this year I got to do one for the sequel, DragonRise!
HIGHLY recommend checkin’ it out if you’re into the ME series - Matt has taken one of my all-time favourite game universes and made it come alive in new and endlessly fascinating ways, and the care he’s taken in crafting Nicole’s story from the ground up is nothing short of extraordinary.
Queen Anora Mac Tir - The Chariot
I want to thank all the lovely people who helped me with interpreting Anora’s arcana! =)
mage 1: Never thought I’d see her back here.
mage 2: A pity Cullen’s not here.
mage 1: He’s not still carrying a torch for her, is he?
mage 2: I hope not. He’s been at the chantry in Greenfell for some time. Nice, quiet village. Lots of fresh air. Good for the nerves. The knight-commander told him he could return here when he…leveled out.
mage 1: I’m just glad he’s gone. He was so…twitchy. And that intense stare? Creepy.
