The Juggler by queenofeagles The Juggler by queenofeagles
Magic can be used to accomplish the greatest of things, both good and evil. For the juggler however, magic is just a way to show off.  

If I could use magic, I would (mis)use it in this way! This is a juggling witch who uses her magic to steal the show. I tried to combine a Venetian jester/harlequin outfit with that of a mage. I am not sure what a typical mage looks like, but I guess they wear a long robe with a hood and carry a staff. The staff obviously didn't make it here thanks to the ball-juggling... though staff juggling does exist! go google staff juggling, devilstick or flow wand! I am a devilstick juggler, so therefore I think devilsticking is the most awesome of the three ;) There are so many forms of juggling, but balls is just the most well known. That's why this juggler uses magic lightning fire dust stuff balls (gosh, I want a set of those! and her skirt!) instead of a devilstick, even though I love devilsticks much more. It was a bit hard to figure out where the balls go; they are thrown in a pattern that is usually in front of the jugglers face, which doesn't really work well for an artist's point of view. For the jugglers among you (or very interested people); the pattern here is a reverse fountain... or it should be ;) haha, I think it is time to stop talking about juggling now.

Made with Photoshop CS4 and a Huion H610pro tablet. 30-40 hours of work I think, I never keep track of the amount of hours I need for my work. 

here is a step-by-step version of this pic:

( I only saw this from your journal you recently posted lol)
But I just want to say I feel like this puts a lot of other work to shame, I dont know what about it though, maybe the lighting or the pose, but wow do I love this. Perfect colors and mixtures it gives it such a whimsical look XD Just an amazing job ^_^

I love the lighting and the effects you have used to create the magic swirls-Nod 

If I had magic, I'd probably use it like that too- =P (Razz)

This......this is pure perfection :heart: I love your idea and how you put it in the art. Even the mages can be jugglers and playing like this with their own magic powers and entertain themselves or audience.  I love it. But the most I love how you color it. :3 Well shadows and lightning in perfect harmony and the design of the clothes I love it so much that I want to wear it :P So much details :love:
