Water mage in blue out fit soon? Please. Or all 5 elements... If you are open to doing that. It would be cool. You can have an earth- in green out fit; fire - you did already, water - in blue outfit, air - in yellow; mages and in the middle spirit mage would either be in black and white or grey outfit; that can wield all 4 elements. I wish I had the skill to do it.
I like this for an unusual reason - the practical application of magic.
The thick gloves, mask, hood, and wraps around his hair all suggest the caster needing protection against his own fire, which makes a lot of sense considering how indiscriminate fire typically is. The way it surrounds him and seems to stem from him suggests effort or skill, probably both, rather than using it frivolously or carelessly like pulling it out of the air and throwing it around just as easily. Additionally, his stance suggests tension and power, yet the flames aren't that huge, which also suggests that using even that much fire is taxing or an effort, which is pretty cool considering the usual mage = WMD mentality so many people have.
That is one distinct looking pyromancer, a primitive attire, nice pose, beautiful detailing on the entire piece, great flames and smoke. You made an interesting mage, no doubt about that. Well done, keep it up.
The gritty detail is fantastic, from the texture on the clothing to the torn wrappings on the hair - and the fire effect is gorgeous, not the usual fluid feel to it, more like the look of embers flaring up. Wonderful piece!
