    Whew!
    wow, i can see how that would be tricky. I actually did the frame first and then the projection lines. how did it turn out for you?

    That's pretty sweet. I really like the way the border criss-crosses in the middle.

    Default Fire and Water

    Added the fire element in the upper right corner of the globe. Im pretty happy with how it turned out, though it puts my air element to shame and i will need to redo it. I also added a wave pattern to the ocean and made the projection lines less prominent.

    Long way to go still.

    I´m stunned. This is a great wip and gets better with every update. I wish I could draw like this.

    This is really quite nice so far, looking forward to seeing the finished 'product'

    Default balance

    Thank you all for the compliments

    Created and added the "evil" element to balance out the "good" element. Too dark?
