Well, my first weekly challenge entry in a long time, but that is too interesting a palette to not play with. One with the trans, the other to show what it looks like if your theme doesn't work with it.

A question has been raised but not yet(at posting) answered in the weekly challenge news post of "does a dragon count for the requirement?" I sure hope it does, as my dragon is not acting extremely sorcerer-like, but there is a bit of magic being done there. Let me know if it DOESN'T fit the rules though, and I'll either retract or change it, depending on how much time I've got.

Basically, I was pretty bored in this hotel room tonight and this was fun. I don't know how it'll stack up to others in the challenge, and frankly, I don't care that much. Made in GIMP, about 3 hours of solid work, good night all.

EDIT: Did a bit of added ambient lighting from the magic, not super comfortable adding more but experimenting. Thanks Claredeth!

I wanted to, and there is a litte(though only a little). My concern was that to make it obvious that it was ambience as opposed to normal light, or, worse, it simply shatters the outline of the agic and makes it blob-like. I'm playing a bit with it, but that's my major concern.

Actually, seeing it right now, I see another place that would be easy to put some in. I'll edit that in later, thanks!

EDIT: There, that should help some. Not perfect yet, but better.

 I feel like you could make this better by adding ambient lighting around where the flame/spark is.
