Oh man. I'm definitely gonna come back and edit this a tad, but I love this picture.
Pendulum is a very well-read mage and this theme definitely suited her. So yeah...
OMFG I HATE MAKING CUSTOM IMAGES. That book staircase took me about 40 minutes by itself ><...Pendulum is also a custom model. Blargh.
This took me just short of three hours. Topaz was only used on the books, dragonhawk, and just a tad on the background which I had edited previous to this.
Edit: added my usual glow effects which I somehow left out (they're my favorite part!)
