I was still developing the magic system when I drew this one.  I’m not sure if she’s sliding, or bracing herself against some kind of blast.  I think I was intending her to be sliding to a halt, but it honestly looks more like the other.

One of the very initial concepts for the magic system was the way that “bearers” of magic would leak magic at full power, as Ishar is doing here from her feet.  You can almost always identify a bearer from their lack of shoes, due to that effect.  Callers, on the other hand, have no such problems (they can, however, be prevented from calling their affinities, whereas a bearer can actually generate theirs in small amounts).
