    Ok, my idea is a firebreathing witchdoctor... i don't think im gonna do anymore until early next week but i just wanted to get my idea down... took ages to get a good mask design and the legs are still giving me trouble. Gonna have the whole body tattooed in a firey style, add some feathers to the shield and probable some hanging off a string around his wrist.

    Phrix is right, the staff is a lifeline linked specifically to the individual and as such it is useless in the hands of any other mage.
    As for controlling more than one element it is not impossible but someone might be able to control two, at most three other elements but these types of people come around one every 5 thousand years, that's how rare they are. Also every element has an opposite:
    Earth - Air
    Fire - Water
    Light - Dark
    If a mage did control more than one element, they would not be able to control two opposite forms.

    @Kafka Dreams The staff is a staff. It can be one or two handed but it is still a staff. Mages can carry other weapons though, think of Gandalf with his staff and sword.

    The idea for this character is that in the Dark Tribe, death is seen as an opening into 'the other side' which is a vast source of power, and mages are experimentally created by being taken there and brought back. When twins are born, both are sacrificed in infancy and their hearts are placed into an hour-glass, before the bodies are left in the underground chambers of the church. When a week has passed, the bodies are brought outside. One is buried and the other is revived, his/her heart is replaced with a magical stone. This surviving twin is now assumed to carry the souls of both themselves and their sibling in the hourglass, a source of immense power. The glass is fitted into a staff and the child is raised as a mage: a seer, a warrior, and a spiritual leader.

    (The staff is included, laid across her lap, just isn't too clear from this size.)

    Dark Mage. Corrupted by their power, they're like living rotten monstrous shells kept alive by their staff and its power.

    @gdlr Air includes the lighting and stormy winds, but water controls stormy rain.

    @ryanoir Feel free to design out as many as you like as long as they are submitted in a single image for the final

    @Pixeltuner Epic design as always ^_^

    Just some inititial ideas. The last three are earth, air and fire. The first one was intended to be earth, but I realized the tree/nature theme didn't entirely fit either earth or life. I'm edging towards the air or fire one.

    oh man oh man oh man ....I nearly peed myself as I saw this weeks topic ! I am in !

    1. quick question ...I know its already been answered but I have to ask again:

    - lets say there is this one guy and he DID found a way to collect these staffs...I mean c`mon ^^ thats what we all want to do a guy in a world where collecting stuff ( staffs ) could get him god alike power just so all the other guys can party-up to destroy him ...would that automatically get me out of competition ?

    so long

    It wouldn't get you out of the competition but think about the key features of the challenge, you are esencially designing a human element - the personification (so to speak) of air, water, fire, earth, light and dark, and the rules say that the element has to be clearly identifiable, and so if you did do an ultimate mage, would you be able to show all the different elements?

    For the purpose of this challenge I would strongly recomend that people stick to the rules of the world:
    - One element
    - Staff bound to a single mage
    However, that's not to say that there aren't mages out there trying to collect all of the elements, or gathering the broken staves of magi they have defeated as a symbol of how powerful they are.
