I think this picture was lurking around on my PC for about two years now. It changed slightly over the years and I've been trying various things with it, only to discard most of them. Finally I couldn't take it any more and decided to stop fooling around and finish it.
As for what's depicted: it's my character Sythiar performing a healing spell on a small blackdevil angler fish (Melanocetus johnsonii
). Her magic is mainly water-based, being a protective water spirit, and all. As such she can also use water as a powerful healing agent.

You may notice that I've changed the format in the end. Well, I was just too lazy to detail out the entire picture. I was also too lazy to do a background, so I just decided I'd go for the Caravaggio-ish kind of thing. Or whatever.
