The idea of drawing this came to me after listening to Stellatram's "Stelliarythm," a song set in the centuries *before* the first Ar tonelico game is meant to take place. It's a song sung by Eolia, Frelia and Tyria, and it brought to my mind the idea of the elements that they govern taking the form of a circle, ever spinning round and round.

So this is what became of my idea. I put in a Triangular Nuclear Loop in the centre, because in the Ar tonelico games, it's the heart of a Reyvateil, and just like the outer circle spinning round and round, the TNL also spins round and round, dictating time and lifespan.

Autodesk Sketchbook. I think this took me a week(?).

The Ar tonelico games are created by Akira Tsuchiya, and I don't quite know who owns them anymore considering that the rights seem to be split between a fair few game companies. Regardless: in JP and elsewhere, fanart and fan songs and the use of the Hymmnos language, but not the glyphs, are encouraged, so I am cautiously taking a leaf from there. I am well aware of what has suddenly happened to the European internet, so I am keeping my eyes open.


For those who are curious about this song I was listening to, here it is:

Eh, I'm glad you think so. When this came out it had a score barely above 4 and I was certain somehow that I was doing something wrong... Glad you enjoy it~

You had a concept and you nailed it!

Troisnyx responds:

I'm glad it came out the way it did — and I'm glad you liked it. Thank you!

This looks very interesting and unique.

Troisnyx responds:

Cheers, anything in your mind that I could do to make it better?
