Howdy! Excited to join this event and share my process!
When I hear cute few things come to my mind: colorful, round, big vs small contrast and stylized so I’m going for these three things combined to achieve a cute magical elemental effect.

I’m unable to finish this because of finals, The last WIP is my final version.
Ok so I have come up with a better idea. It’s going to be a summoning spell with a cute surprise at the end. I let all the elements play at once for the gifs, the final summoning spell effect will have several timed stages. Too bad I lost my concept art file You guys let me know what you think so far
WIP 1 (Im not feeling it tbh)
