Your impression of the magic ball

Create your impression of Twinsen's magic ball as it would appear in a higher resolution (say, 200x200 pixel) than we have seen till now.
In the game the magic ball is limited to a rather small size and there are restrictions based on the effects that can be used (like no alpha transperency).

So, give us your impression on how the magic ball (1st level) looks like.
Keep in mind things like:
- translucency
- texture
- lighting
- shape

And maybe include a story why you think it looks like that.

-_-

But seriously, I always kind of thought of it as a dodgeball when I was younger but Iif I think about that now something like that can't kill anything. I think it's kind of shiny like a pearl, kind of glowing, feeling like rubber or something and when it get's thrown it accelarates itself so fast that it will seriously hurt.

Can't really draw it, I suck at photoshop.

Let's mail Fred about it, he doesn't have anything better to do anyway.

Edit: yeh, kind of like how TakaM described it.

It starts almost completely normal, imo...just a hint of magic about it.
I think it will be fairly soft though, rather then hard...and you would have a hard time even feeling it in your hand.
I'll make a little render when I have time.

yeah, the cosplay sucks, but it's what came up when googling for "wakka ball"
Final Fantasy 10 might be one of the only other games that has a character using a ball as a weapon.

I've always thought of it as having a sort of solid-liquid-gas appearance.

Perhaps this one? (still working on it)
As opposed to that other one I made.

EDIT:
Aaand here's a new one.
Hmmmm, that draws a bit to the one by .TakaM, only less shiny, anyways that's not on purpouse .

EDIT:
I figured it needs a background, couse without it you can't give it any nice effects.

Heres roughly my idea...real looking, but just hints to its magic:

What happened to the one on the LBA1 splash screen? I suppose it's not 200 x 200 though – but it's far more detailed than in-game.

That's a fire ball, 4th level.
although... is that the fireball?

Anyway... I\we need some reusable art. That magicball is awesome but not really reusable (for the MBN logo for example)

Ah yes.

I always thought of the magic ball looking just like a normal shiny round ball...

Imo it could be energy-based or solid.
I guess a solid ball from steel could knock out some enemies, so that's an option, lol

Alright, made two pics of my interpretation anyway.

It has to be the fireball- in LBA1 by the time you have the medallian (Which I believe Twinsen is wearing in that screeny) you've hit the third level of magic, due to having the medallian and Book of Bu.

this magicball may be different from yours but i still thinks my creation is cool ^^ , the white in the outer regions may be some energy field that protects twinsen from getting hurt ^^.

A drawing I did as an idea for a shot for the RMP, but which I didn't submit because the Magic Ball is already in Twinsen's house, not the grotto.

Basically it's less rubberry and less solid, and it's meant to be unclear where the ball ends and the glow begins. The fire ball would be quite similar but with swirls round it and slightly more orange colours. More or less like the game image, I suppose.
