ToxicFork has done some progress on the fireball spell, giving you the ability to curve it by the influence of the player's momentum. We're currently tweaking it, and looking into a 'fling' technique to curve it.

if you haven't already, you should consider showing your work off at the various gameart forums. Polycount, and gameartesians i can think of off hand.

I have too many projects of my own to help out here, sadly.
