Nicol Bolas
I got super excited for the Amonkhet block that I had to paint some Nicol Bolas fan art. I got really inspired by the artwork of the set/block and so it helped me finish this in 4-6 hours :)

Here is the study paintings side by side. I loved converting the original (Afternoon) to various times of the day. Was super fun.

Here is the night version of my previous painting.
This is my second attempt at working on a weather and time of day environment study. Here is the afternoon for this location I made up. The next set of paintings will be of the same location but in different times of the day/night and in different weather.

Wow, just found your stuff!
It is nice to see, that I am not the only one who is painting MtG fanart all the time... :D
I am looking forward to see you doing real art for MtG in the future. You can get there, I am sure!

You rock, keep up the good work! :)

Oh, and that beard is awesome! ;-)

Thanks for checking out my work! I eventually will add more artwork soon as I currently have multiple pieces in the work. I will post stuff on reddit when I have anything MTG related finished. 

Have a good one!

Here's a little speed drawing video of Garrosh Hellscream. Was waiting for a dungeon in WoW and wanted to share with you all.

Just wanted to thank everyone for checking out my art. I also wanted to give a "Hello" to all my new watchers. 

I REALLY love all the feedback/ critiques on my work so all is welcome. Over the years I've grown a thick skin (Barkskin?) for receiving critiques on my work and I always try to see it for their perspective. So thank you for all the feedback!

I have new art in the works so stay tuned in for new Blizzard fan art paintings that I will be posting soon.

Again, thanks for all the love and I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend.
