Counter Spell
Hey all!

For this painting I wanted to do my own version or a counter spell. I didn't want to paint the typical mage countering a spell but something more elegant. So I figured I'd replace the human figure with swans countering a blast. Studying the swan anatomy was super fun and enjoyed painting them :)
Birds of Paradise
Well I wanted to paint a pelican but a more colorful one so I turned this one into a Birds of Paradise(MTG) pelican. MTG Fan art.
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.

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.
