Recently I had the pleasure to illustrate Queen of Pain Arcana for DOTA 2's battle pass release. This one was a blast to paint!

Hi there, is it possible I can use this artwork as a fanmade card in Steam Workshop? I will make sure to credit you fully for the artwork, and its a noncommercial and noncanonical entry.

(I am aware that Valve made this character, and I have cleared it with them to make Dota2 fan cards, as long as it's noncommercial)

Great use of silvery blues over the dark purples and black makes all the red and orange really pop. Love the smoke effects too - enough that the audience gets the taste of "fire and brimstone" without taking away from the central character. Great stuff. :heart:
