MtG: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

This is the last illustration that `janaschi and I worked on together. It's for Magic: The Gathering's upcoming Dark Ascension set. By the time we did this, in May of last year, things had changed, so for this one she did the drawing and I did the painting.

This is our final collaboration.

Blew my mind from the second I saw this. I finally found out who made it and realised you've made some of my favourite MtG art.

Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and said: For the honor of Saint Traft!

This is too beautiful - the low angle, the overcast sky, and the perfect illumination of the hair. Your talent and ability to convey emotions are unbelievable. Kudos to janaschi as well for the pose

I love pictures that make you feel like you're there, Algenpfleger--I think it's the leaden sky and the sand dunes feels so eerily familiar, thankyou!

Nice work! I like it!
But I just realice one thing: She's holding a Rapier sword, but a Katana's scabbard
Or it's just my imagination?
