I recently discovered the wonder that is Magic The Gathering and its deep rich lore. The battle of Zendikar is one of the iconic moments of the entire franchise. Therefore from the perspective of a faithful disciple of the wizards of the coast, this art hits all the right marks! For one the thing, this image is as you say 'deliriously cute" The giant squid hovering in the air, the carrot heron and the narwhals, it all comes together in a way that is both epic as well as adorable. Like something out the climax of a animated disney movie. The level of skill alone would make it worthy of such.
