This is one my favs from the Ravnica Block. A lot of my favorite Magic cards are spells or instants with art that effectively depicts the action, so I tried my best to do that here. Deflecting fire and also turning it into bubbles was a tough nut to crack, but I'm happy with the readability of the finish.

PS: Unfortunately I can't take credit for the concept of deflecting fire into bubbles, that was included in Jeremy Jarvis' art description. It was up to me to figure out how to illustrate it and make it readable

This piece of artwork is amazing. The colors, the lighting, the textures, the motion. I just think it lookes like the fire is being turned into water. Perfect nonetheless.

You should upload some studies. It would be cool to see the design process for one of these.
