Ojutai, Soul of Winter

So stoked that I got to do one of the legendary dragons.  

I think it's cool how when birds bank their bodies can become almost perpendicular with the ground while their heads remain stable and oriented upright, locked on to whatever it is they're looking at.  I tried to replicate that here.

Wow, INCREDIBLE! I always loved MTG cards for how beautiful they were, it is amazing to see one of the artists that gets to bring them to life! The way that the shadow of the mountain casts blue over the dragon's body but then the sunlight hits and shines through the tip of the wings, making them a vivid, warm orange, is so incredibly beautiful and feel so real and yet mystical at the same time, the way beautiful things in nature, when glimpsed, feel magical. You do an excellent job selling the flight of this enormous creature.

Easily one of my favorite card arts, Ojutai himself and his creed are so gorgeously designed <3

One of my favorites. I traded my Pre-release Dromoka for a Pre-release Ojutai.

I absolutely LOVE this piece!
my boyfriend got me the magic card and I directly loved it :3
It is a shame that the art on the card is a lot darker, makes it lose a lot of detail :/

Very dynamic, and great choice of colors! I definitely get the feeling of a bird of prey that keeps its head locked on to the target. 
Wonderful job :)
