Card art for the Shadows over Innistrad set of Magic: The Gathering. The world of Innistrad is Magic's gothic horror realm and I first had the chance to work on it several years ago so going back was fun. That's something I really enjoy about making Magic art, the subjects are constantly changing pushing you to adapt and explore new things or in this case, have a second shot.
The brief called for a skaab with lanterns who would provide light for his mates so I came up with beauty.

It shows that you had fun working on this - the art is very creative and full of character. My favourite detail is, of course, the way the candles are mounted.

Love the art! I also love the way you portrayed your figure, and especially the various hands holding candles on his back, which along with everything else, looks stitched up like a Frankenstein creation!

I also like your motive behind the pic. I feel somewhat inspired to participate in drawing events or groups to try and vary my art aswell! Yes, being given topics can help my mind expand, and think up new things!

There seems to be several mythical elements in this piece. Colors are well chosen. Rich purples and pinks for the skin and cold blues with grey for the iron. Lighting is well done.
