You can buy a PRINT of Visara The Dreadful here: [link]

For Magic the Gathering's "From the Vault: Legends" which is due to be released august 26th.

You can find out all about it here: [link]

I had an utter nerdgasm getting assigned this card.
I of course love black in MTG, so whenever I get a black card I really, REALLY get into it.
So into it that I choke about half a dozen times trying to get a sketch I like.
Visara here about brought me to my knees until something finally came together...2 days before it was due.

True to black mana - I had to sacrifice a little of my own life and sanity to achieve my goals.
But I woudn't have it any other way :evillaugh:

Hopefully you'll all enjoy her - and summoning her against your foes -as much as I did creating it.

Best wishes!

I know you don't have time to answer questions but, I have to know. Do you use reference when you work? I've got to ask.

she was the reason I made a commander deck. I refused to play that game type until I saw visara and I said to my friend "I'll make a commander around this one" :)

There's definitely nothing dreadful about her curvacious body though that's for sure.
