Serra Angel is my most Iconic "Magic: The Gathering" card. Even though she's been repainted several times by other artists, I still receive dozens of the original cards to sign each week. When asked to create a new version of her for a playmat, I jumped at the chance to re-make the image with a wider angle.
It's all digital this time, and won't appear as a card... but after 20 years, she's still flying around my studio.
A beautiful angel indeed! And, an iconic Magic card for sure. I always thought the Serra Angel was cool in Magic, and this image is very well done, quite breathtakingly lovely, and suitably epic. Love the outfit she's wearing too! It is just so beautiful, feminine, and cute... but also elegant and well-suited for an angel character to be wearing. Great work!
I remember having this card when I played Magic a long time ago. I gave it up when I got out of Magic and have regretted giving up that card ever since. I've never seen it again, and was actually beginning to doubt if it was real or my imagination that none of the Serra Angels I've seen since didn't look right.
Now I know. This is the first Serra Angel I played. Thank you for letting me see her again.
Thank you very much for drawing and bringing Serra Angel back from the days I've played "Magic the Gathering" 3rd edition her image to this day is still very iconic. I was hoping there was a full body drawn image of her of the 3rd edition card. But this shall do for now. Thank you again!
Maybe it's nostalgia, but i still prefer the original Besides, you did a great work on basic lands, specially Mirage islands and Tempest forests, my favorites of all times (at least while i was playing, until 2001...)
I'm playing Magic the Gathering since 1994, and the Serra Angel is still one of my favourites! I really hope to see a new draw for the Serra Angel, one that will keep alive that feeling of hope and beauty that was one of her best feature.
This is absolutely beautiful. I have an angel deck I play witb almost exclusively and Serra angel is still my favorite card ever. I even based my tattoo off of serra angel. Again this is just beautiful. Many thanks for sharing
