Ah! This brings back many fond memories of annoying my friends with Invisible stalker and Harbor Bandit. This has always been my absolute favorite, even more so than other such lands like the full-art lands from Zendikar. I have looked at this piece for days, I would reckon. Say, is that little cluster of trees at the top of the formation a throwback to the #338 (according to Oracle, #337 as printed) Island from 8th edition? Or am I just reading a little too far into things?? 

I would love to know. Well, no matter what, you have to be my favorite artist from MTG. I hope to see more of your work soon!

It was done digitally? Wow, did not know that - it looks like oil or acrylics. Most digital paintings look somehow unreal, too perfect, if you understand what I mean. But this one really looks like it is painted. I like that, I'm a big fan of traditional art in MtG.
And most of the time when I look at MtG art, I think to myself: "Give it up, you will never be that good.", but somehow this thing here looks somehow "possible". Maybe if I try harder I will be able to do something like that as well - maybe one day.
However, well done, keep going. And thanks for uploading.
