Bloodthrone Vampire

By
Bloodstained lips are even sexier than winestained lips. The clawed up back would be worth it.

Once again, I seem to adopt a primal venom abstraction motif for Magic vampires. Implied spider-leg headdress, webs, and coral snake dreadlock wraps. There's also always something intrinsically unnerving about black scleras in the eyes.

For Magic: the Gathering, Rise of the Eldrazi. Copyright Wizards of the Coast. Art Direction by Jeremy Jarvis.

Headdress by Graveyard Fashion Surplus of Ohio.

This is one of my favourite cards, not only for the mechanics, but for the art as well.  Simply delicious. :devil:

Amazing portrait

The awesome thing is: in the art, she looks a bit like she's contemplating eating herself. The card can actually do that! It's one of those awesome sac-outs that just says "sacrifice a creature", and doesn't specify which one. I've often made her eat herself to set off shenanigans in a B/R sac deck.

Anyway, gorgeous art, nice to see the original on DA. I think I'd better prowl through your gallery and see how many other old favourites turn out to be drawn by you! Keep up the brilliant work!
