Some songs soothe the savage beast. Mayael's song emboldens them.

too bad i already have a gold-card example... should've visited earlier ^^

wish this was 3d, so i could take a look at her face :)

i'm almost out of words of praise. if i continue to comment on your artworks, it'll look like copy/paste....
so i'll stop writing books... you rock ;)

I am in awe of your work. I found you by following the favourites of another artist. It was 'love at first sight' ^^

Your work came alive with so many colors, textures, and feelings. it doesn't stay just a picture... more like a photograph of real life events, but more because .... I don't know how to say it really. But your art 'moves' with life.

and I love it.

This is great artwork :)
Very cool card as well
I like the five-headed hydra (or whatever creature it is) in the background
It's good to see these pieces of artwork on a bigger scale than on the cards. Sometimes it's hard to see details on the small images on the cards. Now you can see how much detail there is in this awesome artwork. :)

Oooh Damn I love Mayael's Aria. I love how you've given progenitus more features. Progenitus is hard to see properly in his own image.

There were a few other artists who portrayed this same character. (Part of why I chose to show her from a different perspective.) For example, Jason Chan did a gorgeous portrait of her, showcasing those face tattoos.

This piece would be so much more beautiful if we got to see her feet. I can't really specify why; perhaps it's the "Ah, I love summoning ancient hydra gods in the morning" feel.
Not that it's not stunning right now. Excellent job, Mr. Argyle.

That's a very good point. I think bare feet would complete the feeling of a complete connection with nature.

Might be my favorite card in the set.

It almost seems criminal for them to have you make such a detailed piece for what ultimately ends up being a 1 1/2 square inch picture.

I actually use this card quite a lot in one of my decks, it's too bad one can't make out all the amazing detail - the texture/patterning of the clothing especially.

This is amazing - the lighting in particular is very pure.

Progenitus - The soul of the world has returned

Amazing picture, and amazing story/game

I love it when I play Progenitus, it causes every other player to emit a simultaneous: "Bugger."
