Been playing since Alpha and this is my favorite card of all time. It took me *years* to notice the broken/weeping characters in the background, and when I did I fell in love w/ this painting even more.
i remember a friend of mine having this card when i was like 12-14 or something... so maybe 10-12 years ago..? anyways it was a bitch to play against, and really nice to find it here after all those years.
This was the piece of art that introduced me to your work. This was the first rare I collected a play set of because of your artwork. your stuff is amazing, and I would love to be able to emulate your technique.
I admit, the first time I've seen this card Illustration i tought was Digital-art. Still can hardly belive is traditional, is just amazing! Sometimes is a pity the artworks on the cards are so little, you can't enjoy fully the art. (Main reason I started play MtG, those awesome artworks)
Awesome works, Loved all your Cards Illustration. Keep up the good job
LOL I know, my question must have sounded quite stupid, I just wondered if it was you or a fake I used to play MTG some years ago, and your artworks have definitely been my favourites since ever: the five Avatars from Prophecy set, Lightning Angel from Planeshift set and Abyssal Horror from Urza's Saga set above all other illustrations I'm sure they must have already told you that very many times, but I think you really are great, your art and style are simply wonderful and so unique! If I may, I just want to say thank you for giving us such great artworks!
