I've always wondered: is there a story behind the weeping character in the background?

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.

Absolute bad@$$ery at its best.

Annnnnnnd I just realized you both worked contiguously on this kind of art. My mistake! >_<
 I'm glad I've been introduced to your work now!

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 image itself is so iconic to MTG and memorable, that i recognized it from a thumbnail, and i haven't played the game or seen any of the cards in over a decade.

bravo.

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 :)

I know, my question must have sounded quite stupid, I just wondered if it was you or a fake =P
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 :love:
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!
