Art-Blog starts with a large tree

roughly 12x16
acrylic on bristol paper

I was going to make my first Art-Blog post about the artwork I did for Magic: the Gathering's Lorwyn set back in 2006-2007 and include pics of all the remaining originals I have left, etc.  Alas, I still have yet to take some decent pictures of that collection and think about what I am going to write.  So easily distracted...

But until then, I at least have a pretty picture of a treefolk mystic from the World of Warcraft TCG to show.  I really dig how this piece came out.  There was a lot of fussing with the subtle color shifts in this painting - transitions from ultramarine blue to a bright yellow-green to a soft gray-pink and so on.  Fellow fantasy artist and friend Chris Rahn handles these kinds of transitions really well (masterfully, I might say) applying them to spacial relationships and atmosphere to really set a great mood.

So here is "Elderlimb".  Enjoy!
