Hallowed Spiritkeeper on eBay!

Hallowed Spiritkeeper
16x12 acrylic on paper

This here is "Hallowed Spiritkeeper" for Magic: The Gathering. I don't necessarily know if this is a considered a "high key" painting since it certainly has a few darks in it. Nevertheless, it is the highest key painting that I have done which was pretty fun to try out.  I think it forced me to use subtleties of tone and color that I do not often tinker with - and that's a good thing.

Obviously, it's a white card and portrays a mystical figure that guards a realm of spirits so I wanted to play up the almost "heavenly" mood with lots of white and light colors. His costuming is regal and robe-like and the wall behind him is unblemished white marble. Beyond the wall is an ethereal glow.

The appearance of the spiritkeeper is purposely straddling the line between benevolent and malevolent. He guards the gates without alignment, without prejudice and that's the kind of mood I wanted to capture.

If you want to own this painting, now's your chance! It is currently on eBay. Please check out the auction!
