|Mana Confluence oil on panel - 16x20|
Here is a video time-lapse of the painting.
Here is the sketch submitted for this card as well:
Once the sketch was approved, I decided to build a bit of it out in Blender:
And for good measure, here is a gif of the painting steps:
I have always loved the dried out corpses in movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark that suggest a long story aside from the current one being told. As I painted these three here, it was fun to imagine what brought them here and what they might have been seeking. Were they killed, or did they die, content with having found the treasure they sought?
This card was challenging to do as an exercise in patience. Lots of little geometric details to add.
Thanks for taking a look, and when the third card is released, I will post it in my next post. It was an oil painting and I shot a time-lapse of the piece from start to finish.
