I just have a quick post for tonight. Wrapping up a couple commissions on the easel, but I had a Magic: the Gathering card release that I wanted to share, along with some of the process.
This painting was a ton of fun to create. Mark Winters was the Art Director for this one and he just knows what I love. He gave me the green light to go after a St. Michael and the Dragon type imagery, looking to artists like Raphael and Guido Reni. When that is the inspiration, it is going to be a fun commission!
|The Archangel Michael defeating Satan, 1635 - Guido Reni|
|St. Michael Overwhelming the Demon - Raphael|
And the final, which I am excited to share was accepted into Spectrum this year:
Here is a gif of the painting steps:
And the image on a card for good measure. :)
