MTG: Frost Titan

I recently had the opportunity to do my first "Magic: The Gathering" card. (actually I did a few over a decade ago, but I don't really count them) This was a fun assignment, as you actually make the characters up, rather than just visualizing something that is provided. Also, its pretty much the top franchise out there for fantasy art opportunities and insane fan-following...
Hopefully I will get to do more!

Really great piece! Great imposing angle and nice limited color...

Thanks Marc, I was fighting with the fact that its just a guy with an axe standing there... I tend to like card art cropped in fairly close so I put the effort into the details and design rather than the composition on this one.

That's great work Mike, and it's a pretty cool card too! One day I might get the chance to have one in my deck ;)

Thanks Rick, it would be great if I knew more about the game myself to really understand the certain appeal of things...
