Elder Cathar


Here's the last of my work for the upcoming Magic: the Gathering set. I used myself for reference so the hardest part about this one by far was beefing up my skinny, uncallused, artist hands.

  3. This is one of my favorites by far. The scarred up face, the dagger. You can feel the misty air just looking at it.

  6. Holy crap, this is beautiful, man. I love the hint of that glow where the light is hitting the blade.

  8. Beautiful painting. Now that you've painted yourself as an old, battle scared, king I think you should make sure you look exactly like this when you're old.

  9. Thanks everyone!

    Vinod - Considering how much this dude wound up looking like my dad I think it's basically an age-progression of me (if I was a badass, that is). Lets just hope I can avoid that scar :)

  11. Does your Dad always handout swords or was this a special occasion?
    "Happy birthday son! Have a sword!"
