Huntmaster of the Fells/Ravager of the Fells

  Huntmaster of the Fells, 12 x 16 in., oil on masoinite

In the new Magic: the Gathering set, called Dark Ascension, for the first time they have included double-sided cards, representing creatures that have the ability to transform into a different and usually much more terrifying version of themselves. In my case, I was asked to paint a trapper who's nursing a bite-wound from...something. What he becomes (after that sun's done setting) is this guy:

  5. When paired together, that sunset lighting on the first piece becomes all the more ominous. Great job on both man!

  7. Dear Chris,

    I came here looking for the author of this art, and I need to say you thanks a lot for making the best art I've seen in years on Magic.
    I love the world of lycans and you did a really good job with this one, I hope it becomes someday wallpaper of the week... Do you have any High-Quality picture file to share? :)

    Cheers.
    Jose.

  12. This card has become legendary in the Dark Ascension set for both the card itself and its magnificant art. Not to mention, it is also one of the most expensive cards in the set, beginning at about $50 dollars per card and dropping down finally to $30 dollars even now. It is used in countless top tournament decks in Magic and is considered their backbone. Great art! I have four of them, and they are definitely my favorite cards from the set!

  13. I have 2 signed copies of this card. I'm looking for confirmation that these are legit autographs.
