Dryad´s step

Here is a magic card illustration from core set 2011. It features a guy I did for an older card called Borderland Ranger. When Choosing the colors I was very inspired by another artist called Chris Moeller. He send me a handfull of WOW-cards and one had a really cool wood background that was rendered in a much lighter and realistic looking way than what I am used to. Chris´sky was almost white. So I wanted to at least try to use a more subdued palette and a lighter sky color. This is the result.
Of note: the right bottom part of the roots are only fist layer of paint.

Beautiful,I really like rendering of the Ranger's armor. I recognized the ranger, I have the original card in a stack of may favorite Magic Card illustrations waiting to be framed. Thanks for posting the original sketch too. It is always interesting to see how it started and how it finished.

Your work is Amazing. It is incredible that you do all of your work traditionally. I have a great admiration for that.

I like the small changes you made to the tree from the sketch to the final painting. really helps push that "phasing" or w/e is happening

Awesome pieces and even more awesome that it is done in traditional media. I was wondering do you sell any of your originals and if so how much do they go for usually.
I like the most recent dragon post that you did :)

The sketch in this post looks digital. Do you mix traditional and digital or stick mostly to one?
