Birds of Paradise by TereseNielsen Birds of Paradise by TereseNielsen
This Illustration was done as a promo card for Magic the Gathering's M11 set.

The size of this piece is 13 x 9.75" and painted traditionally in acrylic and colored pencil, a minimal amount of mediums for me.

I frequently post extra info about specific pieces on my blog. My latest post [link] shows some of the playable cards that I embellished a little. I've also included a detail to show you what a portion of the painting looks like up close, and, you can find prints available as well.

I'd love to hear, for future posts, if there are other things you'd like to know about the art, or the process. My attempt is to be a wee bit informative whenever possible.

Someone should push WotC to do a judge promo BoP with this art in the old frame. I'd be ecstatic to find a set of those in my next GP packet...

Very cool artwork. I like the mystical and not overly majestic feel the bird has. Still wish I had that promo card.

Is this a Reggina Bird of Paradise? It's been awhile since I studied them but I know there are two similiar species, one being white the other orange.

But anyway beautiful work! XD

Beautiful! I love all the intricate curving shapes in the tail, and the color scheme is great.

I love how youve done the tail, all flowy, wispy, colourful and stylized. Because when you think of Birds of paradise you do think of these long colourful tails and shapes
