true strenght comes from humility my old man used to say when i used to lay the smack down on my litle brothers... your piece reminds me of that , you know focuse your asets to a good cause and all that , i love the concept and the piece is breath taking very good job.

This is awesome!!! I always thought Magic the Gathering were for nerds, but now I'm defenitely going to get into it. I have somethin similar to this, but I haven't put it up yet. But this is just so cool how it matches with "Unholy Strength".

I always loved your artwork for the ethereal and spiritual feeling.

and I'm really glad that you were the one who's done Eternal Witness. That artwork is just perfect.

I realy like ths one , because you can give dynamic to a pose that is not so dynamic, its a static pose , and the details and explosions of colours , this is one great piece of art ... :) :)

Yes, I agree. The current art director is really great to work with... open to a lot of variety ... as long as the finish looks great and communicates what it's suppose to.

I like the comparision between the two.

Holy Guy is bathéd in light, looking up, while Unholy Guy is shrouded in darkness, looking down.

Wonderful. However, since I got Unholy Strength today (and like it more), I've :+favlove:d that one.

Now I look, I can see your name on it! Nice work there. Congrats.
