Proudeye Lion by TereseNielsen Proudeye Lion by TereseNielsen
For the most part, my love is painting people however animals and particularly the cat species are close runners up. This was done for a Magic card that ended up (thus far) only being used in some online Magic tutorial ... or something like that.


I used the same mediums I always do these days, acrylic, colored pencil and oil.

*** I have archival PRINTS in stock of many of my works. Please feel free to send a note if there is a particular one that interests you.

Eh!...

"scrounges around through stacks of notebooks, and other crap"...

Found it!

I knew I remembered this piece (and your name). In my Magic cards, I've got one called the "Silvercoat Lion." I've also got another one of your cards called the "Essence Warden".

Hehe, I always remember magic cards that are really beautiful. I keep them well-protected in my Magic card book packet.

Magic cards are wonderful!!! I used to actively play them, until my wallet finally complained. So now I just buy them for the art instead of for making a good deck. I've found a lot of awesome artists this way.

Wouldn't it be great if you could do a card for Magic?

It would be great :D an artist for a card that I use was at a con lately, and I forgot to bring ANY card that he had done so he could sign it. I was sad. But it's so cool to see the artwork for a card I use on here and be all like "I use that card!"

Ooh youve made art for Magic the Gathering! Thats already made into a card by now I think. It must be a 2/2 white cat creature if I'm not mistaken.

Impressive! I like the pose you've chosen; the whole facial expression and body language bring focus to the powerful presence of this big cat. Lions are among my favorite animals, but I could never draw one! xD I like the colors you've used for the lion; it adds certain mystery to this piece. The background is lovely.
