MtG: Lions of Sun Gate by algenpfleger MtG: Lions of Sun Gate by algenpfleger
Hello my dear internet aquaintances!

Here's an illustration I did last summer for Magic: The Gathering 2012 Core Set. They've shown the stuff now so I can upload it!

This one was a real challenge because of the golden gate - gold is something you usually paint in small amounts and in completely different lighting situations where you can just make it seem like gold by making it yellowish and contrasty. In broad daylight though things work completely different and I broke my head over this for quite a bit. I actually think there's probably no lighting situation that's more challenging than burning sunlight. I'm quite happy with the result, so I obviously hope you guys like it!

Also, for whoever follows my blog, preparation for this was why I did the lion and cloud studies.

Personally I'm also working on a couple of things that I might or might not be able to show somewhat soonish *//w//*


Until then! Goodbye!
