Hey everyone! o_ov
This is another card `janaschi and me did about sixty years ago for Magic: The Gathering's new Innistrad set. It's an awesome set and they're starting to finally show the cards so we can share this.

Lots more to come!

I love this picture. I love this card. I cannot express the warm feelings it gives me, and I have based entire decks around this notion of someone training up the weak and aiding those he can't help themselves. Damn this picture makes me wax poetic.

I love this picture.

I love this 'character' despite his lack of history.

This is literally my favorite card out of all of them. You have NO idea.

This is incredible. I love the lighting, pose, and the character as well. You get such a strong sense of what could be happening just by a quick glance.

Excellent motion. Fantastic lighting. I love how you captured his arm hair without drawing each hair.

Lovely arms you've given him and the pose looks natural. What kind of sword is that, a rapier?

One of my favourite Magic cards, not least for the art. Incredible pose and lines of action - the eye is irresistibly drawn along the sword and his outstretched hand...

Awesome!

Isn't that a sides-sword? In that case you should have made a dull ricasso for his fingers to rest on.

sixty years, hmmm? you're lucky - most artists die before recognition bestows her favor, even if you were talented at negative-some-odd-years :P This was a great inspiration for my concept of Jonathan Harker (from Dracula). Thank you!
