Oh did I not post this? Promo version of the new Thalia I did for Magic: The Gathering :3 I really enjoyed getting to revisit this character. The palette is an attempt of connecting the piece directly to the original version.

I'm gonna gush about what I like about the artwork now.
First off THE COLOR!!! I love how you got the little flecks of green in there from the grass, it compliments the pink so well. The pink in her scarf really made this pop off the card to. I think that's why it stood out to me. here's this very dark and foreboding set with all this death and destruction, then here's this one card with artwork that actually manages to be somewhat bright and colorful. The pink really made this not feel so bleak and depressing.
Secondly The angle: The other artwork of Thalia is nice, but this one I felt like we got a good clear view of her. Its a nice close up of her to where we can even see some great details like the hypogriff signet on her armor. That's awesome! I never noticed that until I got to see the full picture just now. I also really enjoyed that we get a good look at her face and her piercing blue eyes. She's so focused on what's happening in front of her, and the way you painted her expression conveys that so fully.
Lastly, the sense of motion: I really felt like there is a sense of action in this frame. Maybe she's skirmishing with an Eldrazi and took a big swipe cutting up some grass or maybe she's running towards the danger to help one of her soldiers.
I'm no art expert, but I'm definitely a lover of MTG artwork and this piece especially. Thank you so much for this great inclusion into the Eldritch Moon block. It'll be a favorite of mine for years to come. People keep wanting to trade for my Promo Thalia's and I'm like "Noooooo...You can't haz my pretty Thalias, dat art is too good." Again thank you so much for this.
this is a gorgeous piece!
