sphinx's revelation

I just wanted my voice heard. Thank you and the design/development team for putting great cards such as Censor, Pull from Tomorrow, Cast Out, and others like these in Amonkhet. Control players like myself have been felt like we've been pushed aside for years since Sphinx's Revelation rotated out, and I must say limited and constructed both feel awesome right now. Great job Mark.

I’ll pass along your kind words to those responsible.

I hope this still falls into the category of speed painting, I took a bit longer to refine this one (2.5 hours). 

While environmentals have been a ton of fun to create and practice with, I feel like I need to keep the ability to render characters honed. It’s really easy to get caught up in drawing mountains and forget how to paint wings and faces - at least from my experience. XD Does anyone else have the problem of degeneration? Use it or lose it?

The character depicted here is Sharuum, the Hegemon, a sphinx from the Magic: the Gathering universe. There’s so much more I would have loved to do with this, but isn’t that a constant problem with speed paintings? C'est la vie.

Comments, critiques, and shares are awesome! But not as awesome as you. ;>
