I’m Tarkir’ing it up tonight at midnight and going to compile a post for it- who else out there is going?

Hi Tumblr followers! Ever wonder what my inspiration for my art style is? Well, I did one of these, but much smaller, ages and ages ago, so I decided that upon seeing one by Klar (#5 on this map), I’d do another. 
As you can see, it’s pretty big.
Some of these sources are from when I was in my early teens (such as Aido’s Fallen at #2, Hellsing at #4, etc), while some are for my later teens, such as Dresden Codak, Mucha, and a lot of the comic art. In general, I’ve got a big dichotomy between clean cartoon and dirty but realistic, which is why my art tends to be all over.
But i love glow effects!

Me!

Hey guys! So it’s come up a few times that people have realized I don’t have a /ask. So it turns out that this blog is my latter blog, and my “main” one (e.g. random postings and stuff) is at http://amoregloriousdawn.tumblr.com/ . So if you ever want to contact me, that’s how.

Now back to your regularly scheduled fandoms.

Hey guys! Showing off my playmat combination of all of the Khans (that took far, far longer than it should have to reach a half-decent composition). I’ll be playing on it this weekend at the pre-release (presuming Inked Playmats is as awesome as I’ve heard).

Skullclamp

I have one word for you: Skullclamp. A word that once shot terror into the hearts of Magic players the world over. It was the engine for Elf-and-Nail decks, white weenie domination, and even an engine for some affinity builds. Two cards for one mana, reliably. All because of a silly little snafu with making +1+1 into +1-1 as a drawback. Hilarious. It looks like this when you see it in booster packs:

The art leaves something to be desired. Weird angles, super goofy color scheme, it just says “artifact that does a thing” that has zero link to any abilities on the card itself.

A “skull clamp” feels like a negative thing- it weakens you, but drives you to power at the same time, and drains out your knowledge as you wear it, so after you die it’s passed on to others.

But that’s fine, it was a newer artist on a card they didn’t think would make a splash! This year, Vintage Masters got a re-do on the art, and killer veteran Daniel Ljuggren got a shot and turned in this:

 

This is a weird card. It almost seems overly CGI ,with a dramatically bland scene of pale white skin on pale white sand. The clamp is cool enough but it leaves something to be desired. Plus it’s just the back of the head, there’s no drama, almost like a piece of jewelry on a mannequin. 

SO, I decided to take it upon myself (as I’m trying to learn more about digital painting) and made my own version of the art. How do you think it measures up, guys?

I’ve been pondering who I think my Wedge choice should be for the Khans pre. All the color combinations I think define me end up being shards…so after a lot of thought, I think it’s the Abzan. Endure, my brothers and sisters. Endure. 
Some fan art and swag for the pre in a few weeks, depicting the Khan Anafenza, depicted initially by the incredibly talented James Ryman:

I know I promised fan art of Jhoira, don’t worry, she’s coming!
As always, fav it over on my Deviantart, and follow my Portfolio! 

Reblogging again because I want to ask you if I may use this for my profile picture on Tumblr?I didn’t see an Ask option at your blog, so I hope you’ll see this.

You most certainly khan ^,^

As I was drawing Surrak last night, I couldn’t get this image out of my head. I can’t be the first one to have thought of this….right?
