Glamerdye by RalphHorsley Glamerdye by RalphHorsley
Glamerdye

Magic the Gathering; Eventide. ©Wizards of the Coast

Acrylic, Approx 11" x 7.5".

Original artwork for sale; UK£300.

The Faerie, enraged by the magics cast upon it, prepares to charge into combat upon its insect mount.

I wanted to show the rider and mount looking powerful, and about to attack. To show this I chose a viewpoint from below, which gives a greater sense of menace, and strength. I combined this with a light source from out of the frame, and focused the lance and stinger in the same direction. This gives the sense that something is about to happen there.

This is the third and final image I am posting in the Eventide set. There is also some information about it on the Wizards website, here:

Very nice. I love red and green in combination, so I got a weak spot for that :XD:

Oh fuck! Giant hymenopterans! Are the sting from these much worse then regular ones? I hope not, because I am allergic. =P
