The Ogre dragged it's sorry decayed body throuigh the canyons, some instinctual part of it's brain stem still sending the signal to attack!
I had great fun with this character, I always enjoy working on Undead, and he was no exception. Especially as the Grixis world in this set of Magic is almost entirely undead, even the land is made up of putrefying flesh, with the rocky protruberences more like bones poking through.
I wanted to create a strong silhouette which would be framed by the lightning, whilst the focus of the lighest areas would be on his strange axe, forearms and intestines.
