Oh my god. I love that two cards. These are two cards I just have because of the artwork. They're good but I just have them for the artwork. Amazing!

These two pieces are legitimately the most important ones in the set for me. I've never had such an emotional response to a Magic card, and these two give so much narrative to the rest of the set, particularly with the Aetherborn being new creature types.

They are also gorgeous, of course. Fantastic job!

That's one of the nicest compliments I've received. I poured a lot of myself into those pieces so they are more personal than any magic card I've made.

Thank you ver much <33

El arte digital, y su presentación anterior (Live Fast) me causan un sentimiento de dolor y me hacen crear dichas imágenes, con una música especifica de fondo, una historia detrás de la imagen.

Does it have a backstory? (or did you have one while painting this?)

This is a Magic the Gathering card. These characters only live for 2 weeks to a couple years. You can read more about them online, they are called Aetherborn race :) 

Thanks again!

My friend pointed this card out to me, and it's accompanying card, when they were revealed, and I can't say I've had a card hit me harder emotionally from art and context alone. You've captured the idea of their race and this particular aetherling's imminent passing so perfectly. So much bittersweet heartache in both of these. Even the somewhat happier "live fast" felt sad to me. Great job. Your art never fails to impress me and capture my heart and imagination!

Wow! Thank you so much! I'm happy you got an emotional response from my work. That has got to be the ultimate compliment any artist can receive. Even though this was for a client, each painting I try to expose a little of myself in. It's a scary because you don't know how people will react and you can take it personally if someone does not like it. It's a risk worth taking in my opinion. Thank you again for the kind words, it's very encouraging!
