My First Magic Card! Setessan Oathsworn

Today is a very exciting day! 

That's because over the weekend I found out that my first image (not first commissioned though!) for Magic: The Gathering was spoiled for the upcoming set Born of the Gods! 
This is exciting because I have spent years trying to get work on this game which is known for it's top notch art and artists. On top of that, it's been almost a year since I first painted this image. So i've had to sit quietly waiting in anticipation for it to show up. Now gladly, I can share with everyone!

This had a fairly straightforward description which was to basically show this newly aligned satyr standing strong as a guardian of his new homeland. 

Here's the sketch I turned in:
12"x16" Charcoal and digital

From there I went ahead with the final which turned out like this: 

12"x16" Oil on masonite

And here's the way the card looks. I can't wait to get the physical artists proofs in the mail!
