Magic: The Gathering's Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Based on the artwork by Jana Schirmer & Johannes Voss (
Done in Adobe Photoshop CS6
Finally finished this piece! This is my first time doing a full blown background with a full blown character.
There's no other card I love more in Magic than Thalia. Amazing legendary creature!
I took a few liberties with the design as I wanted to try something new. I adore those Napoleonic era uniforms so I've decided to incorporate that into my artwork. My main goal was to make a variation of the design while still staying true to the essence of the original
The sword hilt I cannot take full credit for lol! I really wanted to somehow include Inigo Montoya's rapier in the piece XD I took one of the movie stills and used it as a base to paint over.
Luckily, I had my Selvaria figure to use as reference for her legs
Very happy with how this turned out! Hope I did the character justice! Thanks for viewing, guys
