Thalia by merkymerx Thalia by merkymerx
Magic: The Gathering's Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Based on the artwork by Jana Schirmer & Johannes Voss (:iconjanaschi: and :iconalgenpfleger: respectively)
Done in Adobe Photoshop CS6

Finally finished this piece! This is my first time doing a full blown background with a full blown character.

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 :D

Very happy with how this turned out! Hope I did the character justice! Thanks for viewing, guys :)

This is probably my favorite piece of MTG fanart. I wish this could be made into a promo.

Wonderful version, I really like the uniform you gave her and the pose is very good too. Might actually prefer this to the actual card art!

I like the design of her uniform and the way you used the light here is really amazing.

This could very well be the alternate art for a Gameday card of Thalia ^^ It would be stunning

If we return to Innistrad, wizards should buy this piece from you for a new Thalia card!
