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 :)

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!

Though I love the original Thalia artwork, I could totally see this on a MTG card of its own. Wizards should not only reprint Thalia but also use your artwork. Great work!

Fantastic, probably my favorite digital painting piece of yours. Do you still work in watercolours though?
