Khans of Tarkir - Warden of the Eye

One more card from the Khans of Tarkir - Magic: the Gathering release titled Warden of the Eye. It might seem an odd thing to say, but after about 7 years of painting Magic cards, I feel like I am starting to come into my own.  This week anyways.  Next week I may feel completely inadequate, but I will take the small victories when they come along.

This card, Warden of the Eye, was a combination of 3D for the background and scrolls, which I used as a starting point to paint over, and invention based on my initial pencil sketch.  Check back later in the week to see the Behind the Cards post that will show some of my process on the three cards from the Khans of Tarkir release.
