Magic the Gathering - Crusade

Recent Magic the Gathering card.  Loved painting this one.  My daughter is the model for the gorgeous lady in the painting (made to look a little older than she really is) and I am the model for all the other the poor souls rushing into battle, most likely to be maimed or get their heads smacked in by a grumpy troll or ill-tempered ogre.  At least they have this snapshot to send back home, pre-battlefield maiming.

It even managed to make it as the MTG Wallpaper of the Week!  Wahoo!

5 limited edition giclee prints are available of this image.  11 x 14 on stretched canvas for $200.  Photo prints are also available.  Email for more info.
