Planeswalker from the TCG Magic the Gathering. Character design was very solid but the final art for the card was a bit dissapointing for me. I'm going to make this as a play mat for my desk at home.
Now this is just plain cool looking, I love the design on her with all the vines, your use of light and shadow is great. Superb job.
I agree that Vraska was kind of not attractive in the official art. You made it work!
Would you mind if I use this art for a fantasy set we're working on?
so long as it is non profitable sure
hahahaha my butt hurts now
Aww, you were disappointed with the official art for the card? I thought it was really nice. But your fan art is beautiful as well, really well done.
I love the design for the character but the face did kind of put me off a bit. Which is why I made a good looking Vraska on my version. The original was really very nicely done.
Yeah the face in the original is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. At first I thought it was a bit weird, but I kinda like it now hehe. Yours is of such high quality though that if I were to see either side by side, I wouldn't know which was the official illustration
Wonderful art Aldin! Vraska is my favorite planeswalker and I dare say this is even better than her original art. Would it be possible to get the piece in a larger resolution?
Thanks for the compliments. Sadly this is as large a resolution as it gets. I made the art in this exact size.
Does Vraska have tentacles coming out of her ass? I never saw that before so it seems kinda ehh idk but i love the rest
Mrew. Neat stuff. I have to agree, too; Vraska's card is just a bit too dark to really show off her style.
This is very well done, I'm just confused why there's vines growing out of her ass.
I generally thought having vines on her butt would generate a lot of attention and inquiries and turns out I'm right lol.
I prefer this too. I don't like much the official card.
That is very, very impressive! I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more love!
This is really nicely done! I have to say though that those vine/tentacles are getting pretty close to looking like they are coming out of her but, and I say that not in jest, but purely in critique. This is a really beautiful piece and I would hate for that to become a joke, unless that was your intention in which case more power too you! Keep up the great work,
Hahaha. I did that on purpose.
saw this years ago and loved it right away - glad to see the butt tentacles were a cheeky purposeful inclusion - but tbh I think it would be better without them. this and your chandra show you have serious talent in the emotive quality of your work, ppl react to your pieces b/c they draw us in - you don't need the extra gag to get ppl talking i am a fan of vraska and the original art, but yours shows a side of her that i find more intriguing (not meant as a butt joke, lol) srsly. if you ever re-work this piece without the butt vines, i would love to know about it b/c i'd definitely get it as a playmat or t-shirt, and i'd be happy to write an article on your work and feature you on gatheringmagic.com as a community artist. anyway, keep up the great depictions of powerful and interesting women, and i'll be checking this out as i'm reworking my vraska cosplay for this halloween. cheers
Hahaha gotcha gotcha
All set then! Nice work!
All set then! Nice work!
This is fanfuckingtastic!
