My piece for the Light Grey Art Lab Magic: the Gathering 25th year anniversary tribute show. I chose Ashiok The Nightmare Weaver because they were designed by one of my favorite artists Karla Ortiz . I love the vampiric and generally unsettling vibes Ashiok gives off. If you are interested in buying a print here is the link to my piece in the Light Grey Art Lab Store https://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/collections/a-tribute-to-25-years-of-magic-the-gathering/products/ashiok-the-nightmare-weaver

The second of image of a 3 image series I planned called Wisdom. I did a slight redesign of the character, and dropped the feathers. I also added a little more design in the the bands and belt.

When I was looking through a bunch of photos I collected for reference this face stood out. I am not sure who the model is, but her face is uniquely beautiful almost alien. I had to paint it. Have not painted to much in a couple months so this is kicking the rust off.
