Sharuum The Hegemon by IzzyMedrano Sharuum The Hegemon by IzzyMedrano
This one was another scale problem. She was supposed to be big, but also up close... solution?; add acolytes worshiping at her feet! This was another fun experiment. I ended up doing a LOT of these cards with the Etherium, or whatever it is. That weird magical metal. So it was great practice on metal.

I'm always pleased when you get paid to learn shit that you'll definitely use later.... *ahem* God of War3!

Etherium was my favorite theme in Magic. I love artifact monsters.

It was great.  I learned TONS about how to render metal from working on that set!

I've loved browsing through MTG cards for the artwork for years and this has always been one of my favourites. It's awesome to stumble across it on deviantart. You have so many amazing pieces in your gallery.
Thanks for being awesome :P

Wow, i never knew. I thought they all just picked from tons of pieces of work. It makes it more impressive that you do it haha. So i'm guessing your the Izzy cards then. I really like Ethersworn Cannonist and Unsummon. Plated Seastrider was pretty epic too =)

I have a thing for sci-fi Sphinxes, and this is a great one. I think I'll do my own soon (perhaps vs. astronauts). Hmm.....

A good subtle method to increase the look of her size would be to add birds in back ground. People often get size pojection by the size of birds in the sky, buildings, animals.

Just thought I would mention them, simply because you wrote about your solution.

Very creative though. Tells a small story in a simple picture.
