More Magic Art - Eldritch Moon

Awww!  I lure you in with the cute kitten... but is that blood around it's mouth?!

A few more of my Magic: the Gathering cards have been revealed from the Eldritch Moon release so I can share them here now along with some process gifs.

Harmless Offering

At first I was going to make the cat seem perturbed or unsure about being handed off, but given the changes to his anatomy and the mood of the setting I thought it would be creepier to make the little guy happy.

Here is the final image.  At first glance it might seem all is well (especially at card size) but on closer inspection you see the bandaged hand, the tail and foot and then the blood around the mouth and the spot where it sunk it's cute little fangs into the human's hand and developed a healthy taste for human.

Who has three paws, a claw, a demon-mouth-tail and enjoys the taste of human flesh?  Little scamp.
Here is a process gif showing some of the painting steps.

Grapple with the Past.

I don't want to say too much about this card because I think the story is best left to your imagination.

The final image:

If you follow Magic this might seem familiar.  This card is shown from the same vantage point, in a well, as a previous card of mine, Make a Wish.  The little girl holds the teddy bear, shown above, and casts a coin into the well, maybe wishing against some future fate...

Here is a process gif:

Sigarda's Aid

I wanted the card to evoke thoughts of the creation of Adam scene from the Sistine Chapel.  My thought with this was to echo the idea of a divine gift being given, a heavenly being reaching down to give some life-giving, or life-saving gift.

Here is the final:

  7. It's a privilege to share this miraculous testimony to the world for am Sienna Oscar from England. My husband divorced me 4 months back and i have been filled with remorse for i didn't know what to do to amend issues with my husband. I searched for help on the internet on how i could get help in my marriage and i discovered great testifiers about Doctor Osemu who has been progressive with his spells. I got in touch with him and behold, Doctor Osemu told me that he will prepare a spell for me that will bring back my husband. I was skeptical but i had no other option but to work with him. 2 days after, my husband called me that he's coming back home and from that day till this moment, we have been living peacefully. I will highly recommend Doctor Osemu to anyone out there who needs help whatsoever. Email him via:, Call & What's-app him via: +2348135254384 and for more info, here's his Website: OR

  8. DOCTOR OHIRI is indeed a great and powerful man. I am Frank Davis by name am from England. My girlfriend left me and didn’t want any contact with me, not even friendship. She said it was over between us and told me to move on with my life. She ignored my e-mails and refused to answer or return my phone calls. She called me an obsessed psychotic stalker and even threatened me with cops and restraining orders if I showed up. I was absolutely heartbroken and devastated. I thought my case was impossible to resolve until I found DOCTOR OHIRI on the internet. DOCTOR OHIRI casted a spell for me and my situation made a miraculous turn around like something out of a movie or fairy tale with a happy ending. I had a wonderful conversation with my girlfriend After 6 months of no contact, during which she offered out of the blue to come and spend time with me. My relationship has been consistently wonderful and stable. I still cant believe it, it is like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. Thanks to the wonderful work of DOCTOR OHIRI. He knows his craft very well and deals on all kinds of spell. You can contact via E-mail:, or you can whatsapp him on his mobile number: +2347069784152.

  9. Real love spell that work fast to fix your marriage and relationship after a divorce or breakup Recommended by Sonia from USA...My husband left me for no reason on 13th of June 2016. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself and I've tried so many ways and so many spell casters but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about this spell caster called Dr Unity who helped him on his own situation when his wife left him. But at first i didn't believe it because i' ve tested so many of them and it didn't work.he begged me further and told me that Dr Unity will never disappoint me, he cast real spell that work fast, so I decided to try this spell caster called Dr Unity. I contacted him and i told him my problems and gave him all the necessary information he required. He just laughed and told me never to worry that my husband will call me back in less than 28hours and i believed and he told me what to do and i did it, and after he has finished casting the spell my husband called me and started begging. He apologized and came back to me crying for a second chance. Today i and my husband live happily like never before. I can really say that this spell caster is powerful because of his work my husband is home again. I'm now the happiest woman in USA and ever since he has shown me love like never before.
