Hello.
I hope you don't mind if I give an honest critique, but I think the perspective is a little off.
The painting and concept are great, but it looks like the head of the guy is really big, instead of being just close to the camera.

This chap goes so well with Bane Alley Broker (she can have some Illusionist’s Bracers to double her card advantage).

It's really funny, I saw this card and was instantly under the impression it was a self portrait, though I see you commented it was your brother. It's pretty interesting card though, I really like your work!

This was a digital painting so it's not possible to sell the original but getting a print is a possibility. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you more details.

When I first saw this art on the card, I was all "Aww, someone Photoshopped a photo..." Then I looked harder, like Rafiki told me to do. I then shouted "IT IS DETAILED!!!!" Kinda like Human Frailty.

Very nice, very nice.

I believe that you have beautifully captured the supremely creepy and inspiring nature of the Dimir in this picture. The beauty of this photo, especially through the somewhat subtle use of distance, is that one can only begin to wonder if the whispers he hears are magic....or madness!!! Bravo!

Me and my roommate thoroughly enjoy this piece of work, despite what critics are saying about it. All of the Magic cards that use your art are single-handedly my favorite art in the entire game. We both look forward to seeing more of your talent grace our decks.

The card doesn't show it very well, but I love how the tail/spine wraps around the guy. Very nice detail, considering how the spell works and the card's name. Love it!

i love the style of this, how the head and hands appear to be out of proportion to the rest of the piece, and that creates almost a twisted, sinister feel. love it

My head now hurts from trying to process all of this while still being so sick. I shall come back to this later, so that my head can continue to hurt from processing this, but without being as sick.

So what inspired this almost fish eye looking perspective? I like the style just wondering what the thought process behind it was.

The brief said the guy was starting to go crazy from working with dark magics and I thought that might translate visually as perspective being skewed. I took some photos of my brother for reference as a start and distorted them in PS to get an idea how it might look. I also tilted the table to an unrealistic angle to continue the idea.

Thanks for the reply. The perspective does a lot to show that madness can't wait to see this one a card, especially foil should look awesome.
