Llanowar Reborn, Philip Straub (2D)

Title: Llanowar Reborn
Name: Philip Straub
Country: USA
Software: Painter, Photoshop

One of the Magic The Gathering cards I painted about a year ago. I swear I repainted this thing about 6 times until I got the look I was going for. The image depicts a dead forest that has been reborn (thus the old stumps sprouting new trees) I think I made about 100 foliage custom brushes in Photoshop and a bunch of nozzles in Painter to achieve the effect.

This image is also available from my print dealer, The Gilded Griffin. The run is limited 150 hand proofed, signed and numbered by me. If you're a magic collector check them out they're selling through pretty fast.


I hope you like:)

This looks incredibly real, and a little bit dreamy at the same time. The amount of detail and texture is amazing.
