Chandra Nalaar: Ignite Your Spark by Cryptcrawler Chandra Nalaar: Ignite Your Spark by Cryptcrawler
1 of 6 pieces I illustrated for Magic the Gathering's 2014 Duels of the Planeswalkers campaign
I really had fun with this one, even though she's a troublemaking red-head.

I am in love with the texture and the reflection of light happening on the metal parts of her armor. Very awesome.

One of the best representation of Chandra! Is it a real person (then photoshoped) at first or it's just art? It that case, well done, it's awesome!

I love her, and that's coming from troublemaking red-head! The head shot is terrific too. I love her eyes. Great job!

OUTSTANDING. Did you use a reference of someone for the face or just free hand her?

you can put a photo of chain mail and clone it in places where you need it and than paint over it or just modify it using photoshop tools or filters

I thought he painted everything (from his tutorial). How do you know?

:icontenpeoplez:
tenpeoplez Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013
because it makes no sense to paint everything from scratch, and you also notice that he is using textures and photos in other images too, it speeds up the workflow and the clients don't care how you made it, the result is what counts, just like some use 3D rendered image and paint over it

So upon snagging the second copy of this poster from where I work yesterday I decided to do a cosplay of it and googled my way to you. And have now discovered you did almost every single one of my favorite MTG card arts ever! I am envious of your talent. She looks like a real person.

I'd love it if this was her look on the cards... Every Chandra I've obtained I just can't stand how her face looks. This one she looks really pretty, but fierce as well.

Bad. Ass. I can't even. Love the metallic effect you've created. It looks really legit. Add to that all the subtle lighting and reflections... it's like you rendered this in a 3D program. So impressive!
