I just realized I have never posted this on Artstation. Which I don't understand. I completed this image in 2019. I created it as a promotional image in an attempt to get work from Magic the Gathering.
It took a minute, but it eventually worked. I started working with Magic last year. By the time of my one year anniversary of working with Magic, I will have over 20 unreleased card illustrations.
So in my mind, this image is a double genesis. My first NFT, and the card I consider responsible for my start with Magic.
