Gideon Jura, Lone Warrior by Deslaias Gideon Jura, Lone Warrior by Deslaias
So, when I saw the Gatecrash image that shows Aurelia with Gideon, I noticed that Gideon had a Boros guild symbol on his waist. Since Gideon is the last of his world, fought wars alone and stuff, I never imagined him fighting along with others, also because Boros' mechanic - Battalion(When some creature attacks along with other two, something triggers) - means that there is union along the guild members.
And aside from that, another thing blew my mind again, when the Gideon planeswalker card for Gtc came out, all his abilities, had nothing to do with union or support, the first ability puts loyalty counters on him, the second makes him a indestructible, monstruous creature that prevents all damage dealt to him, and the last one, f**king exiles everything but him(which is also a pretty good combo if you exile some creatures you control using oblivion ring).
I was amazed by that card, so, decided to draw a Gideon Jura, with Boros colors, but, well ... he's probably gonna be the last standing, as always.

To all MtG players, go for gruul, usually are the creatures that win the games in draft. As for my standard deck, I'll probably stick to the Invisible Stalker with ciphers, Lazav, fog bank and black removal to buy some time and negate to prevent some global spell from ruining my game.

It's a fine piece, but it could use some more work with it. It lacks the details. The armor looks like a plastic toy for kids. It isn't bad, the design is quite nice, although it would look better if you added some scratches, stains, dirt etc. You could work more on the face, it looks kinda like a mask, but still it is really well done. I like the reflections on the armor, but maybe you should work some more with the light on clothes, make it different than the light on armor, also, you should work more with the folds on this cloth on the bottom.
What do you think?

looks like you spent a lot of time and it shows very good work but it lacks fundamental elements, there isnt a direct sense of lighting and it is making it very busy, and some of your perspective is a little off. i feel you could improve the quality of your work X10 if you focussed more on the basic fundamentals. Lighting, perspective, proportions, gesture, and line quality. tho you are a very good artist!! #critique

Great armor design - looks regal, yet still practical. Not many fantasy artists can blend the two - usually they end up designing a totally unpractical and unwieldy piece of armor.

MTG player! ever consider making a Kris Mage pic?

As a MtG player and digital painter, I want to paint an alternate version of every card I see, never really thought about drawing Kris Mage, I have however, wanted to draw Jaya Ballard, Vulshok Sorcerer and other burn creatures xD
It really surprised me that you asked about Kris Mage, most players underestimate her, because of Jaya, that has an hability that also makes you discard a card, but instead, does 3 damage and prevents from regenerating, and similar 3 CMC cards that so 1 damage just by tapping them.
I have 4 of them in my mage burn sideboard to prevent against decks that need mana acceleration creatures.

CreatorAllanvre Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
and that's why Kris mage is so good, she's turn one pest control that enables your graveyard and madness. she's one sick little spellshaper. I do love Jaya too however, her flavor texts are excellent

It's an awesome character, her flavor texts are the best xD
Her Time Spiral card makes me think of her as the first planeswalker ever, 3 abilities, even though the first is too specific, only useful against blue decks, the second basically transforms a card in your hand into a incinerate that can't be countered, and the last one, can save your game in extreme situations, burn last points of damage, or be used to make everyone angry at you in a multiplayer game with a lot of players xD
I'd love to see a planeswalker card of her, too bad she died.

They should make one for her, her character did become a planeswalker. plus it would be crazy with that mono red "fight everything with fire" attitude.

They should, everyone would go crazy if they made planeswalkers like Jaya or Urza.

oh my, Urza would have to be insanely powerful.

Yes, well, at least we have Karn, he's infused with Urza's spark after all and the power that was unleashed by the Legacy Weapon.
