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
