This painting went incredibly fast. It was a rare occasion where I had the image in my head, went for it and didn't meet any obstacles on the way. Such fond memories... too bad that only happens about once a year.

This is a piece from Magic: the Gathering's Dark Ascension release which is coming out soon. I don't paint angel imagery often. The idea of humans with wings is definitely cool but it is always hard to shake the religious overtones. That aside, I thoroughly enjoyed trying to capture the sorrow laden atmosphere that the art description called for.
