I just reread the description. I always interpreted it, that the Knight was humanoid below the hips, just with scales and maybe a tail. But your interpretation could also be correct, MA. It is only said that his lower body was draconean, without a detailed description aside from the colour of the scales.

Coltaine- Interesting! Admittedly, the card would probably look cooler if it was a closer up image of Rake and just had scales trailing off toward the bottom... more intense and character focused. I will experiment with that.

Thanks Santos.

I am not happy with Oponn yet, so I decided to do a quick color comp, which I like the direction of more. From here on out, I plan to render it much nicer, touch up the others I've done, and increase the image sizes to 11x19".

It looks very nice, although I also really liked the original background colours. Would it perhaps be an idea to combine them? So give the female twin the lighter background, which then gradually phases in to a darker background for the male twin, to stress their push-pull opposites?
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

It's been over a year since I've done anything on this project. So I started up Oponn again and it's getting there!

I love it! This really captures their duality and sociopathic mischievousness.

Here's a progress closeup of the Orb - it's almost done! I switched up the design to make it less scepter/swordish and more orby.

I like it!

Your final on the Twins was brilliant! it needs to go in the wiki if it hasn't already!

Thanks! I'm excited to revisit this project and bring the art closer to where I want it to be. I visited the wiki the other day and need to get ahold of whoever puts the images up, so I can send the final versions and remove work in progress ones.

BTW dude I love your recent painting of Quick Ben and Kalam fighting on the rooftops.

Here's another in progress closeup - Mason of Death. Getting very close to how I envisioned this character.

These are so beautiful, I'm in awe! I just foolishly decided to attempt to make a deck but nothing this ambitious with detailed (and did I mention BEAUTIFUL artwork of such talent?). Thank you mate, this is amazing. The Mason takes my breath away.
