Trinket mage fetching for Sensei's Divining Top

Repost frommy university projects blog

Background was the first step, now I tried the 'content'. I did not want the top to be so bright as on the original image so in the end it ended up really dark. I wanted it to be dark so the focus would still be on the Trinket Mage nor the top.

In real life it looks much better. The scan though shows how inaccurate I was when doing this and what needs to be improved.

Experimenting with magic card altering

Repost from univstsu blog

After manga girl I decided to paint on Sensei's Divining Top. What I had in mind was this cards background to become pink(ish) with sakura trees and petals. This idea was already realized by someone - Yawgmoth - but I wanted to do this a year ago already. Now the time has come.

What I wanted to try and figure out is what base color I should use and what should I do to get a clear pink color on that base color. I ended up mixing ombre and buff titanium, but any shade of grey would work I guess.

After this coat I started adding more layers - pink. It resulted in a really beautiful color. It was so bright I had to do this process once again to make the color look dull.

When this was done I tried painting the sakuras and some petals. I finalized it the next day.
