So I've been talking about this Lotus for a few days now. After a marathon 14-hour painting session, here it is:
The image comes from Alphonse Mucha, famous for his work in Art Nouveau during the late 1800's. The style is marked by it's elegant and vintage look - fitting for the oldest and most iconic card in Magic. I had a blast painting it. Look for an article from me in the future about the entire process!
