    ***New stuff*** UPDATED 07/27/07!

    UPDATE BELOW

    Heya,
    Got some new stuff for you guys.

    Wizards of the Coast just released their Tenth Edition today,
    so I thought I'd post a few cards I did for it, as well as a couple of World of Warcraft pieces.

    I am also posting a poster I did for an upcoming Godzilla-esque book called "Tim, Defender of Earth".

    All are painted in oils, but a couple have digital tweaks (like the snow in Flame Tongue).

    Honor Guard:
    (oils on board, 9x12 in)


    Arcane Teachings:
    (oils on board with digital modification, 9x12 in)


    Wall of Fire:
    (oils on board, 9x12 in)


    High Overlord Saurfang:
    (oils on board, 9x12 in)


    Flame Tongue:
    (oils on board with digital modification, 9x12 in)


    Tim, Defender of Earth:
    (oils on board, 15x40 in)


    UPDATE 07.23.07

    Here's a new piece for an upcoming book entitled "Poison Sleep".
    The scene I depicted is true to the story, which is all about modern day witces.
    As I started painting the piece, it started to take on a lot of personal interest for me, so I added a lot of unnecessary bleed to the image.
    To me, the piece is an allegory of Winter resurrecting Spring.

    Oils on Board, 21x25 in.
    I will have this on display at Comic Con along with all of the images above.



    And a detail for you:

    Saw some of your Magic cards at the release today

    It's all awesome, but I absolutely love the Fallen Earth piece. Right up my alley.

    That honor guard really gets me. I love those lion heads. the scar across his nose kind of makes it look to me like he has a fake nose tip (going nostril to nostril and with the color shift happening in about the same spot) but not enough to really bother me, because everything else is hotness.

    Dan your control over this medium is amazing.
    the colors and lighting in your work are all jaw-droppingly superb.
    thanks for these, mate.

    y'know for the longest time I thought your stuff was digital... pld:

    nice stuff as always...but the fact that these are oils just makes it all that much better....very smooth.

    Sweet stuff Dan. It's so cool to see some analog fantasy art every once in a while. Great oils.
    I'm only sligthely annoyed by the fact that Overlord Saurfang is carrying his axe rather than holding it.

    Tim the defender of earth came out really well, the fallen big ben and the scales look 8) 8) 8)

    SWEEEET! awesome colors and very unique designs.
    This is gonna hurt..If I may..I do have one crit tough!



    Its like the girl isnt standing in the orb,but its like she's hanging in front of it.Becaus the background(roks) are blue tinted by the orb's color,but the girl isnt.

    BUT! except for this...very sweet!

    great stuff, and i would have to disagree with Wixxi's "crit". I think the piece is fantastic and the orb's edge being in the foreground in front of the figure is enough to show that she is in or causing the orb to expand out of her.

    keep it up, always one of my favorites

    i love the godzilla one, very slick.

    nice to see the card ones too- they look much looser or maybe it's just that they're smaller in scale.

    Really great stuff as usual, Dan. Wall of Fire just looks plain cool for a magic card. And some cool ideas in, "The painting that shall not be named".

    hey Dan! I thought I would reply and brag a bit to the others that I have already gotten a chance to see your generous in action already (we share emails on current projects). it's a bit like name dropping but I'm more than capable of that and this slightly more subtler form.

    these look great and I refer back to your paint methods and sensibilities often in my own work. helps me understand color and lighting better.

    love ya!

    Jon

    Great to see new work from you. I missed the errant post! Now I can't wait to see it. Ah well. Was it for UD? Love the girl in the dome of energy. One of the nicest compliments that I have received is that my work reminded someone of yours. If only it were true. Great work Dan, I'll keep my eye out for the other image when it goes public.
