Also more Great Wave riffing here in the water-power effect thing. This is more my speed, when it's considerably subtler than a sledgehammer.
As for not my speed, the dueling background here has full detail at front and then becomes suggested as you go back. I'm trying to get more comfortable with using large chunks of black, but losing detail is tough.
This was an experimental comic based on a Magic news item that made me think about Bill Burr, actually.
And as I look at it now, it makes me think of the recent mini-controversy from Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch about Bugs, Thugs, and harmony, or lack thereof.
Fun Facts: I traced my own hand for this, Thanksgiving style! I liked striving for minimalism here, as I tend to loathe not going all out...practicing restraint when it comes to art is something I associate with weakness, which is itself probably a weakness of mine.
Easter Eggs: It's made strictly of black, white, and red; thumb is downward.
Fun Facts: He's famous for the card Cruel Ultimatum, it seems (wasn't really plugged in during Alara block cuz college), so they asked to put him in that card. I met him at the Born of the Gods prerelease, but he didn't know I was the guy who did the piece. We were formally introduced later.
In case you want to know how I did against him, I tried to target his hydra with Retraction Helix, he kindly indicated that's probably not wise, I tried targeting my own guy, he kindly indicated that's probably not wise, I waited until next turn for the summoning sickness to wear off. Long story short, he won.
Easter Eggs: Chicken drumstick and McDonald's fries.
