Impressive art. She fits perfectly well to the elvish druid concept of WotC, so she may as well be Joraga Treespeaker, Joiner Adept or any other mana giving elf-druid. Of course nothing is more symbolic than the good old Llanowar elves when it comes to elf cards. Keep up excellent work!

Thank you so much! I'm planning on redoing more cards for submission to WotC as soon as I can, they'll be duly posted here.

Very well done. I think this would be a piece that even people who don't know the game would appreciate (which is usually true of the official card art, but not always). For people who do know the game, it's immediately recognizable what's going on, even though this is a very different take on the concept -- and, for that matter, a take that's more directly related to what the card does. (Disclaimer: I quit playing many years ago, so I'm only familiar with the original Llanowar Elves card art; if it's changed, I can't comment on that.)

I could easily see this as something that WotC would have approved for the card. So coupled with the fact that it's just a great piece of fantasy art on its own, I'd call that a pretty good tribute.

Thank you so much. Nowadays I work mostly on game art, so creating pieces that are meaningful for players but can also be appreciated by people who don't know the specific game is something I always strive for, either in official works or portfolio pieces.
