Xathrid Gorgon MTG by chasestone Xathrid Gorgon MTG by chasestone
This was for Magic's M13 core set, I love that its a Gorgon that can actually "petrify" other creatures. Looking back on this one I feel like i should have done one or two things differently, but it was a good learning experience.

I really really really like this one !

I have one question, what was the words of the art director to create this art ?
I am really curious from where you start you work.

I like how her hair is serpentine yet not actually snake heads as in many depictions, kind of a more 'evolved' look.

"hello? am i speaking to the National Statuary Factory of Greece?"
"yes, you are. how can i help you?"
"i'd like to have a request. a very rich actor is currently building a classic-themed villa. that includes, of course statues."
"yes, go on?"
"i'd like to make a request"
"you can make all the requests you want, of course. how many wil be?"
"a total of six."
"very well. could you please send me six models?"
"im sorry, i dont think i understood. are you saying you need models?"
"indeed."
"why? nowadays nobody uses them, except for study"
"well... nowadays nobody does statues as vivid as we do."

Those aren't zombies, those are the people the gorgon has turned into stone.

I think it's a really interesting twist to make her hair be the snake tails, not the snake heads. Great job!

While I love the execution, lighting, posing, and design, I feel the Gorgon needed a bit of contrast, to make her look more alive in contrast of the now lifeless statues (incredibly awesome agony faces, btw). Perhaps her skin could've included some green shades.
I'm no painter, just a fan, so don't mind my comment if it's too uninformed.

Definitely one of my favorite pieces of card art, the art alone made me really want this card, and when I did get it I was so happy, the piece is just incredible and gives you a really thick sense of doom.

This is..really very cool. I love the angle and lighting and colors, the way you did her 'snake' bits and the sort of flow they create, and how she's almost kind of caressing her stone soldiers.
