Telpalo, Merman of Ixalan

Skills: Character Design, Illustration

A few months ago, I felt like crafting a character for the Magic the Gathering setting known as Ixalan. I always liked the appearance of their merman cards, so I created this fellow, Telpalo, a merman wizard and planeswalker. I enjoyed working on this picture, using the brushes and masks to create the scaly textures, the waves, and the color blending.
