MTG Chandra's Origin.

A glimpse at the assignment text for the illustration. 


Art director : Mark Winters. 
SET ON KALADESH
Location: A busy street on Kaladesh.
Action: We see YOUNG CHANDRA (see p. XX, but she does NOT have that steaming metal pack on her back) making her escape through the streets of Kaladesh, pursued by 2 or 3 soldiers (see [Kaladesh Captain], Art ID # XXX, for the look of the soldiers). 
Behind the soldiers we see CAPTAIN BARAL—the same person shown on p. XX (labelled “Executioner” in the Art Guide), except he has his helmet off. BARAL is tall, broad-chested and handsome, of mixed Caucasian/Indian ethnicity. He looks cool as a cucumber, and has blue highlights to his uniform.
Chandra runs toward us, maybe peeking behind her to glance at her pursuers. She’s a tough kid—she’s been in trouble many times before—so she’s not panicked, just focused on getting out of there fast. 
Focus: The focus should be on Chandra making her escape.
Mood: “Ah, crap. Those guys are going to have my head if they catch me – time to scram.”

8 years of illustration

This month, I've been officially an illustrator for 8 years.
To celebrate, for once I'm writing a note here!
In eight years, starting from absolutely nothing and not knowing anyone, I built a career beyond my highest hopes. And although I know one must never rest on their laurels and that my hard-work-everyday philosophy is just as topical as ever today, I still wanted to use these lines to thank all the people I met and who believed in me at some point.
There's been some life-changing meetings that proved to me an illustrator's life was 5% of talent, 80% of work and 15% of luck.
My only hope now is to go as far as another 8 years.
