I disagreed with the art director about whether this guy should be face up or face down. That was the last straw for them.
This was the last piece I did for Magic and with any luck, might be my last freelance piece ever. As this wrapped up, I was just starting Angelarium as a full-time project. That's where you can find all my work now.
The piece I did right after this was Binah, Emanation of Knowledge. The sense of relief you can see in that figure is my own. Seeing the relationship between this piece and that one in quality and tone is revealing about my own state during my transition to independence. You only really need to look at the faces to see how I felt. It wasn't intentional, but it came out that way.
