Bloodthrone Vampire by SteveArgyle Bloodthrone Vampire by SteveArgyle
Bloodstained lips are even sexier than winestained lips. The clawed up back would be worth it.

Once again, I seem to adopt a primal venom abstraction motif for Magic vampires. Implied spider-leg headdress, webs, and coral snake dreadlock wraps. There's also always something intrinsically unnerving about black scleras in the eyes.

For Magic: the Gathering, Rise of the Eldrazi. Copyright Wizards of the Coast. Art Direction by Jeremy Jarvis.

Headdress by Graveyard Fashion Surplus of Ohio.

The awesome thing is: in the art, she looks a bit like she's contemplating eating herself. The card can actually do that! It's one of those awesome sac-outs that just says "sacrifice a creature", and doesn't specify which one. I've often made her eat herself to set off shenanigans in a B/R sac deck.

Anyway, gorgeous art, nice to see the original on DA. I think I'd better prowl through your gallery and see how many other old favourites turn out to be drawn by you! Keep up the brilliant work!
