Chandra Notablaze by SteveArgyle Chandra Notablaze by SteveArgyle
Chandra, in a rare, quiet moment of not burninating everything in sight.

I've always had a soft spot for firehairs. Both visually, and their mythical propensity for passion. I've always figured that the hair that grows inside my brain is red.

For Magic: the Gathering. Art direction by Karin Powell.

Goggles by Retain-a-Retina Eyewear and Internet Filtering.

This is one of those works I will always look upon for inspiration. Call me biased because I like her and red cards but this is truly awesome.

After I met you at Gencon this past weekend and I was told that I would make a great Chandra, I whole-heartedly agree. I will absolutely be cosplaying her in this next year. Be prepared Comic Con Indy and Gencon, there will be a firestorm brewing.

I'm not a MTG fan, but I just :heart: Chandra! And this picture of her is just gorgeous!

The red hair, the pseudo steampunkness of her suit, the freckles, the attitude, the FIRE!!!! What's not to love!?

Plus, the fact that she's paired with Gideon who is HAWT (teehee... Chandra likes hot things :giggle: ) doesn't hurt matters.

I am going to try to save up for this print on your main site as a gift to a close friend. He was so depressed when it was one of the prizes of a local MTG tourny and he was unable to win it :( Some kid, who had no idea how awesome this picture is, won it D:
