I was asked to illustrate a scene that shows an Angel and Vampire fighting in a style and setting that has a similar visual style to the Innistrad block of Magic: The Gathering.

Presto! Hit the finish button in photoshop and collect the money ;) Actually this last stage takes the most work and can be very frustrating trying to finalise all the little details and get the whole image working together as a whole. Hopefully I managed to get there!
The final step is thinking about what you learnt from the process and how to apply those lessons to the next piece.
Onwards and upwards! I hope someone gets some benefit for this.
