Random WOW TCG cards

Here is a sample of WOW TCG cards I've done over the last 4 years in no chronological order. These were a lot of fun to work on, and since I've had no formal training in illustration, this is basically where I cut my teeth in full color. So saturated!


  1. Your painting style is so awesome! I especially admire the looseness in a lot of your illustrations. Have you ever made or considered making a tutorial?

    And I've been dying to ask: Photoshop or Painter? :)

  2. thx jordan! I use photoshop, athough i have painter, i haven't spent much time yet learning the ui. I have never made a tutorial. If i did, it would be a sad spectacle.

  3. Man, I would pay good money for a tutorial by you, haha. I have also learned mostly by myself, so I'm really curious about what your methods are.

    Anyway, thanks for the response. You're an inspiration!

  4. I like,that not all of them are detailed, but they look completed. As my teacher said,you need working in such way, when having stopped in any moment it would look finished
    Cool ilustration man!=)

  5. I frist saw you art through these magic illustrations and then when looking at concept art from Blizzard I noticed the similar style. So sketchy but still so clear. You have come such a long way.

    Keep up the brilliance!

  6. Awesome, awesome stuff, man!
    Really like your style and colors!

  7. really really amazing work. I can't decide if your stuff inspires me to paint more, or inspires me to stop painting and never try to paint again, lol.

  8. You're crazy Tyson. I've never met you, but I've seen your work. You gots skillz man.

  9. Man, I really like your work! I´m a 19 year old "drawer", and one of my biggest failures is that i dont paint; but after seeing your stuff, i wanted to do that!
    Now, all i want to know is how you paint, what materials do you use.
    I´d really appreciate if you answer me. All i can do is left you mi e-mail for you to do that:
    help an in-progress kid please :P

  10. I didn´t read the other comments, sorry. I thought you painted your work outside the computer. Amazing work, anyway :D


    PD:i never learned how to use photoshop, but i never tried also

  11. Was hunting everywhere for a decently sized picture of Crusader Strike, yay! Any chance of fixing the link for the pic and give as an even bigger version?
