The Ancient One by josea302 The Ancient One by josea302
An old rite of passage amongst men of the tribe. The Goal isn't to kill the Old One, for that would prove impossible for a single hunter, but to stab the beast and leave their mark in the form of a scar, or in some cases a piece of the weapon embedded on its skin.

Hi there!
I have a Magic the Gathering tumblr where I post my favorite cards and cards I create. I'm currently in the process of creating an entire MtG block and would love to use your art! I won't post anything until I get your permission to do so. If or when you let me, the card will have your name on it and the post will include a link to your Deviant Art and whatever else you want me to link. Just for the record, I am not making any money off of this, it's just a fun fan project. 

I already asked this on another one of your pieces but I saw this as well and HAD to ask.

Thanks for reading this and responding!

Even a single scratch would be near impossible. It being a snake like animal, it should have extremely fast reflexes and agility. This thing could eat that man in a heart beat. Logically thinking that is.... this is a giant albino-ish snake we're talking about... Great work though!

Amazing <3 I especially love the crown, and you can almost feel the menacing power the snake carries with it's stance

Wow! What is that thing? It's so big!

The bigger one is The Ancient One, so the smaller one is going to be the dead one. Mmm... :|

Great mythology.  I like the idea, and the sense of motion and ominous mood this piece brings to life.  Great work.
