Hurloon Minotaur by Phlip627 Hurloon Minotaur by Phlip627
My first practice piece for my MTG portfolio. This creature is actually a usable creature for the first set. His characteristics involve a shamanistic look with a series of tattoos to identify their tribe as well as their place in the tribe.

I wanted to keep this kind of painterly because this is meant to be scaled down for the card size.

I understand some viewers might be into anthro art, however please don't request this to be changed to anthro category (or any other category). I prefer to keep this in the fantasy category.

I like how the tattoos loosely resemble the labyrinth in "Theseus and the Minotaur".

I think that may have been the intent for the original mtg concept. I do like the idea now that you mention it though, That is one of my most favorite greek myths. :)

Is this illustration going to be used in Theros?
This art is awesome! I hope WOTC don't waste it on a crappy creature.

It's not in this theros set. I'm honestly not sure if it's going to be in the expansions or not, that's up to wotc. Whatever the case I am happy they bought the card. 

Thank you for the compliment though, I'm glad you like it :).
