Gisela, the Broken Blade - MTG

For the Eldritch Moon set of Magic: The Gathering. This is one of my favorite images I've made for MTG though there was significant changes required between sketch and final. She was originally about 85% mutated which was reversed to 15% later (omitted between steps 1 and 2 pictured). Hope you enjoy!
