Fischer Paints- Legendary Planeswalker, Jaya: Fiery Negotiator for MTG
Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022
This month, I take you through a hot one. (Like literally, she’s all fiery and stuff.) We’re talking Jaya: Fiery Negotiator for the up coming MTG set, Dominaria United.
She is acrylic on Panel. And we use warms and cools the get everything to pop as well as talk about using complimentary glazes to neutralize color if it is too hot. (Though I am guessing Jaya would disagree, nothing is too hot for her.)
I hope y’all dig it, let me know what you think in the comments!

Great piece, great video!
The way you explained your own insecurities during the various stages was fantastic! It is so encouraging hearing such a proficient artist being open about these, and the idea of creating this anker to boost one’s confidence (“I can paint!”) is a neat idea.
Thanks again for all the hard work you put in allowing us to follow along in the process! Much appreciated.
