Heirloom Blade - MtG Commander 2017
My very first Magic: The Gathering card has been released! =D 

This was a very big moment for me, both as an artist and a nearly lifelong fan of Magic: The Gathering. I have a lot of things I want to say, but I'm currently a sobbing, snot-covered mess of happy tears and personal fulfillment who can't string together much of a coherent thought. So instead I will just say thank you to Wizards of the Coast, and especially to my art director Mark Winters, for giving me an awesome first assignment, and being one of the most helpful and understanding ADs I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

While pregnancy complications have caused me to take a hiatus from Magic work over the past several months, I can't wait to work with their wonderful team again in the future. There is a reason artists return to Magic year after year, even when they are working full-time studio gigs and juggling a dozen freelance clients, and it has everything to do with Magic's amazing creative team and the wonderful worlds they allow us to venture into.

To all my artist friends aspiring to work on Magic cards someday... keep going. Keep submitting your art. Keep making work that you love and sending it in. It took me five submissions over the course of a few years to get my first assignment, and along the way there was plenty of frustration, confusion, and tears. But after seeing the card pop up in my Twitter feed today...

Worth it.

I am terrible about keeping DA updated and answering my notes on here. So if you want to see what I'm up to lately, read my ramblings, or get in contact with me in a way that won't take me two months to reply, you can friend or follow me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/carmensinek

Greetings from a norwegian fan🤗 First of all your art is really beautiful! Second, I wanna ask if you are open for commissions? And if so, how much do you charge (ca) for a quite detailed painting?
