Posted 2 months ago and submitted by Adam S Doyle | Share link: http://illo.cc/70898

New card artwork out now for Netrunner, the globally popular competitive card game series.

The reference is to Hawaiian mythology. “Aumākua are intimate members of the human family, spiritual relationships with them are especially close and their presence is sought for feast and festivity, as well as in time of crisis. They act as healers and advisors, counteracting troubles and punishing faults.” – J. Gutmanis

A print is also available here.

Testimonial
"[Doyle's] seemingly incomplete brushstrokes form the feathers and other details of the animal. In some strange way it reminds me of the story of the Renaissance painter Giotto who is rumored to have been able to draw a perfect circle without the aid of a compass, as if Doyle just picks up a dripping paint brush and in a few seconds paints a perfect bird. In reality his work demonstrates a profound control of the paintbrush and careful understanding of the mediums he works with."
