Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

A-fucking-men.

Commission - Nicol Bolas

Please note, this piece was a commission and is not for sale. While I do take commissions (see below), I do not remake pieces that I have already made. Thank you for your understanding.

About : Here is another dragon from Magic the Gathering. Bolas sits atop his rocky perch, clutching a mana sphere in his talons. He is accented in metallic gold on his armor and scarf. I even broke out the airbrush for this one to get some nice gradients on the wings. Cel Vinyl airbrushes beautifully!
