Commission info: changinghand.deviantart.com/jo…

Just a quick little Guild Wars 2 commission I did for fun. I only made them the still image, but I decided to have some fun in After Effects for a bit since I haven't used it in a while.

The character is Simu from "The Crimson Raven" guild.

Opened up for some commissions! Check out the journal post for a bit more information if you're interested: changinghand.deviantart.com/jo…

Here's a big project that I'm helping out on. I'm helping out with a card game based on the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" by Luo Guanzhong. For those of you that aren't familiar with this novel, it's a great big epic based on the Three Kingdoms era of Dynastic China. The story takes place after the fall of the Han Dynasty and the ensuing power struggle between various factions, most notably the clans of Wu, Wei and Shu. The achievements of the many warriors, warlords, heroes and villains are detailed throughout the book. 

In order left to right: Cao Ren, Cao Hong, Xiahou Yuan, Zhang Liao, Zhang Bao, Zhang Liang, Cheng Yuanzhi, Deng Mao, Cheng Pu and Gan Ning

Clan of Wei: Cao Ren, Cao Hong, Xiahou Yuan, Zhang Liao
Clan of Shu: Zhang Bao 
Clan of Wu: Cheng Pu, Gan Ning
Yellow Turbans: Zhang Liang, Cheng Yuanzhi, Deng Mao

*Client Testimonials
"Matt Lara is, without doubt and exaggeration, the best artist I've had the pleasure of dealing with to date. He is service-minded and efficient; he genuinely cares about living up to the customer's expectations without sacrificing quality, works surprisingly fast and frequently sends progress updates. He made me feel included in the process of creation, and delivers a unique and beautiful product to boot. I cannot recommend this artist enough." -Katerina Lightfoot Commission

"There are not enough kind things I could say about working with Changinghand. Not only is he quick with responding to messages and the art itself but his attention to detail is truly remarkable, he can portray the mood of the piece perfectly. He is as passionate as you will be to bring your product to life, takes into consideration your opinions and will strive to bring together your vision. A man of his quality is worth every penny because you will not be disappointed. I can easily say I will continue to follow his work from here on out!" -James Hart Commission

"Changing hand is quick, easy to work worth, and pays close attention to detail. His work is of high quality and he even has a DD to prove it. " - EKKnight Commission

"We hired Matt Lara on commission to design the felt for a custom craps table we were building. He came up with the initial concept based upon "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". The idea was brilliant and the finished product was absolutely amazing. Matt put an extreme amount of detail into his design. Everything from the artwork to the actual lines and betting area were flawless. We couldn't be happier with the end result. Matt is a very creative, talented, and professional artist and it was a pleasure working with him." -Klaas Remodelers Construction Commission
