Singaporean artist Rachta Lin has illustrated her first-ever Magic: The Gathering art, and recently, she revealed how she illustrated the Dungeons & Dragons character Drizzt Do'Urden for the brand new crossover set, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms.
Over on Twitter, Lin shared a minute-long video of how she illustrated Drizzt, and it looks like the artist was commissioned to create it for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set. Watch her art video in the tweet below:
Ready for an epic #Drizzt artwork video? I received many encouraging messages for my first #MagicTheGathering art. You are so sweet🥰 Thank you!@wizards_magic Adventures in the Forgotten Realms releases 23 July.

However, it looks like her version was not used for the main set. Could this art of Drizzt be featured in an upcoming Secret Lair drop? It would be awesome to have this art on a playmat.
Drizzt is a drow elf escaping the shadows of Lolth to forge a path up to the light. A hero who is following the compass of his conscience into the blinding world above, and hoping it will lead him to people worthy of his sacrifice. He has a feline companion, Guenhwyvar, and both characters are featured in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. You can watch the animated short featuring Drizzt here.
Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is set to release for tabletop worldwide on July 23, 2021. Check out the spoiler section at MTGRocks.com. It’s now available digitally on MTG Arena and Magic Online. The Adventures in the Forgotten Realms products are now available for preorder.
