I could imagine him owning the original art Time Walk, but he already purchased the new MTGO one too?

No, he does not own the original Time Walk, he recently bought the new one off the person that won it.

When was it put up for auction? I don't see it in the eBay completed auctions.

I imagine you know that not everything goes on E-bay. If you know the person who owns a piece of an artwork, you just contact him directly.

Sure, but the phrasing ("the person that won it"), and also the new black lotus art being sold on eBay, hints that an auction for Time Walk would probably have been done there too.

What I mean by the person that won it is the guy that won it in the vintage champions tournament, and he sold it to Chang privately,

Thank you for creating such a useful tool, for there has been demand for such a website for some time. I'll sign up and upload photos of my original artwork.

What happened to the art thread on themanadrain? It doesn't seem to be around anymore? Or am I missing it?

Time Walk was owned by D Chang after buying it from the winner of Gen Con 2012.

The thread on tmd is still there but it was taken non-public for security concerns.

Another member uploaded a gallery of Original Art. Check it out here.

Just a reminder, each member that posts a gallery or invites others to become members qualifies to win free Artist Proofs in the month of December.

We have galleries up for:

Original Art
Artist Proofs
Alters
Playmats
Misprints & Rarities
Unique Decks & Cards
Global Sets
Boosters, Boxes & Uncut Sheets

and we just added a Gallery for Aspiring Artists to post their work.

We uncovered some great collections already, we're just so excited to see what everyone else has to share.

You and me both.

Hopefully it can bring out some of the other old collections out of the woodwork.

It's great to see such great galleries posted already, but I know we are just scratching the surface of some of the amazing collections that are out there.

I can't seem to edit my pictures any longer and one of the artist's names is spelled wrong, what am I doing wrong?

The galleries are defaulting to admin ownership when any updates are made. It is a bug that will be identified and corrected asap.

All fixed. Everyone should have access to their galleries now. Also, now that I know what was causing the problem, it won't be happening again.

Yeah I guess that makes sense to make it non-public. I didn't realize I wasn't signed in until you posted that and I checked. There it is, doh. Thx
