    A Magical Gathering of Cards |*| 7.17.08

    Hi Everyone! this is my first post, though I've been a long time fan of these forums

    I've been playing a card game called Magic: the Gathering on and off for around 15 years now.. and have always liked making my own fake cards..

    One day I got the idea to try and make my own magic set, and thought that a sketchbook thread would be a nice way of keeping it all together and to try and improve!

    I'd love to illustrate for Magic for real some day.. so any support/critiques/advice welcome!

    Good idea!
    I also like MTG. But only monster-drawings.

    very nice! yeah I always loved the art too (not so much the game, but the art was cool) I would add some more dtail to your archer though. It doesn't seem to stand out enough to me.... just my opinion let's see some more cards eh?!

    Great start! I agree, already looking like genuine cards. I love how well Goblin party reads even though it's quite a buisy composition for such a small image. Good work!

    Can't wait for more!

    Toasty Minotaur

    Another one!
    I also got sucked into magic for the art

    I'm happier with how this one reads small.. it's quite challenging to try to do so

    holy shit! loving this thread. i have played magic for many years, and will continue to play for many many more. these cards seem quite balanced as far as cost and abilities go. Could definitely be real cards.

    Since you are planning on making your own set what kind of parameters did you come up with?
    ex: invasion being multicolored. onslaught mainly creatures and tribes. etc.

    this is going to be one hell of a portfolio piece, even if you stopped now it would be. Keep em coming!
