I started with this project where I take a name of a playing card (I'm using Magic 2012 here) and try to create a own image just by reading the description and not take a look at the image that comes with the card.
I'm currently working as a freelance artist and I want to improve my portfolio to send to card game publishers. It would be a dream come true to be able to draw cards for those publishers.
So that is why I started this topic, I hope to get a lot of feedback while I post my wips here of the cards I want to make. Here is a list I combined:
- Drowned Catacomb
- Glacial Fortress
- Sunpetal Grove
- Rootbound Crag
I also had a look at the Magic Style guide which you can find here:
and more information about the thinking process of the images: http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazin...om/feature/252

To let things started, I choose the Swamp card first.
I started with creating some quick thumbnails and made the canvases of the ones that I liked a bit darker:
Then I made a small color sketch of one of the thumbnails.
I currently have only one sketch to show. The plan is to create some more so I (or we ) can choose the best one to work out.
