    ROUND #263 - Mirrodin Tangle Stalker

    topic:

    ROUND#263: Mirrodin Tangle Stalker

    Mirrodin is one of the many planes present in Wizards of the Coasts’ long running card franchise Magic the Gathering. The world of Mirrodin and the creatures that inhabit it have both metallic and organic elements to them. The dense jungle of Mirrodin, known as “The Tangle” is populated by elves and beasts. Your job this week is to create a creature that would inhabit this dense jungle, both it and it’s environment being a twisted mesh of metallic and organic elements. The definition of “Stalker” is up for interpretation but I’d like the creature to display some tendency towards stealth rather than brute force.

    You can learn more about the world of Mirrodin here:
    Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirrodin
    Though you would probably get far more detail here:
    MTG Wiki: http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/Mirrodin_(plane)

    Round Requirements:
    - The Creature’s design should incorporate both organic and metallic elements
    - The Creature must reside within “The Tangle”, a dense jungle-like environment on the plane of Mirrodin
    - The creature need not adhere towards the frame dimensions of a Magic the Gathering card, but you may if you like
    - The creature should exhibit characteristic of a “stalker” in some way, though it is largely open for interpretation


    Deadline:

    June 20th, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    This one should be interesting...
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    I've always wanted to draw a magic card. Looks like here might be my chance. And I've always liked The Tangle too.

    Now, what creature type(s) to choose... (+10 points to whoever chooses oyster!)

    Just thought I'd show some images I found quickly as a basis for inspiration in case there are a few without any Magic knowledge and would like to join in

    I've got images of artifacts, tangle creatures and a mixture of the two so enjoy.

    Thanks Tchuk! I really didn't have much knowledge of the world so was reading through the wiki links Si put up, but the images are really helpful! I had a lot of fun in the last one so will try a stab at this too I think.

    No problem Quint I just wish I could link better images, I'm not up on all the lore but I figured I could help somewhat at least.

    Either way it seems this week shall be quite a quiet week for entries.

    Here's my work so far anyway

    Just some quick sketches, with the help of my MtG playing friend we thought about doing a creature large enough to actually encompass the forest, perhaps with tree legs to confuse people and make it look like they're going in circles when really they're being followed.

    I just couldn't help but love image 3 though, just the whole 'too close for comfort look'

    Composition didn't feel right on this, so a bit of a change

    C.O.W. #264. Mirrodin Tangle Stalker - WIPs Thread

    aaand some dramatic lighting

    I'll add more later but after I get some reference shots for the person and the perspective so I don't make too many mistakes before I get stuck in.

    Hunter: If you have Photoshop, you ought to be able to open the PDF file, then hit Ctrl + A to select the whole document. Then do a copy with Ctrl + C, and then go to the File menu and create a new document. It should automatically create a new blank document that fits the dimensions of the PDF perfectly. Then just Ctrl + V to paste it, and resave that as a new file format.

    Also, in general for anyone who didn't know, that's also a great way to modify the supposedly "unmodifiable" PDF file format. Takes a little effort, but overall, really quick.
