    just started learning MTG but I've coveted my husbands cards for the artwork for a long while now. I play green/white so I'll be looking forward to putting that druid into my deck The detail on the first card is my favorite though.

    These are all amazing.

    nice lighting in that first image, really good work! have I missed any posts since your "trail of dead" album cover? You definitely seem to have improved.

    congrats also on getting that Lovecraft tomb-defiler scene in the new Spectrum.

    I agree with JS, Cyril. The whole trio are cool, but that first one is a real standout piece. Excellent job!

    I like all three, but I think the first image is your best. I love the lighting and mood of the piece. I think you also did a good job of accessorising him without going overboard. There's just enough stuff to make him creepy. I didg the skull in the beaker, though I'm not sure how he got it in there. I guess that's why they call it magic... ;p

    the lobotomist and the second one are my favorites.
    the first has great mood and composition, great color pallette, the second one has great color and composition however i feel like the cropping of the character is in an way where im having trouble seeing him in the space.
    the monster is cool but i cant understand whats going on. it gets lost in too many places, but the color and the monster's head is really nice.
    oh.....
    and if you play MTG, the lobotomist is B R O K E N !!!!!!!!!!!

    It's too bad these pieces get reduced so much for print...do Wizards of the Coast do artbooks? If not, they should.

    The first too jump out at me more than the last, but close up they all look great. I think the first is my fav with all that atmosphere and attention to details (love the hanging jaw bone for some reason XD). The druid has a great design. The background architecture looks like it has some free-hand wacky perspective going on...but I'm sure no one notices at that size. The green really sets a great tone and frame for the character.

    If only all the Magic cards were this well done. ^_~

    awesome, I agree with the others, the first one is the best here. I also find Grozoth to be a bit too blurry in soms places.
    So, got any cards coming up in Guildpact ?

    Wow the first one looks great, well the others also.
    The skin is amazing in the first drawing. Love the details on all of them.

    These are slick. I think the first and last are my favorite- the last one in particular.
    The lighting in the first is very dramatic, nice shadows and highlights on the figure.
    The second one has a nice shift of color from subject to background- it is very different and makes the subject stand out, but not so different that it looks out of place.
    The last one is just a mind trip- the color palette is wonderful, I especially like the color scheme on the creature's face. I also love the lighting effects in this one, the glare from the creature's tongue(?) and the light gleaming out of the ground where the creature's feet are tearing into it.

    thanks

    Thank you all for the kind words.

    I think indeed that the 1st is my favorite of the 3; everything went just right for it, as it rarely happens in a picture, but when it does happen, it usually comes out pretty neat. Yes, it is I posing for that freak lobotomist, which looks more like a freaky serial killer, if you ask me. However, I'm perfectly friendly when I don't "work" in my basement, I assure you.

    I don't play MTG, so I wouldn't know if it is "broken", but I'm not against a rare, powerful card. Good publicity for me, right? heh.

    Et merci a tous les Francophones du coin A bientot.

    C.

    Arkady: dude, Trail of Dead was a nightmare to do time-wise, but real fun. I wouldn't do it too often, it's sane-challenging. Still now, I am struggling with backgrounds, they're not my favorite thing to do, at all. Still figuring things out...

    Hey Cyril,

    The lobotomist looks really great big, but it starts to fall apart when it's reduced to card size (although I assume the reproduction on the actual printed card is better than the on-line image). Designing for cards is a real challenge, and I think keeping the big value patterns unified and simple is one of the keys.
