Done for Magic:The Gathering Innistrad, Dark Ascension. I will have several more of these over the next few weeks, as they either get previewed on wizards site, or become available in stores. Whichever comes first
For Magic: The Gathering's Innistrad set. Brief called for a spectral creature that is calling the spirits of dead warriors on a battlefield. I really have mixed feeling about this one. Time pressure caught me and some elements just didn't get handled the way I wanted. But I learned some valuable things about luminescence and workflow.
Card art for the Innistrad set of Magic: The Gathering. The trickiest issue with this piece was that the magic was to be dark purple. Usually magic is portrayed as bright and glowing which makes it show up well but dark magic requires a light background to show up so it took some balancing before the value scheme worked. The character designs were wide open so it was fun creating them.
