Ghitu Slinger - MTG

By ClintCearley
One of two cards I updated the artwork for in the Eternal Masters set of Magic: The Gathering. The brief called for, "..a male Ghitu nomad fire-slinger. With one hand, he’s whipping his fire-sling around in a circle at his side (NOT over his head), winding up. With the other hand he’s pointing at the camera: his target. The fireball in the sling leaves a tail, kind of like a comet as it circles round and round."
I was also to reference the original character design and "keep any cool parts, and reinvent the dated aspects." While my initial design for him stayed pretty consistent, I did experiment with several poses and composition to arrive at this. I'm okay with this piece, not great but solidly fills the requirements. Hope you enjoy :)

Ghitu Slinger has been one of my favorite cards ever since Urza's Legacy. Can't WAIT to smash people with it again!

Looks pretty cool. The sparks flying off of the sling, add a great deal to the authenticity of the fire.

Your mother should have told you not to point fingers at people.
