WIP: Mat Inks Preview

13 Favourites
Preview art for a time-sensistive piece (shrunk down dramatically, so the lines might look a wee fuzzy).

This is a card mat that I will be using for myself, starring several big names in the Magic: The Gathering right now. Non-Magic folk won't get the joke, i'll explain it (as non-Magic as possible, to not bore you lol) when its done. But for now? All you Magic folk may recognize the Mirran Crusader up there, terrorizing some good, honest Green and Black creatures. The bastard.

His reign will be over at the end of the month, and I need this mat done and printed by then to celebrate. Then its back to finishing work that needs finishing (like you, Ivy!) and such.

Artwork done by me; all characters (Thragtusk, Bloodgift Demon, Elvish Archdruid, Phyrexian Obliterator, Mirran Crusader, the Scars block swords, and Thrun, the Last Troll) are property of Wizards of the Coast.

Man even in simple line art there is much to see. I love the blades this guy has! I don't know what a mat is in this context though.

thanks much Patricia! It's an inside joke to a card game I play, i'll explain in a (non-nerd, lol) context when its done, but for the most part its just a gag for Magic card players. niche group, but a group!

:ohnoes: Wow, those creatures towards the right are fantastically designed here both in lines and expression! :wow: Reminds me a lot of the old cartoon shows like MiB and Ghostbusters that had those bizarre and creepy aliens and ghouls! :nod: My fave is definitely the top right. A fantastic action sketch, this pic will look amazing if finished! :clap:
